  Both regions of the state remain in YellownNov. 30-Dec. 6. The Contagion Rate increased from 0.87 to between 0.94 and 0.95 and the Governor encouraged everyone to increase their measures of prevention and not let down their guard. The announcement wasn't made until 11:25p. 

Today Isla Mujeres continues to report a total of 224 positive with 20 deaths and 189 recovered. On the national map for 11/25, the municipality reports 156 suspicious and 118 negatives. On the state geoportal for 11/25 the active cases by colonia are 1 each in colonia Caridad del Cobre and El Canotal.


This weekend, the CDC issued new guidelines (recommendations) about ALL international travel, placing most of the world, 180 countries including Mexico, at Level 4. There are none at Level 3, and only 12 at Level 2, with all being islands except Uruguay & South Korea. Level 1 includes 49 countries.

The CDC recommends that ALL international travelers get tested 1-3 days before flying and 3-5 days afterward. They advise staying home a week after travel, even with a negative test, and staying home for two weeks if you don't get tested. While traveling, they advise wearing a mask, distancing, hand washing, and monitoring your health for symptoms.

Mexico is not among the countries whose citizens are prohibited from entry to the United States by presidential proclamation, which currently includes most of Europe, the UK, Ireland, Brazil, China & Iran.

Airlines and the global travel industry have been pushing for countries to use coronavirus testing as a method to safely open up borders and travel until a coronavirus vaccine is widely distributed.

Turtles continue hatching out at the Tortugranja in November

The mamas nest along the eastern beaches from May thru October. 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.  Photos of nest hatching out at MaraVilla Caribe Bed & Beach, that was missed by the Tortugranja patrols, by Bruce.
