Chapala tackles Governor’s decree to contain pandemic

The Chapala government won’t be sending out paddy wagons to round up rogue residents who balk at tougher Covid-19 prevention measures taking effect Monday, April 20 by state mandate. Local authorities will, however, flex their muscles to make people comply with the new directives on social distancing, staying at home and compulsory use of face masks in public, announced Sunday evening by Governor Enrique Alfaro.

Alcohol sales explained

Chapala Mayor Moisés Anaya has stressed that his government has not imposed a local Dry Law. However, in fairness to liquor stores that will suffer significant income loss, City Hall issued instructions for chain convenience stores and supermarkets to close off their liquor shelves as well.
