Los Cabos is second Mexican destination to get Safe Travels stamp.
In other breaking news: the fox has given all hens the safe travel seal to leave the roost.

Just another great example of how Headlines are for Fools. From the article, note The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) represents the Travel & Tourism sector globally:

The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has given Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, its stamp of approval for hygiene and sanitary measures the popular tourist destination has adopted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the municipality, home to San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, remains under coronavirus restrictions. Beaches, ports, hotels, restaurants and all non-essential businesses remain closed.

Los Cabos and everything on the Baja Peninsula with the exception of La Paz , Esenada and TJ seem to be doing pretty good. Even if there is a second wave these areas that are good should be at least fair regarding covid, imo.

Los Cabos draws its tourists mainly from southern California.

Which means it's no safer than any other beach or bar in southern California.

I just got an email from Grand Solmar that states hotels will start their phased re-opening on June 15th. It also said there are new safety protocols and lots of specials/incentives to get visitors back to Cabo.

And this afternoon, Los Cabos Passport sent me this email:

Starting on June 15th the state traffic light system will start to be enforced, which will tell us about the type of business that will be able to operate. This traffic light system is guided by the information provided by the state health department.

We will become a level 5 entity on the pandemic control system, this means that we are still on a critical level of infectious and contagious cases. We need to keep actively following the sanitization and health guidelines such as using masks on public spaces, hand washing often, and keeping a safe distance.

At 83 days of the first COVID-19 case in Baja California Sur, there have been a total of 833 cases. There has been an increase in medical staff and equipment to help cover the needs of our population. There are now 355 hospital beds for use exclusively for the pandemic efforts and 175 volumetric respirators in the state health system. The occupancy has been about 8% of beds and 15% of the respirators. To date, we have 45 patients from which only 19 are intubated. The infection rate is estimated at 1.07, which means that for each person with COVID-19 there is one more contagion. Being able to bring this rate lower than 1 will begin to stop this pandemic.

We are now in place 29 out of 32 on the national level for infections, 20 in lethality rate, and 31 in total deaths. 91% of the cases have defeated the disease with isolated home care.

The authorized activities that have public service on location will be able to do so with the limited occupation. In our current level 5 situation, only one client per 4 square meters will be allowed. Social events will be only allowed in certain public spaces with permits from the municipal governments with up to 30% of the maximum capacity. Hotels, lodging, and any touristic services will also be allowed to operate at 30% capacity. Recreational activities such as running and exercise in public spaces are allowed only in open spaces. For La Paz Malecon only vehicles will be allowed, there will be no access to pedestrians.

We have a stay Dec 12-19. Looking forward to returning as we canceled an April trip. Aruba is opening with several hoops to jump. Interesting to see what happens with SJD.
