Isla Mujeres News & Events on Facebook
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
Follow hygiene measure to combat Covid-19
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.
