¡Bienvenidos, peñasquenses! Cómo parte de la fase 1 del plan Peñasco se Activa, durante los próximos 10 días estaremos atendiendo la llegada de residentes de la ciudad que quieran regresar. Cómo parte de este reingreso al puerto deben pasar por nuestro sistema de alta tecnología de revisión de temperatura, por el túnel sanitizante y una vez en Peñasco deben guardar una cuarentena de mínimo 14 días. Nuestro plan sigue por buen camino y de seguir así reabriremos nuestras puertas a visitantes el 16 de junio.

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Residents of Puerto Peñasco, better known as Rocky Point, who have found themselves locked out of the popular Mexican resort city because of coronavirus-related restrictions are being allowed to return.

According to a Facebook post from the Rocky Point Times Newspaper, residents can come home, but they can also expect to spend a period of time restricted to their residence.

Things have not returned to normal yet. Returning residents will be subjected to temperature checks, sanitation spray and possible on-the-spot COVID-19 Rapid Tests, which could lead to an 8-day quarantine at a hotel.

After showing proof of residency, you and everyone in the vehicle will have their temperature taken. If your temperature is normal, you will proceed to the santization tunnel, where you and your belongings will be sanitized with disinfectant chemicals.

Once allowed into the city, masks are required in public and the beaches are still closed.
