Guadalajara, Jalisco. – Jalisco Governor Enrique Alfaro has announced ahead of the quarterfinal match, Atlas-Chivas, that the use of face masks for open spaces will be phased out following a reduction in positive cases by COVID-19 in the state.
“The numbers tell us that we are fine, that we have moved on, and that the epidemic is controlled in our state, today we have an average of 59 cases per day, when in recent years we had 800 cases per day We have the lowest level of hospitalisation, today we have only 21 people hospitalized and during the 19 April death, they represent the lowest level since April 2020,” he said.
Of course, the politician stressed that the situation of the coronavirus pandemic is not over yet, so we have to be vigilant. This measure was made official a few days before the first leg match between Chivas and Atlas, their fans would not be obliged to wear drill covers in the match, as it would only be required on public transport and in hospitals.
So it will be the first Clasico Tapetio in times of a pandemic to be played as usual without any restrictions, although Enrique Alfaro advised those who see symptoms of respiratory disease to wear a sanitary mask immediately.
As reported, the decision was made by health table members, scientists, researchers and academics who communicated with the Jalisco government during this health emergency. This decision will be effective from Tuesday 10 May.
The Liga MX quarterfinal match will be played at the Akron Stadium on Thursday, while the return leg will be played at the Jalisco Stadium on Sunday, with the first two games being scheduled after the use of masks will not be required.
