Our Northern Zone remains in Orange for Feb. 1-7, and the Southern Zone remains in Yellow, but has gotten closer to turning Orange.


Today, Isla Mujeres continues to report a total of 258 cases with 23 deaths and 210 recovered. On the national map for 1/27, Isla Mujeres reports 193 suspicious and 160 negatives. 

 From the City (Ayuntamiento de Isla Mujeres)

The State Commission on Human Rights (CEDH), conducted a conference digitally titled "Human Rights in Public Service" to provide information and raise awareness among municipal staff. Those attending the online conference included municipal directors, city managers, heads of agencies, and other officials. Training events such as this have been scheduled since November and topics have included "Prevention of Harassment" and "Prevention of the Gender-focused Culture", among others. The municipal General Secretary said this administration is committed to respecting the human, labor and gender rights of all individuals, to continue the peaceful coexistence that exists in Isla Mujeres, and they are committed to having updates to provide more and better services to the families of the municipality.  


 Continue practicing hygiene measures

 The "Isla Mujeres Contigo/With You" campaign seeks to raise awareness about the importance of respect for girls and women and for the prevention of violence against them, by encouraging reports to 998 229 4411, 911 and 089. Women may also ask for help at the IMM (Isla Mujeres Women's Institute), where they can receive legal advice and psychological support.

Renewable energy at APIQRoo offices  LINK   

    Last year, the state Port Authority, APIQRoo installed solar panels for clean energy at their offices in each of the port areas of Isla Mujeres, Punta Sam, Cozumel, Chetumal and Puerto Morelos. The agency spent its own resources of 4,013,191.30 pesos in total. There were 152 panels installed last year at the Isla Mujeres terminal and 140 at Punta Sam. At Punta Sam they are lacking placement of the meter to activate the panels.


Taking a step backward to orange on the epidemiological light affects economic recovery: Carlos Joaquin  LINK   

   Governor Carlos JoaquĆ­n said that is why it is important to take care of people's health, save lives, and achieve balance in the reopening of productive activities with respect for protocols, preventative measures and hygiene habits. He said that COFEPRIS, SATQ, SEFIPLAN and the municipalities are carrying out verification inspections in the Northern Zone to ensure that the provisions established in the Reactivemos Quintana Roo plan are being met, which are mandatory and not optional. The Director of COFEPRIS,  (Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks in Quintana Roo, Miguel Pino Murillo, said that since December, verifications by his agency have doubled. He said that this has included all types of establishments such as clothing stores, auto parts stores, public transport, hotels, and restaurants, as well as social events and parties. 

      The COFEPRIS director said during their inspections in the Northern Zone, they have found a lot of noncompliance in pubic transport, requiring passengers to get off overcrowded vehicles, without sanitary measures and lacking face masks. At some restaurants, they found noncompliance with measures including temperature checking, use of face masks and healthy distancing. He said these operations will continue to be more strict and noncompliance can be grounds for suspension and possible fines from 200 to 2000 UMA's (a national Measurement Unit that's currently 89.62 pesos).

    The Governor explained that these reviews are intended to take care of the health of those who work in businesses, as well their clients and the tourists, to avoid a greater number of infections with application of preventative measures and habits, with respect for protocols.
