Isla Mujeres News & Events on Facebook
Today the municipality of Isla Mujeres continues to report 194 positives with 13 deaths and 140 recovered.
For 9/24, the state geoportal reports 18 active cases by colonia as: La Gloria-8, Salina Chica-3, Salina Grande-3, Ampl la Gloria-2, Aeropuerto-1, El Canotal-1, and none on the mainland.
On the national map for 9/24, the municipality reports 3 suspicious and 83 negatives (and 194 confirmed with 13 deaths).
Last night, the Governor explained that to go to the Green status on
the Epidemiological Light, the Risk of Contagion must decrease from the
current 0.84 to less than 0.5. The other factor is Hospital
Availability, which is already in Green. He expressed concern that the
Risk of Contagion is increasing in both zones, which must stay below 1
to avoid a return to Orange.
He said this is in everyone's hands and emphasized the importance of respecting preventative hygiene measures (which he listed repeatedly) and of avoiding gatherings at home, which can result in contagion and death. He said the government plans to increase the young "Yellow Hat" volunteers, increase the programs in the colonias identifying areas with more active cases, increase the 'sanitary filters' (checkpoints) at the entrances and departures (of towns) and in the streets, and increase the signage in areas of increased contact. He explained that we are living with the virus and now is the time to be three times more careful because the risk is worse with more people in the streets & more mobility & more tourists.
The Yellow light is for recuperation of income and jobs, not your social life. Maintain social distance, save your life.
Anti-Rabies Vaccination Campaign this week. Today is the last day and they will be in colonia Guadalupana from 9a to 1p.
Reforestation in the Continental Zone of the municipality of Isla Mujeres
The street medians of Isla Mujeres, both on the island and in the Continental Zone, have been embellished with native plants such as Chit palms and coconut palms, which are environmentally friendly and maintain the good urban image of the municipality. So far, more than 800 plants of various species have been planted in various areas. On the island, this includes the central medians of Rueda Medina Avenue downtown, Paseo de las Aves Avenue and Isla Contoy Avenue in colonia La Gloria, among others. Informational signs have been installed on the medians to promote care of the environment and keeping our municipality clean.

They assisted the people and transferred them and their vehicle to the Naval dock, were they were met by personnel with the Harbor Master for the corresponding procedures. It is noted that the two men were in good health and did not require any medical attention and left on their own.
