The measure was resolved “after an in-depth analysis and consensus among health specialists,” said Governor Gerardo Morales through Facebook.
The use of chinstrap will be mandatory from next Friday in the province of Jujuy as a preventive measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, authorities from the Emergency Operating Committee (COE) reported.
The measure was resolved “after an in-depth analysis and consensus among health specialists,” said Governor Gerardo Morales through his Facebook account.
Likewise, he warned that “failure to comply with this new measure will generate a fine of one thousand pesos.”
The provincial government’s decision responds “to the need to prevent possible coronavirus infections due to the possibility of transit of people on public roads who are asymptomatic of the aforementioned disease,” he said.
In this sense, the authorities of the COE in their latest report recommended the chinstrap from Monday 6 on the provincial level and the mandatory use of it from Friday 10.
“The chinstrap is a new prevention tool that seeks to avoid the transmission of the virus between people and must continue to be accompanied by all the recommendations such as hand washing, the use of gel alcohol and social distancing,” Morales said.
