After a significant increase in cases in the cantons of Belén de Heredia, Parrita de Puntarenas and Puriscal de San José, and after an epidemiological assessment by the Ministry of Health and within the framework of the National Situation Room, the National Commission Risk Prevention and Emergency Attention (CNE) makes a readjustment in the alert condition of these cantons, changing them from yellow to orange.

This is due to the fact that in the course of a week these cantons doubled their cases, as was the case of Belén and Puriscal, and up to six times, as happened in Parrita.

On the other hand, an improvement in its epidemiological evolution allowed 3 cantons and 7 additional districts to be reduced to yellow alert, according to a press conference by the President of the CNE, Alexander Solís. This is the detail of these cantons and districts:

Vehicular restriction

With respect to the differentiated daytime vehicle restriction for cantons and districts in orange alert, according to scope N. 212 of La Gaceta, the reform that establishes the correct authorization to circulate according to the last digit of the license plate or special permit AGV circulation for Saturdays and Sundays, where on Saturdays plates 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 may circulate and on Sundays plates 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8.

Early alerts for respiratory symptoms

For the next epidemiological weeks, an early warning is established based on the monitoring of respiratory symptoms that are identified in medical consultations (syndromic alert). Based on that assessment, there is a high probability that there will be an increase in cases in those districts.

To date, there are a total of 75 districts that maintain the risk due to an increase in consultations for cough and fever, which increases the risk of facing an orange alert soon, since they are symptoms associated with COVID-19.

A total of 37 new districts are added to that list, while 29 districts across the country managed to get out of this warning condition. The president of the CNE said that the decrease in alerts is the result of the combination of the application of preventive measures for social bubbles, as well as municipal actions to contain the spread of contagion.
