The Governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro, announced this afternoon that on Monday, May 18, Phase 0 of the Jalisco Plan for Economic Reactivation will begin, which will allow the gradual return of some economic activities and is the first step in preparing protocols for the next phases of the plan.   
Alfaro Ramírez clarified that the start of Phase 0, which will last for at least 15 days, does not mean returning to normality in social life and in the activities of all productive sectors, since an increase in mobility o Flow of people in the city with disorder could trigger the epidemiological pattern and delay the Reactivation Plan.
"We are not in a test passed," clarified the state president, who added that the Plan can be implemented since Jalisco is currently in 29th place nationwide in active infections with a rate of 100,000 inhabitants, and to date It has a 10% occupancy of beds in its hospital infrastructure.
"I want to explain what Phase 0 implies. First, for industries that had not been considered essential and that are linked to supply chains, they will be able to start the implementation of this phase, once they have established protocols and will be able to operate at 50 percent of its capacity, that is, essential industries continue to work, those that were classified as non-essential, which are part of supply chains, will be able to start operations at 50 percent of their capacity, we are going to establish the specific protocols ”, detailed the president.  
He added that for " commerce, what we are going to do is that those who handle products allowed in essential establishments, that is, if it was allowed to have supermarkets, hardware stores, convenience stores of the big ones, because what we are going to do is that What was sold there, can also be sold in small production units, in the neighborhoods or in the colonies of Guadalajara and the State ” .
As part of Phase 0, reopening protocols are started by businesses that do not generate crowds, such as car, motorcycle, bicycle, furniture, appliance and electronic or home sales businesses.

A determining factor for trade in Phase 0 and that will be constantly verified is the fulfillment of the density restriction of one person as a customer, for every 7 square meters. 
We need to understand that Phase 0 is a transition stage, that it is a stage of gradual return to economic activity and if the behavior of the virus and the pandemic did not require it, as I already explained, we could make a decision to return to social isolation measures and delay everything provided for in this plan, ”said Alfaro Ramírez.
