 NHC--A tropical wave is forecast to move over the central Caribbean Sea, where an area of low pressure could form in a couple of days. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conductive for development, and a Tropical Depression could form late this week or over the weekend while the system moves slowly westward. Formation chance through 5 days is medium-50%.


 Tropical Storm Eta is now 210 mi N-NE of the western tip of Cuba, moving SW at 14 mph, away from Florida. Parts of Cuba are under Tropical Storm Watches. Eta is expected to slow & to turn northward this week.

 Today Isla Mujeres reports 223 positives with 20 deaths and 187 recovered.
The state geoportal continues to show one active case by colonia in Salina Chica. The Incidence rates for all the municipalities are unchanged since 10/30, indicating they haven't been updated.
On the national map for 10/8, Isla Mujeres reports 149 suspicious and 109 negatives.
The graphs show the Growth Rate of C-19 cases in our Northern Zone, which includes six other municipalities. Our Zone has been in Yellow since Sept. 7th on the state epidemiological light. The second graphic shows that period, because it's hard to read on the first graphic.

 La Tertulia 

Tertulia reports they have received pictures demonstrating a lack of awareness by visitors who are not wearing face masks, and who are introducing alcoholic beverages and food to public beaches, which are part of the health protocols that the three levels of government consistently recommend to prevent a rebound of Covid-19.
Isla Mujeres inhabitants want the "Yellow Caps" group, which was created to raise awareness about the correct use of face masks, to pay more attention to the tourism sector who seem to act as if the pandemic is over, when in reality, Isla Mujeres is still in the Yellow light, where shops and activities are supposedly only allowed in a controlled manner and in compliance with health rules.
Complainants claim that the restrictions about access to the beaches were only taken seriously for the first few days, and then both visitors and some island families flocked there with alcoholic beverages, food and even without face masks, as if it were normal times, putting this destination at risk for a Covid-19 rebound and that's something that no one wants or desires.(photos)

Turtles continue hatching out at the Tortugranja in November

The mamas nest along the eastern beaches from May thru October. Tortugranja staff and volunteers gather the eggs and incubate them in the sand in a pen outside the facility. Three species nest annually in Isla Mujeres, Greens, Loggerheads, and Hawksbills.  Photos of nest hatching out at MaraVilla Caribe Bed & Beach, that was missed by the Tortugranja patrols, by Bruce.
