After the virtual meeting with the governors this Wednesday, Fernández decided to restrict nighttime circulation throughout the country to try to stop the wave of coronavirus infections that occurred in recent weeks. According to the information published by Infobae, the president will make these measures official this Thursday afternoon and they will take effect this Friday.
During a press conference held this Wednesday morning outside the Ruca Che stadium, where the second stage of vaccination was taking place, Gutiérrez said that today he will continue “working to reach the respective agreements and, once this is agreed upon, there will be a regulation of the National Executive Power in which the general guidelines will be established and, within those general guidelines, powers will be established for the provinces. “
In this sense, although he did not advance anything regarding the restriction of circulation at night, Gutiérrez clarified that in Neuquén the measure will not impact tourism or the economy. “There will be no frustrations from vacations, there will be no restrictions on economic activity,” he said.
“We need to get up, we need to recover and get to work to also take care of ourselves and protect physical health, mental health and the health of the provincial economy, with which there will be no restrictions on the economy and there will be no restrictions on tourism, “Gutiérrez stressed.
In any case, he recalled that “in the province of Neuquén there is already a schedule in force in which we ask the public not to circulate.” Currently, the commercial and circulation hours are from 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., while bars and restaurants can open until 1 a.m.
However, he noted that “after the irregular transit that occurred in the province and in the country, it is necessary that we establish a new starting point.”
