Health Alert – U.S. Embassy Mexico City, Mexico (October 22, 2020)
Location: Mexico
Event: Mexico COVID-19 Update (October 22, 2020)
The number of confirmed and suspected COVID-19 cases reached its peak nationwide by mid-July and began a decrease that continued for nine weeks. This decline stopped by the second week of September and has plateaued or increased slightly ever since. In many states, there has been a considerable increase in the number of cases as well as of hospitalizations. Mexico City, Nuevo Leon, Mexico State, Guanajuato, and Jalisco report the highest number of active cases for the preceding two-week period as of October 20. The states reporting the highest rates of hospital occupancy are Chihuahua, Nuevo Leon, Durango, Nayarit, and Mexico City as of October 17. Mexican health authorities have reiterated calls for people to stay home as much as possible and leave home only for work and essential activities according to the color assigned to each state under the national stoplight system, always following social distance measures, frequent hand hygiene, and mask-wearing. Schools remained closed in nearly all states.
The national stoplight system introduced on June 1 allows for a gradual phase-in of additional economic activities in states and municipalities. The four metrics to determine the four colors that indicate risk level from maximum to minimum (Red, Orange, Yellow, and Green) are the trend in numbers of new cases, hospital occupancy trends, current hospital occupancy rates, and the percentage of positive cases.
Seventeen states are designated “orange” under the federal system between October 12 and 25 (Aguascalientes, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Colima, Durango, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Mexico City, México State, Nayarit, Nuevo León, Oaxaca, Querétaro, Sinaloa, 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.
Fourteen states are designated “yellow” under the federal stoplight system between October 12 and 25 (Baja California, Baja California Sur, Chiapas, Guanajuato, Michoacán, Morelos, Puebla, Quintana Roo, Sonora, San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Tabasco, and Veracruz). Under yellow, all work activities are permitted. Public space may open on a regular basis, while enclosed public spaces can open with reduced capacity. All activities should be carried out with basic prevention measures. People at higher risk of developing COVID-19 symptoms should continue to take extra precautions.
One state is designated “green” under the federal stoplight system between October 12 and 25 (Campeche). Under green, all economic and social activities, including school, are permitted while taking appropriate precautions.
Some states and municipalities have implemented additional restrictions on public gatherings, transportation, business operations, and government operations if health conditions warrant and have 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 arrest and detain individuals found to violate 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 the 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 at a reduced capacity. The number of available flight options is increasing gradually. U.S. citizens who wish to return to the United States should make commercial arrangements.
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 tourism and recreational travel. These restrictions apply to travel in both directions across the border. On October 19, the U.S. and Mexican governments extended the land border travel restrictions until November 21. Mexican border and local authorities are conducting enforcement actions to discourage non-essential travel in some areas. 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.
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 Level 3 Health Advisory for Mexico on September 8, advising U.S. citizens to reconsider travel to Mexico due to COVID-19, and to exercise increased caution in Mexico due to crime and kidnapping. Some areas have increased risk – read the entire Travel Advisory. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Mexico, as travel by U.S. government employees to certain areas is prohibited or significantly restricted. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for Mexico due to COVID-19 on August 6.

here was last sunday, probably the most people I have seen from LaPaz in the area in September. In the past there could be about 10-20 groups in the campground and some groups in the 20 person range during the summer. But rarely this late in the season, but beaches were closed so people making up for it.

I have seen Gates's 747ish jet parked at LaPaz airport before, ( I asked the employes whos plane it was parked off to the side) was wondering why it was there. I think this answers that question. It is unmarked other than the numbers on it but looks brand spanking new.


https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/why-la-paz-is-mexicos-attractive-celebrity-destination-1249596?fbclid=IwAR1Qp4WYSrOjcLvqYSBOxUsTJ15m7r9syq0oqVXUcQCOCpBtXuDhv9337Oc

Where Steven Spielberg and Bill Gates Travel to Relax With Their Superyachts
8:00 AM PDT 10/25/2019 by Alexandria Abramian


La Paz is evolving into Mexico’s under-the-radar hideaway for the world’s seafaring billionaires.
Cabo may have the glitz and glamour, but La Paz is evolving into Mexico’s under-the-radar hideaway for the world’s seafaring billionaires. Located 110 miles from Los Cabos International Airport, the beach city does not boast a single five-star hotel, luxury fashion boutique or celebrity chef restaurant. Instead, it’s La Paz’s access to the Sea of Cortez, the UNESCO-protected waters referred to as "the aquarium of the world" by Jacques Cousteau, that is luring some of the world’s largest superyachts.

