Here is a google translation of a recent statement by the Presidente Municipal of Mulegé
Mulegé, Baja California Sur (BCS). The mayor of Mulegé, José Felipe Prado Bautista mentioned in an interview that, people who "irresponsibly went on vacation" without abiding by sanitary measures, after the arrival of the Coronavirus, will not be able to enter until the contingency ends; Likewise, he warned that those who intend to leave must do so with justification, and that if they do not, they must not return.
"Whoever leaves this municipality clearly knows that if it is not something that can be prosecuted, they leave the municipality completely free, but with the caveat that if they return they will not be able to enter until we have been lifted by the health authorities in some way, that We no longer have so much risk, "said the mayor.
The Mayor made it clear that he will not put his governed at risk since he wants to avoid cases of deaths from COVID-19 as they have arisen in La Paz, so he stressed that vacationers will have to wait to return even if they have commitments work, because they did not meet the recommendations.
"I believe that these people who went on vacation not attending to the indications that were made known in all media, we are already talking about irresponsibility, today the decision is that no one enters Mulegé even if they are residents but left for a cause justified, they will have to return until the emergency passes, "said Prado Bautista.
Felipe Prado assured that only food providers and citizens who have attended a medical appointment in other municipalities will have the right to return to Mulegé, since they are force majeure exits and entrances.
"Only those who have had a health activity enter, and also those who bring food and merchandise, this with the intention of stopping the importation of some visitors both from the north side and from the other municipalities of the state of Baja California Sur," he explained. the Municipal President.
Finally, he said that in order to make this decision, assessments were made, because according to him, it is a measure that will cause legal and citizen reactions; likewise, he indicated that he will request the help of elements of the Navy and National Guard to monitor the entrances and exits of his municipality.
"After many evaluations, many revised issues and of course also subjecting ourselves to some legal reaction and even, there is no other; We have just given the instruction to the Municipal Police and Civil Protection requesting the collaboration of the other instances, the Ministry of Health, the National Guard, the Navy and Sedena so that they can join us in the municipal district of Mulegé, both in the northern part and in the southern part ”, he concluded.

Were are the boundaries of the Municipality of Mulege?

The video link shows the roadblock for southbound traffic pretty much at the state line between Baja (Norte) and Baja Sur. I think that is the Eagle monument in the background and the police are in the parking pulloffs just north of the ag spray station.. Can anybody else ID the location?

It is definitely nowhere near the town of Mulege itself. The land is too flat and there are NO hills or mountains anywhere in sight. The Sea of Cortez side is just not that flat ....

Where is the southern boundary of Mulege and is northbound traffic being stopped also?

The municipality of Mulege begins at the BCS border - not sure where the southern jurisdiction point ends.

Mulege municipality stretches from state border to south end of Bahia Concepcion.

CIERRA FRONTERAS MULEGÉ.... NADIE SALE NI ENTRA!!!

Guerrero Negro (Baja California Sur).- En una medida histórica y unilateral, el presidente municipal Felipe Prado Bautista decidió cerrar las carreteras de ingreso al municipio de Mulegé con elementos de la Policía Municipal, para no permitir el ingreso de personas, salvo los que transporten víveres o tengan una situación médica de emergencia.

Hoy mismo fue instalado un retén por oficiales de la Policía Municipal y personal de protección civil en esta localidad, donde ya se comenzó a regresar a turistas norteamericanos que regularmente transitan por esa vía.

En entrevista con el medio GUERRERO DE SAL, el alcalde Felipe Prado Bautista dijo que ante la emergencia de la epidemia de coronavirus, donde Mulegé está aún libre de contagios, se decidió cerrar el paso a todas las personas en tránsito, incluyendo turistas.

Aunque dice que es una medida controversial, el edil sostuvo que solo busca proteger a las comunidades de esta enfermedad que se está transmitiendo de persona a persona y que en caso de llegar, ocasionaría serios problemas por no contar infraestructura de salud suficiente.

Agregó que los residentes del municipio de Mulegé que salieron de vacaciones, no podrán ingresar salvo que sean sometidos a profunda revisión médica y se descarten como portadores de covid-19.

Solicitó a los muleginos no abandonar los límites territoriales, pues de salir, ya no podrán regresar. De la misma forma, los camiones de transportes de pasajeros no podrán dejar ni recoger pasaje en ninguna de las localidades muleginas y quienes deseen viajar al norte, que mejor lo hagan en avión.

Felipe Prado Bautista pidió a la población permanecer en sus hogares y, además, confirma que giró instrucción a la Policía Municipal para que no se permita la circulación de ningún vehículo en horas de la noche. "Quienes lo hagan, serán detenidos y sometidos a una revisión minuciosa y si traen bebidas alcohólicas, los remitirán a barandilla donde se les aplicarán fuertes sanciones".

The title of this thread notes shutting down hwy 1 but there is nothing in the text nor in the news report on this to indicate the highway is shutting down, only preventing people entering the town. Does anyone have concrete input as to whether they are allowing northbound travellers not intending to stop to pass through?

now I dont think actually think the muni president has the legal right to block a federal highway, but the people are backing him up, so we shall see how long it lasts

he says if you are traveling north you should take a plane, i havent seent reports of any northbound vehicle travelers who have tried to cross yet

southbound looks to be pretty locked up tight though

I have it on good authority that you are not restricted from traveling north through the checkpoint at Guerrero Negro. They will not, however, let you come back south through that point. This comes from an official who is doing the checking this morning at said point.

We will all find out soon enough, I sure wouldn't want to travel during this particular time. Common sense says, 'holed up' and ride it out where you are. Sheltering in place in Baja would've been a preferable method for this particular time, but Mexico got the memo wrong and with all the stark indications, acted way too late. It's old news now, so forget it. For the most part we will all be just fine, the 20% that are seriously effected, most may indeed be elderly, which is brutal, out of that 20% maybe 5% don't make it, even more brutal. Pay attention citizen, make bright and cautious decisions, thinking most are retired or otherwise can make adjustments to thier schedules if need be. Stay safe & healthy

Do your own research Paranewbi. Google search corona fatalities by age and come up with some different graphs. Do something constructive rather than riding my tail and feeding off me. Contribute something worthwhile.

Refrain from the personal attacks or I'm going to drop to your level. I don't come here for the mud slinging.

Here ya go Skip...



See any difference in the reports between your Chinese one and San Diego? Seems like most are in the middle of the accounting and not in the upper aged.

Your regurgitating a known and exposed source, that is not accepted as accurate by most all agencies around the world, and condemnation is falling on WHO for relying or regurgitating such material should be cause for not perpetrating a false impression to cause fear.

As for your childish threats of some form of disparagement of me...stick to evidence and sourcing as your strength. I don't fear empty attacks.

Just to clarify... the difference between the 80+ age group is in San Diego they account for only 5.3% less than 1/3 as in your Chinese report.

And as there are about 3 million of us in SD the 80+ deaths from C-19 somewhere in the .10 % of the population in total...

Live in fear, die in fear, your choice. But don't live in ignorance.
