Mexico's archaeological sites reopen at reduced capacity

Mexico's ancient Mayan monuments have started gradually reopening for the first time since the pandemic began.

Mayan ruins at Tulum and Coba have reopened while others including Chichen Itza will open at a later date, the Associated Press reports.

The pyramids of Teotihuacan near Mexico City reopened last week.

It is the most visited archaeological site in the country.

For all sites, capacity is capped at 30% of normal levels, and all visitors must wear masks and remain 1.5 meters apart from each other.

At Teotihuacan the daily limit is just 3,000 people per day.

According to the AP some people hoping to visit archaeological sites cited confusion over the ad-hoc opening dates of various sites while the respective attractions get the necessary health protocols in place.

Mexico has been hit hard by Covid-19 with nearly 70,000 deaths to date.
