Mandatory health screenings (filtros or filters) to enter the Guadalajara historic core have been reinstated and will remain in place on weekends for the foreseeable future, the Guadalajara municipal government says.
The filters will be set up at 21 points of entry into the downtown area, and be in force Friday through Sunday.
Staff at the entry points will take people’s temperatures, hand out face masks if necessary and provide antibacterial gel. The aim is to reduce overcrowding and the spread of Covid-19, municipal authorities say. Guadalajara City Hall has also announced weekend closures in the median strip of Avenida Chapultepec, one of the metro area’s busiest night-life zones.
