We will like to update you on the most recent information on corona virus given by Mexico´s President and the Governor of Baja.
This weekend Mexico´s President has acknowledge the Corona virus crisis and has asked people to stay indoors for at least 30 days, except for essential employees such as medical field and security field.
Governor of Baja has closed the public beaches and they will remain closed during Holy week & Easter week as well as Restaurants, bars, casinos and gyms on the hopes to avoid that the virus spreads, also national flights have been intentionally reduced to avoid that people from the mainland bring in the virus; Mexico city registers the most positive cases right now.
Today Baja Sur registers 12 corona virus cases, of which 10 are in Los Cabos and 2 in La Paz.
On the other hand the Governor of Baja met with the representatives of Hotels. They are already working on bringing back the tourism as soon as this emergency is over. On the other hand Governor of Baja is expecting that the corona virus infections start to grow anytime now and the Hospitals will be surpassed easily, if needed hotels that are currently closed will help by lending rooms to keep patients isolated.
La Jolla and staff are doing well. Staff will maintain rotating so half the staff is always present. Security will continue on normal shifts. The Office staff will also remain doing home office and one of us will be coming by daily to check on things as well.
The grocery stores that locals purchase from are running low on basic staples the locals can afford. The gringo grocery stores are overstocked, but they are too expensive for the locals to purchase. Things such as beans, rice, eggs, etc are becoming in short supply and expensive. As a result, we have provided our La Jolla staff with some of these staples to be distributed amongst our staff. In times like these we need to show our support to our diligent and loyal staff.
