It says--False Announcement. This statement is from the municipal Director of ZOFEMAT (Federal Zone agency), Kerem Pinto Aquilar (my translation):
     "(In advance I want to congratulate all those people who are aware and do not support this type of actions) # Let's adopt positive things --# Don't bring problems)
     The health contingency took us all by surprise, nobody is to blame that this is happening, however the municipal government had done, and continues to do, a good job to protect our Island.
     The state epidemiological traffic light indicates that the beaches will be open when we are in yellow.
     This can cause controversy and annoyance for many, but all these actions are to protect each one of us; let's be responsible and understanding.
      Many will say that the sea is not contagious, "que si esto que si lo otro", etc, but the reason why the beaches are closed is because they can become high risk areas for infections and they want to avoid this situation. (Agglomerations)
     Let's not spoil all the work and care of several months in a beach afternoon, and then instead of moving forward, we go back to the color red.
     It's better to take care of ourselves, do not fall into this type of thing, be responsible, you take care of yourself and we all take care of ourselves. At the time when the traffic light allows it, the beaches will be open; but remember, Covid19 has not left, we are going out to live with it , and therefore measures will have to be implemented to protect us."

From the Tortugranja FB page...VIDEO of Personnel with Civil Protection rescuing a mama turtle stuck in a coastal cave across from FOVISSSTE. Tuesday, one of our neighbors flipped a smaller mama right-side-up and helped her back into the sea. (Sometimes they fall over when they walk off the rocky ledges of the upper beaches.)

Turtles continue mating and nesting in June. They can be observed mating offshore from Punta Sur during this month, and they nest along the eastern beaches. 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, and very rarely, a Leatherback will attempt to nest, but generally the sand isn't sufficiently deep.

The season for swimming with the whale sharks normally takes place during June, which ends annually in mid-September. They congregate and feed on a 'buffet' of plankton and fish eggs from a type of tuna. Rays are also attracted to the feeding areas.  Photo by Tony Garcia

In June, there are fishing bans on Lobster (fishing resumes July 1st), Octopus (resumes Aug.1), Shrimp (resumes Oct. 15), conch (reusmes Nov.1) and shark.
