As part of the measures for phase three of the post-COVID-19 recovery approved in the Cuban capital, urban transportation was reestablished, with limited standing passengers on buses: up to 30 people in articulated vehicles and up to 20 in the rest.
The Havana Provincial Defense Council announced this Monday that the trains will restart on October 24, with a departure frequency of every four days, according to the source.
The secretary of the provincial government, Reynier Palacio, informed this government body that, in the meantime, the transfer of thousands of people who were stranded in Havana due to the coronavirus epidemic will continue.
He recalled that the school year will begin on November 2 and that children without family protection who live in special homes for them will remain there and activities will continue outside those institutions, complying with the established hygienic-sanitary measures.
The gyms in closed premises are not authorized to offer their services, for now, and the Casas de la Música and party rooms of the cultural centers will remain closed.
Nor will the services of bars, nightclubs, cabaret and discotheques reopen; meanwhile, state and private swimming pools will begin their activities with a public limit of 30% of their capacity.
Havana maintains three events of local transmission of the virus: in the IDAL enterprise, in the municipality of Old Havana; and in the health areas of Luyanó, in Diez de Octubre, and Van Troi, in Centro Habana; in addition to 42 outbreak controls, reported the provincial director of health, Carlos Alberto Martínez.
