In June, there were 11 cases of Covid-19 in the municipality of Isla Mujeres, which is six more than April and three less than May. (#1) The total reported cases increased from 19 to 30 this month. There was a death in April, one in May, and none this month.
The progression from five cases to 30 over the past two months is shown in Graphs #2 & 3. There was a ten-day "plateau" before reopening on June 8th, then there was a new case every two or three days, and three on Saturday (#4).
In Cancun, there were 806 new cases in June, which is 75 more than May, and 244 more than April. (#5) They have a total of 2183 reported cases and 438 deaths, which is a rate of one in five or 20 percent.
The state epidemiological traffic light will be updated on Thursday night, for the upcoming Monday thru Sunday. Our region is currently in the Orange status. (#6) Businesses open at 30% include hotels, restaurants, theme parks,& tourism services. The closed category ("no abren") includes beaches, public parks, bars, gyms & schools. Red decreases these capacities to 15% and Yellow increases them to 60%, when beaches may reopen. Bars reopen in the Green category (but restaurants serving alcohol are open in orange). Masks are currently mandatory.
Thursday's update will be translated by Isla Mujeres News & Events, sponsored by Maravilla Caribe Bed & Beach. This summary was written by Ronda Winn-Roberts. Feel free to share!
Isla Mujeres statistics include both the island and the mainland, and Cancun includes the entire municipality of Benito Juarez. The state doesn't provide a breakdown for the island alone.

- Almost a month since the red light was lifted and several ′′ essential ′′ activities were resumed in the northern part of Quintana Roo, today the outlook seems to be more complicated and it is not discarded that times of general confinement could return, due to the number of cases registered lately.

Turtles continue nesting in July. 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.

Swimming with the whale sharks takes place in July, 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

Delta Aquariid meteor showers begin in mid July, peak on July 31-August 1st when there is less interference from moonlight,  and continue thru August 23rd.

Lobster fishing resumes in July, until the end of February.
