Regarding the eventual arrival of Omicrom, a variant of Covid, he said that protocols are extreme in clubs, bars, discos, and restaurants, mainly where they are meeting points for many people.
If any anomaly is detected, first a warning is issued, a warning and in the event of a repeat offense, a fine is raised; on the third offense, the business is closed.
