Isla Mujeres News & Events on Facebook
Our Northern Zone remains in Orange on the state epidemiological light for Monday thru Sunday next week, June 21-27. The Governor expressed concern over the rise on the graph for Isla Mujeres (among others). Also concerning is the Northern Zone's increase in Contagion Rate from 1.02 to 1.06, and he noted that whenever this is over one, it indicates cases are rising.On the graphs, Diminucion means decrease and Aumento is increase.
YESTERDAY.....Since the beginning of this hurricane season, personnel with the municipal Department of Civil Protection have been working at cleaning the storm drains and de-silting the absorption wells, as well as monitoring the lagoons to prevent flooding. Residents are reminded to obtain information from official sources and to avoid false reports. They are encouraged to keep their yards and rooftops clean of objects that could become projectiles.
YESTERDAY...Happy World Turtle Day! There are 44 sea turtle nests being protected at the Tortugranja, containing 5,229 eggs. Since 2019 and 2020 were both very active seasons, this season is expected to be slower. Staff and volunteers monitor the eastern beaches of the island, particularly “Media Luna”, “El Hangar”, “Bachilleres” “Acapulquito” and “Invasión”.
YESTERDAY.... As of today, Isla Mujeres reported a total of 316 cases of C-19 with 35 deaths and 271 recuperated. Since last Wednesday, that's six more cases and another death, unfortunately.

after taking the noon Ultramar from Isla Mujeres on Saturday to go
shopping at Costco & other places, wearing a light colored dress,
heels and carrying a black purse. Regine Beatrix Roessler, 60, German,
also speaks English and some Spanish. Thank-you.
Update today..."All of the necessary reports and paperwork are in place, we are officially though the red tape and the government agencies are all working together and making this a top priority right now." There were rumors that she had been picked up by immigration, and it has been confirmed that is not true. They were waiting on receiving an Missing Person report from her family in Germany, which has been completed. Before that, privacy laws prevented Costco from sharing security video and information about whether her card had been used, etc. There is another woman in Cancun who was mistaken for her, and it has been confirmed that she is not Regine.
