Quintana Roo Has Lifted Its Mask Mandate Within the Whole Caribbean Coast State

After COVID -19 incidence decreased and no deaths occurred for five weeks, the Mexican state of Quintana Roo decided to withdraw the mask mandate.

Governor Carlos Joaquin said Tuesday that masks aren't required in someplace sunny and warm coast state, including major tourist destinations such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Cozumel.

In a relevant video message, the governor said the typical daily quantity of new cases has always been below 20 in the last five weeks.

The governor advised individuals with health problems to carry on wearing masks. He added that wearing a mask on public transportation and in enclosed spaces where there is nothing ventilation continues to be advisable.

Joaquin also noticed that the mask requirement might be reintroduced if the situation worsens.

“Remember, [the use of] goggles is really a personal responsibility. Play one if you believe you could be exposed… to the virus,” he said.

Several other Mexican states, including Baja California Sur, Baja California, Mexico City, Tamaulipas, and Nuevo León, have repealed the mask mandate.

Mexico hasn't fully implemented or enforced any of the Covid19 measures.

The country was quick to spread out its doors without asking questions or requiring testing, while European capitals required Covid-19 passes and PCR testing and the Usa largely banned travelers from a large number of nations.

According to officials, tourism is such an important economic driver that Mexico cannot afford to limit entry.

It is a “part” blessing when you have to serve tables, clean toilets, and drive busses or cabs for all the visitors since large beach resorts have repeatedly been hit by coronavirus outbreaks believed to happen to be introduced by tourists.

Meanwhile, another threat is approaching Mexican beaches: federal officials anticipate the appearance of 32 thousand tons of sargassum seaweed, a troubling statistic, based on Admiral Rafel Ojeda, the Secretary of the Mexican Navy (Semar).

Authorities are prepared for the largest amount of sargassum seen on Cancun beaches since 2022, based on Ojeda, who recently termed the problem “alarming.”
