Governor drops face mask mandate

Tuesday, May 10, Jalisco Governor Enrique Alfaro lifted the mandatory face mask regulation for public spaces in the state, with the exception of public transport (including taxis), and in hospitals and all other health facilities.

pg1bThis means there is no longer a legal requirement to keep one’s face covered while in stores, banks, entertainment venues, on the street and other public locations.   

Students and teachers will also no longer be required to use face masks.

People suffering from any kind of respiratory symptoms are advised to wear masks, Alfaro said.

The operators of the Guadalajara International Airport said they will maintain mandatory masks for at the current time.

In a video posted on his various social media accounts, the governor said: “The numbers tell us that we are fine, that we have advanced and the pandemic has been controlled in our state.”

Alfaro noted that two years ago at this time, Jalisco was reporting an average of 800 Covid-19 cases per day.
