Tulum, Q.R. — As of May 24, the archaeological zone of Tulum will reopen to the public. The announcement comes 15 days after their closure due to an infected employee. Two weeks ago, an employee of the archaeological zone tested positive for covid-19, which caused the closure of the popular tourist site.
After a disinfection and quarantine of those who worked closely with the infected person, the zone is ready to reopen.
Through a statement, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) announced that the opening hours will be Monday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with last access to the site at 3:30 p.m. The maximum capacity will be groups of up to 10 for a maximum total of 3,000 people per day.
Visitors to the site will be required to follow all preventative measures which include the wearing of a mouth mask upon arrival as well as the taking of body temperature, application of sanitary gel and the practice of healthy distance.
