Although the district of Nosara is on a yellow alert, in recent days the virus infections have increased considerably.

According to the district data offered by the Ministry of Health, published this monday, the Nosara district presents seven  active cases of Covid-19, for a total of nine accumulated cases.

The central district of Nicoya has 18 active cases. In total, the Nicoyan canton reports 123 accumulated cases of the virus.

The Nosara Civic Association encourages all businesses to take extreme preventive measures in their establishments, since otherwise, the district could return to an orange alert with additional restrictions for economic activities.

Just today, the country reported 619 new cases of the virus, for a total of 29,084 confirmed cases.

That is why we want to share the advisory published by Nosara Paradise Medical for businesses to ask their clients these questions, since we are receiving visits from many tourists from the Greater Metropolitan Area.

According to the medical center, each time you receive a new client or customer, you must ask these questions:

Have you had any of the following symptoms in the last 14 days?

*Fever greater than 38 degrees Celsius

*Cough

*Sore throat

*Difficulty breathing

*Loss of smell or taste

*Muscle pain

Have you traveled in the last 14 days inside or outside the country?

Have you been in contact with any suspected or confirmed Covid-19 person in the last 14 days?

In case the client answers positively in some of the questions, the business must contact the Health authorities. In addition, you must protect the privacy of the patient.

Science and health organizations are unanimous in an easy, common sense approach to prevention–wear a mask when you’re around other people, stay physically and socially distant, create bubbles with a few other people you know and trust, wash your hands, stay away from others if you’re sick.

For today 10  deaths were reported. In total, Costa Rica has 304 deaths related to Covid-19: 113 women and 191 men, with an age range of 21 to 100 years.
