As of today Zihuatanejo has registered a cumulative total of 1,488 confirmed cases of Covid-19 (3 more than yesterday), 110 that have resulted in fatalities, 10 that are currently active, and 1,270 that have recovered. Our curve seems to be staying pretty flat if not actually decreasing.

Got some new Beach Rules set by the state government. I don't like most of them, but here they are:
1. Beach access from 7AM to 7PM.
2. Facemasks are obligatory.
3. You must pass through a "sanitary filter" to enter the beach.
PERMITTED ACTIVITIES:
Individual activities such as walking, running and swimming.
A maximum of three people may gather together practicing safe social distancing.
BANNED ACTIVITIES:
Food and drink services.
Consumption of alcohol and tobacco products.
Access of pets, horses, and all types of motor vehicles.
Beach furniture such as umbrellas, tables and chairs.

I'm going to guess some places will enforce these rules differently than others. Personally the only one I like is the banning of motorized vehicles. All the rest suck. Unfortunately it seems all of Guerrero is paying the price for problems they have in Acapulco.

We've had some large waves from the mar de fondo effect for the past 3 days. Haven't seen a cloud all week.

So for facemasks on the beach and the Mexican translation.

Is Obligatory, Mandatory? Thanks.

It will be interesting to see how this is enforced at the south end of La Ropa where the weekend traffic looks heavier. Last night there was one guy who looks to be about 70 who walks along the beach and tries to make people adhere to some type of social distancing. It is like trying to fight the tide.

No. Beach restaurants are who benefit the most from this if people want to sit in the shade or drink anything other than refrescos and water. It is exclusionary for the majority of locals who cannot afford the prices at local beach restaurants.

I'm not going to pretend to interpret the translation. You can interpret it however you like. Use common sense.

It would be awesome if that motor vehicle ban were also enforced out here in la Playa Buenavista. We frequently have groups of 5-7 quad motos go by and there have been some close calls with animals and humans on the beach.

Someone nearby has horses who occasionally take themselves for unsupervised walks on the beach. Couple weeks ago the guys on the quad motos chased the horses down the beach until they could find a clear area to get away. Poor horses were really running scared. Don't think the horses pose much of a COVID threat.

If nothing else I wish the moto guys would tune their engines properly so they don't stink. And not ride like this is the final 5km of the Baja 500.

Motorized vehicles are actually banned on beaches by FEDERAL law. A call to 911 to report them might help. If you see any kind of identifying emblem, such as from a tour guide service or rental agency, that would be helpful.

Yes, I know, thank you. That's one of several reasons I would never advertise that website. Since I prefer not to give them any advertising I've deleted part of the URL. What they offer is illegal. Profepa needs to do their job and sanction them. Unfortunately their local office is underbudgeted and understaffed.

If I read that correctly either the restaurant is exempt or they are basically shut down with no food or drink service.
