Hotels, museums, libraries, and real estate are among the sectors allowed to resume activities from July 16

Hotels and resorts, museums, libraries, and real estate will be enabled to resume activity from July 16, as stated in Decree 2099 of 2020 signed by the President of Colombia, Iván Duque.

In this decree, the Colombian government details that the isolation extends until August 1 of this year and that it will have 44 exceptions.

The new regulations warn that national flights will continue to be suspended and only pilots will be able to be enabled (as announced this week from Bucaramanga to Cúcuta).
