La Paz: COEM confirms the implementation of Alasitas with the requirement of a vaccination card and biosecurity measures

La Paz’s Municipal Emergency Operations Committee (COEM) confirmed the holding of the Alasitas fair this Monday, but with strict biosecurity measures due to the pandemic.

The regulations stipulated that Alasita’s preference should run from January 15, and everyone must have the vaccination card during the opening of the fair on the 24th districts from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Mayor Arias pointed out that the 24th event at the exhibition center will be small and symbolic, which is why it was decided to decentralize the events on that day.

In addition, it was decided to set up “public prosecutors for life”, which means that fairground associations entrust people with the control of compliance with the biosafety regulations, such as checking the vaccination card, the use of chin straps, ventilation, cleaning the rooms and fumigating twice a day .

The strict cleaning of foodstuffs and utensils was also stipulated; Distancing and biosecurity standards; 50% capacity in food areas; Attention from only two people per position; as well as differentiated access points with unidirectional flow.

The fair manager confirmed that the vaccination card is checked by a security authority and by the showmen themselves.

He stressed that the vaccination card is required to enter the fair, but if unvaccinated people are present, they will be invited to be vaccinated at places that will be issued on site.

The implementation of the Alasita trade fair was doubtful due to the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases registered at the national level, however the representation of the exhibition grounds at the COEM meeting called for economic activity not to be paralyzed.

Economic activities

The COEM also set schedules for economic activities with and without the consumption of alcoholic beverages.

The opening times are Monday through Thursday from 6:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 5:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.

It also approved a 50% person capacity as well as the prohibition of excessive consumption of beverages and compliance with biosecurity measures.

For merchants, trade unions and transport companies it was agreed that in addition to the designation “trade union and trade union prosecutors” they issue the vaccination card as an ID that controls the vaccination and biosecurity standards, the cleaning and disinfection of mobilities, breakpoints and commercial establishments.

For sporting activities, it was recommended to develop events of this type with 50% occupancy on the stages. The community only grants community sports scenarios if 100% of the practitioners present their vaccination card.


It was also noted that in order to conduct procedures before the city administration, a vaccination card with a full scheme or negative PCR with data no longer than 48 hours is required. The same applies to participation in edile event centers.

“Crusade for Life”

Arias stressed that the meeting also approved the “crusade for life” which will start on Sunday with a house-to-house vaccination, as announced last week.
