Chapala government reports Covid-19 outbreak among personnel
The Chapala government is restricting activity of two of its agencies following the announcement of an outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus among the personnel.
On Tuesday, November 10, Chapala City Hall reported that 14 probable cases have been detected between employees of the Urban Planning Department and the municipal health clinic. According to press chief Felipe Aguilar, none of those affected have required hospitalization, with all currently isolated at home to recover. 
As a prevention measure, non-infected staff assigned to duty at the clinic will only attend to medical emergencies until further notice, while the urban planning office is set to remain closed until Tuesday, November 24. Meanwhile, all City Hall offices were immediately vacated to be treated with disinfectant spray.   
Aguilar noted that 23 government employees have fallen ill with Covid and one has died from the disease since the municipality’s first confirmed case was registered on June 6. Anecdotal accounts from residents of Ajijic indicate a notable outbreak, with several deaths, is now occurring in one north side neighborhood.  
Status reports from Jalisco’s Department of Health show a spike of Covid cases in Chapala this month, rising from an accumulated tally of 193 on November 1 to 220 as of November 10.
