The director of the Office of Investigations of the Department of Health, Jesús Hernández, reported several interventions that were carried out in the metropolitan area of San Juan for violations of the executive order that provides measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
One of them occurred at the Hotel San Juan, located on Isla Verde Avenue, where it was intervened due to non-compliance with the executive order in the pool area. Among the violations found is the failure to ensure compulsory use of the mask; In addition, it was intervened because the place does not comply with the physical distance of six feet between people and the poster with the number of people representing the percentage of occupation was not visible either.
“In addition to these violations, a birthday party was being held at the site with music and a crowd of people. During our intervention, it was observed that the people did not have masks and the bar area was operating, so we proceeded to request the cessation of the violations and we issued fines to the hotel for non-compliance with the executive order, ”Hernández explained.
Multiple businesses in Old San Juan were also fined and closed, such as La Vergüenza Bar, Cafetería Antojitos del Callejón, La Sombrilla Rosa and Riveras Hermanas Café, where a clandestine bar was found in the basement of the building.
