Locals are very much against foreigners right now. Here in town, they don't realize that Mexicans coming from other towns also bring the chance of spreading the virus.

Threat of death from plague brings out tribalism and xenophobia :(

Oh for heaven's sake, small communities want to keep covid-19 out. And we should stay out. They do not have the medical facilities to keep those who succumb alive. So stay the flock at home.

Is there a checkpoint South of San Felipe that is also stopping traffic coming north on hwy5?

Many of my local friends and neighbors feel that the virus is sort of a gringo thing.

Right again, G.

Trump's confiscation of international health equipment orders is an indication of that. "America First ... eff the rest of 'em".

We are all in this together, whether folks want to believe it or not.... a test of humanity.....

BB,
How is Asuncion managing? Trips to V. for banking?

Gas and food supplies in town?

Will you be hunkering in at Asuncion ?

For some.


For all of us - some sooner than others. While I'd like to think I have a decade or two left in me, I've taken measures to ensure that my inevitable passing doesn't become a burden to others, whether it's my loved ones or anyone else.

To Lee's point, most governments - ostensibly servants of the people - show their true colors during crises like these, serving only themselves and their inner circle.

I just continue to be astounded that there are still people who think it is fine to come down here because they are not being stopped by officials , who apparently are not doing their job.

I get it, it s not fun to be in many places in the US right now.

BUT, big but, can we not think of others? Baja does not have a strong health care system and has a high percentage of people with chronic health conditions such as diabetes that places them at greater risk of infection. If the collapses of the health care system in the US are bad, just think what could happen here.

So even if you think it is cool that you were able to cross the border heading south, because the government here is what it is, don't take advantage of that, and take responsibility yourself to do the right thing.
Would you want to be the person responsible for infecting others ; someone's grandmother parent aunt uncle ? And maybe they die becaue there are no ventilators or hospital beds? No one knows how hard it may strike here. One look at Italy should be enough to give a huge pause. Or Guayaquil Ecuador, where bodies are left in the streets.
Stay put. Not fun. But life is not always fun and about what we want to do personally.

So far so good. Most stores accept cards now so not as much need for cash. We’ve gone to Vizcaino for a Leys grocery run. It was very quiet and most stores closed. I still see people hanging out here but things are changing by the day.

Our plan is to stay here as long as possible but it really depends on what happens with work. Wife and are both teachers. As of now, we’ve been able to check in with students and staff. But it’s also Spring Break. We’ll know more soon. Ideally I want to stay here until things settle down in San Diego. It’s very easy to self isolate here.

I've been wondering by some of the posts lately.... is it the "STAY" or the "PUT" that confuses them?

Kinda like the big "N" or the little "o". SMDH

You have reliable/fast enough Internet there to run virtual classes? Many schools in the U.S. are trying to run virtual classes at least temporarily...


We have been able to Zoom and use Teams so far. I think initially we’ll be checking in with students and providing enrichment. There are so many uncertainties at the moment.

Gringo retirees and Spring breakers, traveling to Their vacation homes in baja, May be asymptomatic Typhoid Marys,... I suppose they feel secure in not following public health advice and orders, oblivious as to whether they are spreading contagion... :(
the selfish will always be selfish :(

From the Mexico News Daily - first time visitor - and just learned some new words.... Dry Law


.......
Municipal authorities in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, announced the prohibition of alcohol sales beginning on Monday, threatening any businesses that fail to comply with fines ranging from 8,600-16,800 pesos (US $345-$673).

Also in Baja California Sur, the municipality of Comondú announced on Friday the immediate prohibition of alcohol sales for the remainder of the month-long emergency declaration, with sanctions running from fines to shutting down businesses.

And under the MORE NEWS tab, just a matter of fact report of a gang on gang shootout for a 19 deaths tally. Bullet riddled truck pic included.

No Alcohol Sales in Mexico! That won’t even be as successful as no fireworks sales and use have been! If it is successful there’ll be a revolt that make Via’s look small by comparison!
