Cancun Increases Covid-19 Warning
The Governor of Quintana Roo announced in late January that the northern area of the state including Cancun and Playa Del Carmen will have an increased epidemiological warning level. Governor Carlos Joaquin Gonzalez changed the state warning level to the orange epidemiological light.
Under the orange light, hotels must not exceed a 50% capacity and beaches are limited to 30% capacity. Along with new capacity orders, municipal and state police have stepped up patrols to enforce Covid-19 prevention measures including social distancing and the mandatory use of masks.
Two restaurants in Tulum were recently shut down by authorities for exceeding the maximum capacity allowed under the orange light.
