Through a statement , the City Government Secretariat (SECGOB) stressed that businesses in the food industry should ask customers to register their stay in the premises through the QR code, in order to track possible cases of contagion.


Likewise, restaurateurs must perform the COVID-19 PCR test on their employees every week. On the other hand, the government and this industrial sector agreed to hold the work tables every Wednesday.

On Monday, January 11, the leaders and employees of this sector made a " cacerolazo " and a call to the authorities to give them an exact opening date to be able to comply with the payment of their payroll.

They also ask that they be allowed to operate with at least 30% of their capacity and the already established secure table protocols.

The SECGOB and this industrial sector will maintain the working groups with the aim of "reviewing the action protocols for reopening, gradually and progressively, in relation to the behavior of the Epidemiological Traffic Light in Mexico City."
