MÉRIDA YUCATAN.– Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal reported that from now on it will be necessary to use the mouth mask to walk in public places and go to work in the companies that are allowed to open because they are essential turns, as a new prevention measure to protect Yucatecan health.
In a message addressed to the entire Yucatecan society through his social networks, Vila Dosal explained that this provision is based on the results of the most advanced studies in recent weeks by experts in public health that indicate that the spread of the Coronavirus in the air lasts longer than previously thought at the start of the pandemic and should be applied to care for everyone, especially vulnerable groups.
“The use of the mask will prevent our saliva, our sneezing or our cough from reaching healthy people who are close to or in contact with us. Using a face mask in public areas has been a successful initiative in several countries based on the principle of: you take care of me and I take care of you to stop contagion. In this way, we will avoid infecting and going to be infected when going out on the street, ”said the Governor.

For those who have no way to get a mouthpiece in stores or pharmacies, we will make available a simple video on how to make them at home and keep them disinfected. As face masks, handkerchiefs or other articles of clothing may also be used, ”said the Governor.
Likewise, the Governor recognized the responsibility of the population to stay at home and follow all the recommendations that have been implemented to take care of health and reduce risks, while calling again on society to continue collaborating “so that these efforts join the goal of protecting the health of all Yucatecans and move forward all united as one. “
“I recognize the enormous effort that staying at home means to contribute to reducing Coronavirus infections. Staying at home is one of the most effective strategies to help stop the chain of infections. As we already explained, they must go out into the streets alone to buy medicines, food or those who work in companies essential for the operation of society during the contingency, ”said Vila Dosal.
