Antioquia Acting Governor Luis Fernando Suárez announced April 18 that starting tomorrow (April 19) the Medellin metro area as well as the rest of Antioquia will continue enforcing the same, existing restrictions on movements until Monday, April 26, to help stem rising cases of Covid-19.

Under the extended scheme, quarantines and bans on liquor sales continue daily from 8 pm to 5 am from now until Thursday, April 22, then a complete lockdown (except for urgent food-supply trips) takes effect from 8 pm Thursday until 5 am Monday, April 26.

“Pico y cedula” shopping limits will apply from Monday, April 19 for people with cedulas ending in 0 and 1. Then, on Tuesday, April 20, people with cedulas ending in 2, 3 and 4 can venture-out on routine supply-runs.

On Wednesday, April 21, people with cedulas ending in 5, 6 and 7 can shop, while on Thursday, April 22, people with cedulas ending in 8 and 9 can shop.

On Friday April 23 and Sunday April 25, people with cedulas ending in odd numbers can make urgent supply runs (only basic foods and medicines), while those with cedulas ending in even numbers can venture-out on Saturday, April 24 for urgent food supplies.

Medellin and Antioquia continue to suffer from an overwhelming number of cases of Covid-19, which explains the continuing restrictions, Gov. Suárez added.
