    Road cycling events and marathons on public roads are still prohibited, the Government of the Republic reiterated on March 5th after different requests from sports organizations to endorse the performance of these activities within the framework of the national state of emergency for the novel Coronavirus, were made. The same situation occurs with, for example, amateur football, 11 matches, and triathlon competitions that include public gatherings.

    “Activities on public roads or the presence of the public at sporting and recreational events are not authorized,” said Karla Alemán Cortés from the Office of Sports and Recreation. “The sports and recreation sector must maintain the commitment to comply with the accepted principles of good conduct in the context of the Pandemic and comply with the current health protocols,” she added.

The guide in question has been processed since the previous February 18th and proposes a maximum capacity of 25%.
