Jalisco activated the Emergency Button or Red Button, which means new updates in health and security regulations around the state.

From December 25th, 2020 to January 10th, 2021, Puerto Vallarta will be able to operate with a certain normality, except that New Year’s Eve parties in hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs, lounges and terraces are suspended.

Similarly, clubs, bars and cantinas must remain closed during this period.

Beaches, shopping centers, public squares and the Malecón can be enjoyed by residents and visitors with no more restrictions than the regular ones (health distancing and face masks wearing).

Public transportation service will operate on a regular basis.

Restaurants will operate with their normal hours, but elements inviting to celebrate (such as live music) are suspended.

Non-essential commerce and/or businesses will normally operate in Puerto Vallarta.

In regard to social activities, meetings with a maximum capacity of 10 people may be held, with the recommendation that attendees belong to a maximum of three different residences (three family units).

Religious and worship events are restricted to 25 percent and the places must be disinfected after each celebration.

These regulations have been taken with the aim of breaking the chain of infections and keeping a balance between health protection and economic activity, in addition to establishing favorable conditions for the gradual return to classes that is considered for January 2021.
