 Yesterday's report was's the graphic that my computer wasn't downloading last evening.

The daily report for Isla Mujeres remains unchanged at 223 cases with 20 deaths & 188 recovered. The Geoportal hasn't been updated since the 14th and still shows one active case in Salina Chica. On the national map for 11/15, the municipality reports 149 suspicious and 114 negatives.

Our Northern Zone remains in Yellow this week, which we share with six other municipalities. The second graph pf the Growth Rate of Cases shows the last few months separately because they're hard to read on the first graph. Note we're at an all-time low. It was Sept. 7 when the Northern Zone moved to Yellow, and has remained there. That was when the public beaches opened and capacities increased from 30% to 60% at businesses.

     With a commitment to contribute to public health care and to continuing to boost the local economy, the government of Isla Mujeres headed by Mayor Juan Carrillo Soberanis continues to implement health protocols for the entry of the beaches a both North Beach and Playa Centro.

Kerem Pinto Aguilar, Director of  ZOFEMAT (the Federal Zone agency) explained how the government works to contain the spread of the disease with the implementation of regulations for entry to the beaches, as well as maintaining a sanitunel in the main entrance to the island (the ferry terminal).

′′We want to advance to the green color of the state epidemiological light, but the only way to do so is to continue to implement and comply with sanitary measures so that we can also recover the flow of our local economy," the official said.

 She added that various different departments work in coordination monitoring that these protocols are met to help contain the spread of Covid.

In addition, the ZOFEMAT staff is working daily to maintain these spaces in optimal conditions, which are the main attraction for national and international visitors, as you could see this weekend.


 The municipal government is participating in a new state program "Plan Without Violence at Home" /“Plan sin Violencia en Casa”/ It is a state plan that encompasses prevention actions, in a joint work with municipalities to prevent acts of violence within families and to analyze during this pandemic, all social problems, and also mental health in families;  psychosocial problems. Actions are being taken within the colonias in which members of families participate, to work on proposals and solutions for improvements in the short, medium and long term, strengthening family ties and culture of non-violence towards the children, adolescents and women of the municipality.

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.
