Chihuahua eases business restrictions

JUAREZ – The state of Chihuahua relaxed coronavirus-related restrictions on businesses.

Juarez restaurants will again welcome diners and most non-essential businesses will reopen with limited occupancy as the state is going from red threat level to orange.

“We are making progress in lowering the rate of transmission, hospital occupancy, new infections and deaths, which are the most important indicators,” said Chihuahua Gov. Javier Corral.

"Restaurants may use up to 30% of their tables indoors plus 50% of their outdoor or patio tables," said State Health minister Eduardo Fernandez.

Manufacturing plants can operate at between 30% and 80%, while non-essential businesses can open at 30%. Hotels stay open at 30% capacity with no gatherings on common areas.

Bars, gyms, churches and movie theaters remain closed and liquor stores can only open Monday through Wednesday until 6 p.m.
