Apiqroo reports health protocols remain in place after more than 5 million ferry passengers this year

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — So far this year, more than five million people have used the mainland to island ferry services in Cancun and Riviera Maya. In a report, the Comprehensive Port Administration of Quintana Roo (Apiqroo) said “from January to October, more than five million passengers have moved between the maritime terminals of Cozumel and Isla Mujeres.”

The general director of Apiqroo, Alicia Ricalde Magaña, says that health protocols remain in place even with the ongoing green epidemiological light for the state.

Mouth masks are mandatory during ferry travel

She pointed out that at the fiscal pier of San Miguel in Cozumel, and at the Isla Mujeres terminal, both maintain sanitation facilities which includes the supply of antibacterial gel and the use of sinks with disinfection products, and above all, confirmation that passengers use the mask correctly.

The director stressed that these actions contribute to the efforts being made in Quintana Roo to face the pandemic, which has seen more than 2.1 million passengers cross from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen and an additional 3.5 million used the Isla Mujeres terminal.

Alicia Ricalde Magaña indicated that this week, the epidemiological light remains green, which brings the state into a second stage of reopening. For this reason, she said, there is a greater responsibility to join efforts and thus avoid the spread of COVID-19.
