I'm sure many of you receive this...


Health Alert – U.S. Embassy Mexico City, Mexico (June 18, 2020)

Location: Mexico

Event: Mexico COVID-19 Update (June 18, 2020)

The number of confirmed and suspected cases is still increasing daily in several regions of Mexico. Mexico City, Mexico State, Puebla, Tabasco, and Jalisco currently report the highest number of confirmed active cases for the preceding two-week period. Hospital occupancy rates are also increasing, with the highest levels in Mexico City, Mexico State, Guerrero, Sonora, and Morelos. Mexican health authorities have reiterated calls for people to stay home during this time.

On April 16, the Mexican government extended nationwide restrictions on non-essential economic activities in most municipalities until May 30. On June 1, the Mexican government began phasing in non-essential economic activities in some states and municipalities using a national “stoplight” system. The four metrics to determine the colors in the Mexican government’s stoplight system are the trend in numbers of new cases; hospital occupancy trends; current hospital occupancy rates; and percentage of positive cases. The Mexican government updates the state-level designations every Friday, and the revisions will take effect the following Monday.

Sixteen of Mexico’s states are designated “red” under the federal system from June 15 to June 21 (Baja California, Chiapas, Mexico City, Colima, Mexico State, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Morelos, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Puebla, Queretaro, Sinaloa, Sonora, Tlaxcala, and Veracruz). Under red, only essential activities are allowed. Essential activities include: the provision of medical services and supplies, grocery delivery services, operation of grocery stores, restaurant delivery and carryout services, assurance of public safety, maintenance of fundamental economic functions and government social programs, work in critical infrastructure, construction, and manufacturing of transportation equipment. Hotels are limited to 25 percent occupancy for guests working on critical activities. Parks are also limited to 25 percent occupancy. Schools in Mexico are closed.

Sixteen of Mexico’s states are designated “orange” under the federal system from June 15 to June 21 (Aguascalientes, Baja California Sur, Campeche, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Guanajuato, Jalisco, Michoacán, Nuevo León, Quintana Roo, San Luis Potosí, Tabasco, Tamaulipas, Yucatán, and Zacatecas). Under orange, hotels, restaurants, barbershops, open-air parks, and gyms are limited to 50 percent capacity. Markets and supermarkets will operate at 75 percent capacity. Additionally, shopping malls, churches, cinemas, theaters, museums, and cultural events will be limited to 25 percent capacity.

Some states and municipalities have implemented additional restrictions on public gatherings, transportation, business operations, and government operations if health conditions warrant and/or developed separate stoplight systems from those at the federal level. Several states and municipalities have imposed curfews and movement restrictions on non-essential activities and have required citizens to wear masks when outside their homes. In some areas, officials may issue fines and/or arrest and detain individuals found to be in violation of stay at home orders. Please see additional information on these restrictions and links to state COVID-19 websites in the “Local Resources” section on our website. This information is not comprehensive and is subject to change without notice. Please confirm directly with local government and other trusted sources for more information on closures and restrictions in different Mexican states and municipalities.

International commercial flight options currently exist in Mexico, but flights to the United States have been cut by nearly 80 percent since January. U.S. citizens who wish to return to the United States should make commercial arrangements as soon as possible unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. The U.S. government does not anticipate arranging repatriation flights from Mexico to the United States at this time.

The United States and Mexico entered a joint initiative March 21 restricting non-essential travel along the U.S.-Mexico land border to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Non-essential travel includes travel that is considered tourism or recreational in nature. These restrictions apply to travel in both directions across the border. On June 16, the U.S. and Mexican governments extended the land border travel restrictions until July 21. Please see the DHS website or embassy fact sheet for more information.

Passengers and aircrew members arriving at and departing from Mexican airports may be subject to health screenings, including temperature checks. Those exhibiting symptoms may be subject to additional health screenings and/or asked to quarantine voluntarily. Travelers entering Mexico by land from the United States may be denied admission if the purpose of their visit is considered non-essential. We recommend that travelers carry evidence of the essential nature of their visit and evidence of their resident status in Mexico, if applicable. Travelers entering Mexico via land may be subject to temperature checks and additional health screening. Travelers may experience significant delays and face the possibility of being returned to the United States or asked to quarantine in Mexico. At some U.S. ports of entry, operating hours have changed; please review CBP’s Port of Entry wait times web page for additional information.

On April 3, Mexican Tourism and Health officials instructed all accommodation services, including hotels, hostels, online platforms, and travel agencies, to cancel new and existing reservations and close for non-essential business. As of June 1, the availability of hotel rooms and other commercial lodging, limitations on the number of guests within a hotel, and requirements for guests to be engaged in essential business or transit will vary depending on the state’s stoplight color designation and local restrictions. Individuals showing respiratory symptoms will be referred to health authorities. As a reminder, the U.S. government does not pay for lodging or other expenses incurred due to travel disruptions abroad.

The Department of State issued a Global Level 4 Health Advisory for COVID-19 on March 19.

Well, thanks, but I find the U.S. giving warnings about Covid 19 in Mexico to be monumentally amusing when they have a far worse problem at home.

The Covid 19 situation in the U.S.
It's on the leaderboard with the worst number of confirmed cases, the highest number of deaths and a president with no brains.

Not to mention that the White House has seized control of many statistics coming out of the CDC. (after Anthony Fauci outranked him in public trust 2 X 1).

All children have small hands and small minds. Some grow out of it, some don't.

There are no good stats. They're not testing people until they present at a facility at death's door. The rest of the cases walk among us, serve us food, read our meters, deliver us produce, and accept our utility bills. Etc.

Is everyone aware that both Jose and Isabel, owners Jose's restaurant on the plaza in Chapala, are both fighting for their lives? She is ventilated and Rony says she got the last COVID bed at Civil. Jose is being cared for by his son. Lovely people, great restaurant, and I fervently hope they pull through.

Maryanne Carlson is calling for anyone who has eaten there since the restaurant reopened in compliance to self-isolate for 14 days.
