After months of fluctuating between red, orange and yellow, Mexico City is now — finally — in the green spectrum of the country’s covid-19 risk traffic light system.

As of Monday, Oct. 18, Mexico City Digital Agency Director Eduardo Clark said Friday, Oct. 15, that, due to a “significant drop in the number of new covid infections,” extraordinary preventive measures will no longer be in force.

“As of Monday, in accordance with the Mexican government guidelines, Mexico City will have a green-light rating for at least the next two weeks,” he said.

With the new traffic light rating, nightclubs, bars, canteens and social event salons will be expanded to 50 percent capacity and their hours of operation will be extended to 1 a.m.

Also, mass outdoor events, such as festivals and concerts, will no longer have any capacity limits.

Two-thirds of Mexico is now considered green.
