Many cases now in La Bocana, I heard this morning. Everyone who gets sick stays home but who knows how many got infected in the days before that.

I know it was bound to happen but ughhhhhhhhhh

X 1000 and maybe Mexico should take a closer look at the free for all drive/fly thru/across the border. With 2 to 300,000 new cases a DAY in the US is simply disgusting.

Just because you are all off on your own on some deserted beach camping doesn't mean you teleported there and back. You have to have a bunch of contact going to and from.

You can’t contain a virus like this. It was inevitable.

Close up until you can deal with it. Then open back up.

Life must go on. Take all the safety steps you can.

If I'm on a drive down Baja to get to said "deserted beach", how is that putting anyone at risk? If masks work, then let's all wear masks and not worry about things.

EVERY business has mask mandates in place. If I stop for fuel, I'm not putting anyone at risk as the attendant fills my tank. If I stop at a OXXO, I must wear a mask, and the people working there must wear a mask. If I stop at a restaurant (which is open for Mexican locals already), they are wearing masks, and I must as well.

On my last trip down to Baja Sur, I wore a mask any time I was out in public, around anyone. Even (and ESPECIALLY) when the locals were NOT wearing masks, and I had to be in close proximity to them.

Maybe its the locals, as much as the visitors, who are walking around without any care of masks? I had a flat tire and went to a tire shop. The main guy at the shop, his family and friends, and a few other locals were standing around, sans-masks. I wore mine the entire time. The spread and any risk had NOTHING to do with me. The tire shop will be open regardless of whether or not I go there.

I really don't see ANYONE who is treating Mexico as a personal consequence-free playground, any more than they are treating their hometowns as such.

I should be extremely careful, for the sake of others. Others should be extremely careful for the sake of me.

Very well said aburruss.

No reasonable person believes this virus isn't really serious.

We have to live with it, and be very cautious.

don't kid yourself. not everyone camps on a deserted beach, and never comes
within 2 meters of another person not in their group. driving past the hotel California any afternoon and one can see loads of maskless tourists getting those important selfies.

Here in beautiful Bahia Asuncion we dodged the bullet for sooo long but the holidays proved to be fatal for a few.

People in town have followed protocol in the stores since the beginning, masked, hand washing and gel application.

But December is when people have quinceneras, baptisms and lots of family gatherings and parties. The outbreak here of 15 cases last week..at least...is thought to have been brought in by a sick antie from Ensenada who attended a baptism... so church service and big party after where several big families became infected. Most of the sick recovered now but some weren't so lucky. People infected had no contact with tourists at all.

It was inevitable and as I predicted spread rapidly throughout the families over Christmas & New Years. Now people are taking it more serious of course and staying home in their bubble.

Here at our Inn, we also follow protocol with temperatures taken, gel for hands, extra cleaning & disinfecting & most guests are masked & have either been tested or vaccinated and practice social distancing unless they are families or travel together.

There is no roadblock or even a health checkpoint here. People have been told to not travel between the fish camps as there are infections there. The restaurants are closed again and only open for take out or pick up but all the stores are open.

Thank you for the update, Shari!
I am so sorry for the losses in town... It sounded like it was totally avoidable, too.
Hang in there...

David, I believe you meant "accelerate".

NOT everyone is wearing masks (which are a preventative measure....not a guarantee....as there is no zero on any risk dial).

It is spreading because it's management is very difficult and a significant number of people do not do their best to follow suggested health protocols....and some still seriously minimize transmission risks.

We see justifications of this daily on BN.

Hope you and yours stay healthy.

They "are" or "were" your thoughts :light:

Good extrapolative cognition.....however the reality of spreader behaviours beats the reduction curve.

I encourage you to trust science a bit more.

Demographics seem to be a big factor. I suspect most of us on this forum live in small households where isolation is more easily achieved and if we still work it is not in service or manufacturing where on the job isolation is difficult and where workers carpool or use public transit to get to work. People in those categories also tend to live in larger households which are more vulnerable. Retail and supermarket workers are also more exposed and it appears that many of those infected are asymptomatic. There are no easy answers to the questions you pose but it certainly has become clear that the virus is exceedingly opportunistic. My county, San Luis Obispo, has until recently not been as hard hit as other areas but that has changed dramatically. To me it seemed inevitable, our beaches have been packed with out of the area folks and we are on a major highway connecting Northern and Southern Ca. Until recently most people at the gas pumps have not been masked.

Just my observations locally since I have not been out of this county for almost a year.

Because all it takes is a few people not adhering to precautions, (and it isn't true that everyone in So Cal is, there are plenty of videos of anti-maskers provoking confrontations in public places) to exponentially and quickly spread the virus. "Most" wearing masks and distancing isn't good enough. And if no one was taking precautions, everyone would be infected, which isn't the case. That shouldn't be so hard to understand.
