MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s capital has returned to the lowest level on its COVID-19 pandemic warning system for the first time since June. In practice, the changes to daily life were small Monday.
Mask wearing is still common in streets of the city of 9 million, but the rhythm of life in the capital has long since regained a high degree of normalcy.
Massive outdoor events are no longer limited to 75% capacity, though attendees still must wear masks.
The move comes just weeks ahead of Mexico City hosting a Formula 1 race.
Bars, clubs and event halls received an additional hour of operation.
