Puerto Rico is set to reopen retail businesses, beaches, and places of worship  on Tuesday, with a warning from health experts that the U.S. territory’s government is not prepared for a possible surge in new infections as it moves from a two-month lockdown.

Governor Wanda Vázquez announced Thursday that most businesses will reopen under strict new rules, including restrictions on how many people will be allowed inside restaurants.

Food truck owner Mauro Alago welcomed the reopenings, saying, “It’s a relief because people finally have green light.”  He also said he believes all businesses will be able to adapt to the new rules.
