Isla Mujeres History on Facebook & Website 
The municipal Department of Ecology and the Environment is conducting a door-to-door campaign to raise awareness among pet owners about respecting the Animal Welfare Regulations and working together to maintain a good image of the municipality. They are handing out copies of the municipal regulations
Article #13 prohibits throwing animals, alive or dead, into the public roads/sidewalks or abandoning them, or allowing them to get loose in the public roads due to negligence.
Article #15 says when a pet is taken for a walk along the public roads, it needs to be on a leash with a collar or harness.
Article #32 says you should prevent your dogs from defecating in public spaces, and in all cases the person walking the dog should have a bag or wrapper to pick up any feces, which should be properly disposed of in a trash receptacle. The owners and walkers are responsible for their animals and failure to comply can result in being sanctioned.

#1- The state government's new "Semáforo" rules were announced on Friday, allowing larger capacities. Q Roo begins Orange (Naranja) status on Monday, when capacities for the listed touristic businesses will be 70%. This includes restaurants, marinas, nautical activities, hotels, tourist transportation, water parks, theme parks, beaches, museums & historical sites, and operators & guides for adventure tours, diving, etc. (Cuartos=rooms, Mesas=tables, Asientos=seats, Aforo=capacity, Empleados=employees).
#2- Bars, nightclubs, cantinas etc are limited to 60% capacity in Orange. (Sana distancia=healthy distance, espacios abiertos/cerrados=open/closed spaces).
#3- The Lethality of Covid-19 in Quintana Roo, which dropped from 13.05% in 2020 to 0.32% this month. The state Secretary of Health attributed this to the state's high rate of vaccination, which is over 90%, and to improved treatments.
#4-Hospital Occupancy in Q Roo throughout the pandemic. She said the vast majority of C-19 cases are 'ambulatory', and quarantining at home.
The state has begun collecting daily C-19 reports from hotels and the Secretary of Health said there are currently 326 tourists who've tested positive (as of Friday's press conference). She emphasized the importance of continuing to follow protocols like wearing masks correctly, avoiding crowds, good ventilation, frequent hand washing & using gel, and healthy distancing. The Color status is announced on Thursday nights for the following Monday-Sunday and we're in Orange for Jan 24-30.
#5- Q Roo is also moving from Yellow to Orange on the National Semáforo for Jan 24-Feb. 6.
