Given the increase in cases and the risk of transmission by COVID-19, the National Commission for Risk Prevention and Emergency Attention (CNE) expanded the status of ALERTA NARANJA for several cantons in the provinces of Heredia, Puntarenas and Limón.

The epidemiological assessment carried out by the Ministry of Health and the National Situation Room, determined a significant increase in cases from 116% more to 866%, which is why these places change their status from Yellow Alert to Orange Alert:
