Popular Mexican Tourist Destinations Facing Lockdown

With coronavirus cases on the rise, the governor of Quintana Roo, where popular Mexican tourist destinations like Cancun and Tulum are located, is debating locking the state down.

According to the Associated Press, Gov. Carlos Joaquin said last week that the region had seen five weeks of increases in casesThe governor cited Easter travel as the reason for the rise.

“We knew that there were large risks during Easter week, that there could be a greater number of infections. Unfortunately, that came to pass,” Gov. Joaquín said.

Right now, Quintana Roo is designated as an orange region on the stoplight system. The system utilizes red, yellow, orange, and green to determine what is allowed to open or stay closed. The state is currently allowing outdoor activities with restrictions and no indoor activities. Hotels and restaurants are operating at 50 percent capacity.

Other tourist activities such as bars, nightclubs, and other entertainment venues are supposed to be closed. Still, according to The Points Guy, visitors have seen packed bars in the state.

If the state reaches the red designation, it will go into total lockdown. Only essential activities would be allowed at that point. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 220,000 people have died from the virus in Mexico. The country has had more than 2.4 positive cases. Quintana Roo has had more than 25,000 positive cases of COVID-19, with about 2,700 deaths.
