Guerrero's health authorities report there are currently 66 active cases of Covid-19 in Zihuatanejo. The one patient admitted to the hospital last weekend passed away and is our first official death of the year. The state issued a restriction on occupancy at hotels, theaters, bars, restaurants and beaches in effect until at least January 23. Hotels, beaches, recreational yachts, water sports, banks, stores, beauty salons, public transport, churches, galleries, museums, public plazas and pretty much everywhere people gather can have a maximum occupancy of 70%. Restaurants and bars must close by 1AM. No alcohol can be sold after 10PM. Even though it hasn't been enforced, beaches are supposed to be closed after 7PM until 6AM. Massive indoor events can only have 50% occupancy and event-goers must have a certificate of vaccination (we have those here in Mexico) or a clean antigen test within 72 hours prior. You can consult the complete decree and all its details on the website for the Periódico Oficial del Gobierno del Estado de Guerrero.

Needless to say, hotels, stores, restaurants and other businesses here and throughout the state will be stepping up their health safety protocols.

Our Presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador tested positive today for Covid-19. We are all wishing him a speedy and full recovery while he remains in isolation.

¡Cuidemos nuestro patrimonio!

There has been a lot of activity along the shoreline every morning for the past several weeks. It seems like more every day, and the pelicans have also increased in numbers. Still, it's nothing like it used to be when my wife grew up here and you could almost scoop fish out of the water with your hands during the mornings, but it's encouraging to see so much marine life. Unfortunately there was a huge fish kill last week in Petacalco from that damn oil-burning power plant that continues to poison everything around it (thank you NAFTA).
