Unfortunately, today the municipality of Isla Mujeres reports another death for a total of 14, with 194 positives and 141 recovered. 

The Geoportal of active cases by colonia still shows data for 9/24, which I already reported.

On the national map for 9/25, the municipality reports 5 suspicious and 83 negatives (with 194 confirmed and 13 deaths)   


Yesterday, The National Semaforo-Epidemiological Light was announced for the next two weeks, and unfortunately, Quintana Roo is back in the High Risk/Orange category, with 14 other states, starting Monday. We're currently in the Yellow phase, for the first time. There are no states in the Maximum Risk/Red category, 16 in Yellow/Moderate Risk, and the first state to achieve the Green category is Campeche.
>>THIS IS DIFFERENT from the STATE epidemiological light, where our Northern Zone of Q Roo remains in Yellow next week & the beaches remain open at 60% capacity.<<

#1 is the current National Semaforo with Q Roo in Yellow
The others are the NEW National Semaforo that starts Monday, Sept 28 thru Sunday, Oct.11 with Q Roo in Orange.
Note--The STATE light is updated weekly on Thursdays for the following Monday-Sunday, which divides the state into two zones, and determines what activities are permitted at what capacities. The NATIONAL light is updated every two weeks.

Always wear your face mask when leaving the house.

Avoid greeting with kissing, hugging or handshakes

On the 25th of each month, "Orange Day" is commemorated, which is dedicated to eradicating violence against women and girls. This month, the IMM (Municipal Women's Institute) conducted a clean-up along the walking path of Salina Grande lake. The Director, Norma Bacab Garrido, said these kinds of actions are intended to keep various spaces in good condition so that women and families feel safe when moving thru these areas.

Training is provided in an ongoing, continual manner for the the personnel with Civil Protection and the Firefighters, so that they are prepared to react in any eventuality including fires, water rescues, or weather events. They train for one or two hours daily, they perform exercises with actual fire, and the lifeguards practice with people in the sea, in order to be well prepared for any eventuality.

Turtles continue nesting in September. 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.

Swimming with the whale sharks ends Sept. 17 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
