The measure that had implemented the Governor Wanda Vázquez for people to leave their homes depending on the number of the tablet was not the only recommendation of the Fortress Medical Task Force to control the flow of people in the streets and shops of the country in the midst of the curfew established by the emergency experienced by the coronavirus.

In addition to establishing the outputs by tablets, the health expert entity had suggested to the Government of Puerto Rico that the days of the week be divided to authorize people to leave depending on their sex and age, as a measure to strengthen control of the spread of Covid-19.

According to the document with the Task Force seal, the group recommended that women be allowed to go out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while men should be allowed on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

In addition to the days, it was proposed to divide the hours according to the age of the people:

• 6:00 – 10:00 AM: Over 65
• 10:00 – 2:00 PM: 40 – 64
• 2:00 – 5:00 PM: Under 40

In addition, other measures presented –some of which have been adapted– are to carry out an interview with the client when an establishment arrives to find out if they have any active symptoms and to take the temperature of all those who enter. The person who would be in charge of asking the questions, would have to be protected with a mask and eye and face protection.

In establishments that receive clients, the document recommends that masks be provided to people who show up without one, in addition, to identify areas for hand washing, both employees and merchants. These hand wash areas would have a sign on how to properly perform this process, and labels with instructions on how to cover your mouth when coughing.

The measure of the tablets was implemented in the second Executive Order signed by the Governor. While it was established, it worked on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for vehicles that ended with an even number, and on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays for odd numbers.
