Godínez León said that these are beaches that have only one entrance and therefore are insured and closed, such is the case of Balandra, El Tecolote and El Saltito, to name a few. He insisted, there are people, but there is no passage, in such a way that they neither enter nor leave.

He added that, like other citizens, they are invited to stay at home and since this is their temporary residence, they remain in place.
