EVENT: Previous Curfew Update for Cortés and El Progreso, Yoro NULLIFIED
Earlier today, we advised the National Police announced the daily opening of banks, supermarkets, pharmacies, and gas stations in Cortés and El Progreso, Yoro.
However, shortly after, we received confirmation that this order was nullified until further notice.
Banks, supermarkets, pharmacies and gas stations in those areas will NOT be open. Please disregard our previous message.
All U.S. citizens are strongly encouraged to respect the curfew and minimize trips out of the home.
