Abriendo Las Playas de Zih

In Washington, they look at the two week daily average to advance stages. About 3 weeks ago our county had 16 new cases per 100,000 so we moved to stage 2. Beaches were opened, barbers, nail salons, dining at restaurants at 50%, retail at 30% occupancy, group activities limited to 5 people. Today we now have 36 cases per 100,000. We have slightly more than doubled our new cases in just over two weeks. Tomorrow masks are required for everybody unless at home or out of the house with only family members around. We are likely to have to move back to stage one. Many other areas in the states have allowed more and are doing much worse than we are. As of this evening Houston has no ICU beds. Texas, Florida and California have set records for daily new cases all week. They were much more liberal in reopening than Washington state. I hope you have better luck than we are having. This does not seem to be going away any time soon.

Gracias, Tim. We expect tourists will bring the virus with them, but if the hotel workers protect themselves and in turn teach their families the sanitary protective methods they are learning at work, we should see a minimal negative impact.

Our weakest link is currently the public transportation system that so many people use.
