On May 15, the Secretary of Health of Mexico, issued a clarification to the agreement published on May 14 that established a strategy to reopen activities in the country and added essential activities under the COVID-19 National Health Emergency published on March 31, 2020.

This latest clarification agreement allows newly designated essential sectors, manufacturing of transport equipment, mining and construction, to restart operations prior to June 1 if health security protocol processes have been established and approved before that date. It also establishes that if the protocols are not complied with, the companies or industries that put the health of their workers at risk will be closed.


The May 14 and May 15 announcements outline a three-phase process to reopen social, educational and economic activities based on a color code system by municipalities and bordering municipalities, dependent on the number of COVID-19 cases.
