Home People As we are Goodbye to the nap

Goodbye to the nap

To reduce the number of people on public transport, Mendoza abandons split time and appeal to attend from 10 to 18.

As we are

 Avoid as much as possible the movement of people through the streets . That is the premise that our country's authorities seek to meet, in order to prevent the spread of  COVID-19.  But here, in Mendoza,  there is an old custom that attacks that: the split time of trade.  

Therefore,  in order to reduce the return travel of trade workers,  Mendoza  has decided to work on a regular schedule . So far, and from very distant times,  trade attended in the morning, on the schedule from 8.30 to 12.30, on average. From 12.30 or 13 it closed its doors until 16, when it reopened until 20 or 20.30 . This meant that  workers had to travel back and forth in the morning and round trip in the afternoon, making four trips , filling public transport and city streets.

 Change of custom 

With the evolution of the coronavirus, the City of Mendoza decided to make a change in the opening hours. And this means quite a milestone in the old custom of Mendoza.  From now on, and for 14 days,  a priori , trade will open its doors from 10 to 18.  Thus, workers will make only two trips per day, halving the number of people passing through the streets.

 Goodbye to the nap 

As good Mendoza, and like much of the interior of the country,  party time allowed citizens to rest their bodies and fall asleep for a few minutes, after lunch.   Nap  is sacred to us, so when people came to their homes, they had lunch before 14 and slept until 15 or 15.30. Now, with the schedule running, this isn't going anymore.  Therefore, not to be surprised if we enter into a business and, on the attention counter, is the employee asleep, leaning on his arms.  It's just that it's just a mendocino one more.
