Tulum, Q.R. — A yellow epidemiological light will be the guideline for the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) to open four of the 13 archaeological zones in Quintana Roo. Margarito Molina Rendón, director of Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH), made the announcement saying that the ruins of Tulum, San Gervasio, Coba and Muyil will be the first to open to the public once the epidemiological light turns yellow.
He explained that these four archaeological sites are ready in infrastructure, supplies, training and protocols, to be able to serve tourists. This, he insisted, will happen when sanitary conditions allow, since they favor the health of both workers and visitors and therefore, the reopening will be during the yellow light.
“We are practically ready now. We already have all the materials, safety health supplies, what everyone knows, a mask, gel, acrylic gloves to protect the ticket office.
“During the weekend, we set meetings with the workers for their ideas and proposals and did drills,” he commented.
He said that 33 employees will return to work at these four archaeological sites once they reopen. He says that now, they are hoping that the state epidemiological light changes so they will be able to set a date for the gradual restart of activities under the New Normal.