Their destination? Puerta Cortes, a gated, 500+ acre resort five miles from downtown La Paz where ocean-view rooms start at $130 (compared to Cabo, where rooms at luxury hotels average more than $1,000 per night during the same period). Despite the lack of 800-thread count bedding and a Pilates studio, Puerta Cortes boasts something no Cabo property can: 70 marina slips that can accommodate yachts up to 280 feet.



That may not be big enough for Steven Spielberg’s 282-foot Seven Seas, which routinely anchors just past the dock on the bay, as did David Geffen’s yacht on New Year’s Eve. Larry Ellison, Bill and Melinda Gates and billionaire Dennis Washington all dock or anchor at the resort. The draw? Once-in-a-lifetime access to marine life, beyond-blue waters and a scene-free assortment restaurants, shops and activities.

"This is the kind of place where Bill and Melinda Gates can walk down the Malecon [the three-mile beachfront walkway in downtown La Paz] without anyone bothering them," says Jeffrey Curtiss, an English ex-pat who moved to the area full time in 2005. "Unlike the eternal spring break feeling at Cabo, the wealthy don’t feel threatened here and can be close to wildlife."  

They don’t just want to see marine life, they also want to protect it. Last year, Leonardo DiCaprio produced Sea of Shadows about the Sea of Cortez' most endangered marine mammal, a small porpoise known as the vaquita marina. Christy Walton, widow of John T. Walton (son of Walmart and Sam’s Club founder Sam Walton), owns a home in La Paz and dedicates herself to both land and maritime environmental initiatives.  


While the Spielbergs can be seen relaxing in Puerta Cortes’ zero-frills, ocean-view jacuzzi and the Gates play tennis on the property’s lone tennis court unnoticed, that kind of laid-back atmosphere may soon change: Two five-star hotels are slated to start construction within Puerta Cortes next year, along with branded residences that "will offer a rare investment opportunity as well as a lifestyle offering that will be unlike any other home in La Paz or Baja to date," says Antonio Davila, president of Puerta Cortes.

Earlier this year, Beverly Hills-based real estate brokerage The Agency opened offices in the city, as the area braces itself for a new breed of homebuyer. "This is the last point in La Paz where you can own a house or build a house at the entry of the Sea of Cortez," says Davila. "Forty percent of the world’s marine life lives here. That’s a lot of species to find."

new tax on bcs tourism.   USD$18, and about 2.4 to 3.5 million visitors per year.  starts at cabo airport.

the below website opens the 9th of Nov.  

https://www.travelerfundbcs.gob.mx/


facebook wrote:A new tax of 350 pesos will be applied to each foreigner who arrives at the international airports of Baja California Sur from November 9th.

This announcement was made by Governor Carlos Mendoza Davis today to the local press, as Baja California Sur is the first state in all of Mexico to charge a similar tax related to tourism.

The funds obtained by this tax will be applied to infrastructure works throughout the state, mainly highways, streets, public safety, health and education.

Los Cabos Internacional airport will be the first to apply this tax. If you want to know more, visit the website:

this season is mosquito year. optimum timed spacing of rains this summer have been ideal for mosquito breeding.

It is not the one I usually buy, but the same ingredient s the one I use to buy.   just a higher concentration.    about 6 years ago i bought a bunch of different ones because Santiago is allergic to deet.   tested them and only the geranium oil ones worked.

about 1-2 inches of rain no arroyo flooding here in town and no errosion on my property so far.   power went out at 4am and came back on at 11:30am.

It was just brought to my attention about the power. Whenever you see a downed pole or line even if not ours it makes CFEs job easy to fix power outages. There is no magic way they know where the problem is, and right now while there are emergencies in other towns thay are not going to send 10 trucks to look. But if as in the case where I called because my neighbors line was taken down they know where to show up. And sending one truck is doable.

so if everyone can take a quick look in your hood.


Another interesting thing I noticed while at the main power transformer.

    This morning I was wondering why I had city water pressure when the town power was off.       I was not paying close attention as was inspecting for faults, so will need to check.  But appeared to me they did something since I was last checking on their work that is very good.    They put in a line before the shutoff that they control from LaPaz that shoots of to the area where the water well is outside of town.    

the reason for doing this is when they are doing their rolling blackouts it would not shut off one of our towns water pumps.     When power is resumed they have to manually turn it on so this would also help in cases like this were somewhere in town there is a problem it would allow at least the one water pump to remain on.    

Again i did not verify that I had city water pressure when the power was off as that was not a concern, but there is a huge difference in pressure when I am just using gravity feed vs city pressure and i did notice in the back of my mind.   But i knew before when the electric went down so did the well pump till they restart it that usually took 3-12 hours, up to 24 hours ifa sunday or holiday.

