To prevent supermarkets and shops from becoming congested with a major influx of people during the national Colombia quarantine, all municipalities in the Aburrá Valley have implemented Pico y Cedula, which restricts shopping days during the quarantine based on the last digit of your ID.

The Pico y Cedula restriction applies for going to grocery shops, malls, small tiendas, pharmacies and also includes banking and notary services. These restrictions started on March 25 during the national Colombia quarantine. In Medellín and the Aburrá Valley, you are limited in the days and hours you can shop and use banks based on the last digit of your ID (cedula or passport).

Also, the Pico y Cedula restriction applies for using the Medellín Metro. Starting in April, police at metro stations are now checking IDs as you enter the stations. Unless you have proof of a valid activity under the national quarantine, you are limited in the days you can use the metro based on the last digit of your ID (cedula or passport).

According to the Antioquia Governor, each municipality in Antioquia has autonomy to make the decision to impose its own rules. So, these rules do not necessarily apply to all municipalities in Antioquia and municipalities can have different schedules.

Note that Pico y Cedula is different than Pico y Placa used to address traffic during rush hour. Pico y Cedula is when the last digit of your ID indicates you CAN go out shopping. Under Pico y Placa you are restricted from driving in Medellín during the rush hours based the last digit on a license plate for cars or first digit for motorcycles. Pico y Placa is when you CANNOT drive.

EDITOR NOTE: the last day of Pico y Cedula in Medellín and the Aburrá Vally is on August 30. Starting on August 31 there is not more Pico y Cedula in the Aburrá Valley.

EDITOR NOTE: A new Pico y Cedula schedule was published on August 15 by the Área Metropolitana del Valle de Aburrá that includes an updated schedule until August 30 that is defined in the following graphic:

Medellin Guru’s Coronavirus Series

Medellin Guru has a series of articles about the coronavirus pandemic and the impacts in Colombia: Also, these articles are being kept up-to-date, as this is a fast-moving topic:

The Bottom Line: Pico y Cedula: A Restriction for Grocery Shopping in Aburrá Valley

During the national Colombia quarantine, the ability for one person per family to go grocery shopping and go to pharmacies and banks are permitted activities.

However, all municipalities in the Aburrá Valley, Antioquia with Pico and Cedula are now limiting this activity in the stores, malls and banks in their jurisdictions to certain days and hours based on the last digit of your ID (cedula or passport). Also, the Medellin Metro system is using the Pico and Cedula system.

Find out the days you are permitted to shop in our article above and plan accordingly. We recommend staying at home as much as possible during the quarantine and stay safe.

Also, don’t forget you can order domicilio (home delivery). Pretty much all pharmacies and most supermarkets have delivery services. So, you can order any day of the week for home delivery.

Furthermore, see our guide to grocery shopping in Medellín with tips to save money. In addition, we will keep this article up-to-date if we find out other municipalities in Antioquia that have added Pico y Cedula.
