Mexico City on Friday announced a plan for reopening that would begin next week by dropping driving restrictions and allowing manufacturing and neighborhood businesses to reopen if they meet health standards.
Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said that street markets, malls, restaurants and churches could follow a week later, but at reduced capacity.
The plan follows Sheinbaum’s announcement earlier in the week of greatly expanded testing for COVID-19 in the capital. The city plans to make a stronger effort to identify infections and trace contacts as Sheinbaum, in conjunction with the surrounding State of Mexico . . .
