On December 16, under all the sanitary measures determined by the Chilean authorities, we bid farewell to 2020 in grand style. Following the tradition of other years, all personnel stayed with their families at the Hotel, this time we chose the AC Costanera Center, which recently opened, luxurious and close to our offices, and we started with the celebration. We started by going up to Sky Costanera, a unique space in Latin America, where it was possible to enjoy the Andes Mountains and Santiago de Chile from a completely new perspective on floors 61 and 62 of the Great Costanera Tower (253 m and 261 m high on the surface of the city, respectively), which allows a 360° view from the viewpoint of the building.
Then we went to the Santiago Luna Bar, located on the 17th floor of the AC Costanera Center Hotel, which offers one of the terraces with the best views of the city. There we had a toast for having managed to reach the end of this unusual and challenging year.
The next day we had breakfast at the AC Costanera Hotel and took the opportunity to take a photo of the team in honor of Andersen Global on the terrace of the 17th floor.
These are some photos of our celebration under all sanitary measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On December 11, the member firms and in collaboration with Andersen Global held the webinar “Benefits and Challenges of the Pacific Alliance”.
In that opportunity, Juan Ignacio Santa María, Of Counsel of our Law Firm, presented the information related to Chile, answering to the questions of the attendees about the benefits and contributions that the country offers for being part of the block.
The full webinar can be reviewed at the following link and if you are interested in knowing more information on the subject, contact us through the e-mail email@example.com.
Santiago, December 7, 2020.
Faced with the increase in infections by COVID-19, the Ministry of Health has announced that starting at 05:00 hours on Thursday, December 10, all the municipalities of the Metropolitan Region will regress to Phase 2 of the Transition of the Plan Step by Step.
With this measure, the affected communes will be in quarantine on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, days when it is only possible to go out to carry out specific procedures by requesting an individual permit on the Virtual Commissioner website, for which only one permit will be available per week.
With this regression to Phase 2 – Transition, it is important to consider, among other aspects, the following:
- Non-essential commerce may only operate from Monday to Friday and must close its doors on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
- You will not be able to go to work in quarantined places unless it is an essential service and you obtain a collective travel permit or a single collective permit.
- Interregional travel will not be allowed, nor will transfers to unusual residences.
- Restaurants may only open their terraces, in open places, with a distance of at least 2 meters at the tables and a maximum stay of two hours.
- Schools that already have face-to-face classes will not be affected by the setback.
- The meeting plan for Christmas and New Years’ remains unchanged for now.
Along with the 52 communes of the Metropolitan Region, the commune of Renaico, La Araucanía Region, also recedes to Phase 2. On the other hand, the following communes recede to Phase 1 of Quarantine: Arauco, Bío Bío Region; Los Sauces and Angol, Region of La Araucanía and; Puerto Williams, Magallanes Region. The communes not mentioned are kept in the current phase. To consult the situation of a specific commune, you can access the following link.
