While beach hours, social distancing, and other health measures are to remain in effect, all health filters from beach entrances will soon be a thing of Puerto Peñasco’s Covid summer past. In fact, the only health filter still in place at a beach entry point is that located in the area known as “Bajada de los Guardado” on the north side of Playa Hermosa, though this too will be removed after this weekend.
Luis César García González, local director of the Federal Maritime Land Zone office (ZOFEMAT), stated filters first installed near Manny’s in the Mirador as well as at the entrance to Cholla Bay had already been removed and additional access points restored (i.e. Mi Playa).
Still, health measures and beach hours remain in effect. This includes use of masks in public and when interacting with vendors (not necessary once you’ve set up space or in sea), no glass bottles, taking one’s trash for disposal, and spacing between rental tents/shades and food carts. In addition, beaches still close at 7 p.m.
