Mazatlan pastry shops are penalized for failing to comply with sanitary measures


Civil Protection performs patrols and discovers people not following safe distance guidelines

Mazatlan Sinaloa.- Two branches of the PANAMA chain of pastry shops in Mazatlán were reprimanded this Thursday afternoon for failing to comply with the sanitary provisions that are carried out as a result of the coronavirus emergency.

Civil Protection personnel and the commerce department of the city council went first to the bakery on Manuel J. Clouthier Avenue and found that most of the people were crowded and healthy distance was not respected.

From the morning, images of the concentration of children, men, and women who made a long line to get cakes or other types of bread and celebrate Children’s Day with the family were released through social networks.

This situation was contrary to that recommended a day earlier by the coordinator of Civil Protection, Eloy Ruiz, who invited citizens to celebrate at home, without exposing themselves to meetings of more than ten people and fewer on public roads.

Commerce inspectors made an administrative act and handed it over to the branch manager. During a tour it was found that employees of the patisserie gave mouth masks to people who did not carry, in addition, they deposited antibacterial gel in the hands of people who entered the store.

Supervision was also extended to the branch located on Avenida de Las Américas, in the Benito Juárez neighborhood. There they encountered a similar situation; people lining up, but without keeping their healthy distance. The store management received an administrative act, but the store continued with the sale.