Cuba announced this Wednesday that it will apply fines and even prison sentences to those who break basic rules to prevent the spread of contagious diseases, at a time when there is an increase in the number of dengue cases on the island.

so far a dusting of rain, heavily overcast

note there is more road construction on the road to LaPaz, this one is in a narrow area that only two lanes can fit so they have a flagger there. Best is go early and come back late. In the past when this narrow work area is done they do it very quickly. It is only about 1 km. then there is another 1-2 km they have been working on for a week or two that they have diversions for off the side of the road. also noting this is the first curve area from LaPaz to LV going up the mountain, the part that was in the worst shape. So the three sections they are working on are really the last three (there may be one other section not so good still to be done) , these three that were potholed after pothole after filled in former potholed.

note this is google translate

this is an increase of 2 cases over last month. and remember we were hit locally by more rains than LaPaz, so our mosquito population is high, so do bring down repellent.

The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) will improve electricity generation capacity in Baja California Sur after the state was hit by a series of blackouts due to low capacity earlier this year.
CFE operations director Carlos Andrés Morales Mar announced the plan at an event with Governor Carlos Mendoza Davis.
Morales said that electricity distribution problems in Baja California Sur have been caused by poor maintenance of the state’s generation plants. By October, the CFE will restore 42 megawatts of generation capacity that are currently out of service.
Morales also said that a natural gas power plant being built in Pichilingue will be equipped with energy-saving technology including heat recuperators, and will have a capacity of 170 megawatts when it goes into operation.
By the summer of 2021, another four new generators will be operating, he said. “That will mean the production of 170 megawatts, which will relieve the pressure on the electricity system.”
In total, Morales said that Baja California Sur will have an additional 472 megawatts of generation capacity by the end of 2022.
Governor Mendoza said that Baja California Sur’s current generation capacity should be close to 750 megawatts, while peak consumption is around 550 megawatts. However, due to poor maintenance of generating facilities, capacity is sometimes actually closer to 550 megawatts, forcing the CFE to cut service at peak consumption times.
“In 2020, we will have an additional 280 megawatts, which will make it less likely for us to face this kind of circumstance,” said Mendoza.
The lights went out in Baja California Sur cities at least three times over the summer.

make sure you stock up on bug repellant before coming down. the rains have been spaced perfectly for a major outbreak. Especially if they continue...

yesterday we received about 1-2 inches of rain in an hour. It was a single cloud that moved slowly so the arroyo did run into the sea for a bit. Caused rutting on my property. There may be places that received much more than this. 0

this was not a result of a hurricane nearby.

water temp issues of the sea,

to me the water is cooler than I ever remember for a summer. even right now at peak, when i get in some days it feels cool. That is why I believe the hurricanes have not come close to us this year, they all shot out to the way west.

also this is the only year I can remember that I have not seen one portuguese-man-of-war floating around, not one and not stung by one and i swim almost every other day. And this is the first year I have been swimming much of the time without a shirt for protection.

This season was the least number of fish boils I have ever seen, they are so rare that I have only seen a handful total all summer. I have only seen about 3 sting rays and that was a long time ago in the spring.

Air temperature seems about the same to me on my property, about 88-92 everyday, but I do note I believe the afternoon breeze is 30-50% stronger. Humidity was again high all summer. Very few days of low humidity.

10 day old article saying they will have new natural gas generation plants up and running in lapaz and cabo to handle the peak demand.    This is google translate so it may not be natural gas  could be propane.

https://www.bcsnoticias.mx/en-15-dias-ya-no-habra-apagones-en-bcs-se-construiran-2-nuevas-plantas-dice-cfe-a-gobernador/

In 15 days there will be no blackouts in BCS; 2 new plants will be built, says CFE to Governor

“The director committed: Regularize the supply by remedying maintenance lags within 2 weeks. Build 2 additional plants that will be added to the natural gas plant that is being developed by tender the Government of Baja California Sur in Pichilingue ”, the Head of the State Executive shared.


also get ready for road construction downtown LaPaz starting october.

well we got a little rain from Ivo today, not directly from Ivo but peripheral,  maybe 1/8 to 1/4 in some places.   the mountains probably much more.    stopped about 30 minutes ago and it is 11am.   still threatening looking as i can not see the island or the mountains due to cloud cover/fog.    this rain came from the south with light wind.  

yesterday the mountains to the west had a thick patch of dark clouds covering the top, so probably a gentle rain for many hours. and had some 35 mph wind for an hour with some gusts to 45. not directly from Ivo, just a trailing wind from a storm from the mainland.

rain today gentle   started about noonish this morning was not humid at all. just stopped 1pm ish, but looks like more could come.

the sea of Cortez seems cold to me about 80-82 for this time of the year so could get lucky and no hurricanes come directly at us if they start up.
