Both the Northern and Southern Zones of the state remain in Orange thru June 6th. The Governor expressed concern that the Contagion Rate for our Zone has reached 1.14. Our state is also Orange on the National semaforo. 


 Disminucion means  decrease and Aumento means increase.

Isla Mujeres reports a total of 300 positives, 33 deaths from C-19 and 258 recovered. The growth rate of new cases for our Zone has reached 0.55.

 On Sunday, June 6, Mexico is holding elections & in Q Roo, they're choosing federal legislators (our Mayor is one of the candidates) and local government (municipal Presidents and City Councils). There is a "Ley Seca" (Dry Law") during elections with some exceptions for tourists. In Q Roo, it lasts 48 hours, prohibiting drinking on Saturday and Sunday (from midnight Friday to midnight Sunday). During this time there are no package sales (stores can't sell alcohol), but tourists can by alcoholic drinks at restaurants in the Tourist Zones usually with food. (The only "bars" that are open since the pandemic sell food & are technically "restaurants".) I'll publish the official notice after Sefilplan posts it.

The trash transfer facility started burning on Sunday night around 11pm and TV Isla Mujeres reported it was extinguished by Monday morning. On Tuesday, is was burning again. It appeared to be burning in the organic materials area (where the brush is). Screenshot from a video by TV Isla Mujeres on Sunday night. The second screenshot is also from a TV Isla Mujeres video when it resumed burning on Tuesday morning.
