The government has determined that the state is in the green on the national stoplight system. Various measures are being enforced by the local government and health authorities. State and municipal law enforcement authorities will use their powers to verify compliance with health measures. Those who are knowingly infected will be fined if they do not comply with social distancing and home isolation measures. The use of face masks in public is now mandatory. Vehicle movement will be limited to essential activities and only two people are allowed per vehicle, except for minors who need to be cared for by a family member. Those who are commuting for non-essential reasons will be warned by law enforcement authorities and recorded in a database. Re-offenders are subject to the maximum penalties. Taxis can only transport a maximum of two passengers in the back seat. Health and law enforcement authorities can carry out operations against crowds who are not following social distancing measures. Public or private event organizers that violate health regulations will also be subject to administrative penalties. Checkpoints will be established at every state entry point. Emergency vehicles will be prioritized on roads. Officials may issue fines and/or arrest and detain individuals found to be in violation of stay-at-home orders.
