Quintana Roo stays green for second consecutive week

Riviera Maya, Q. R. — The state of Quintana Roo will continue on its green epidemiological path. For the second week this year, the state will remain with a green light.

Governor Carlos Joaquin said the state will remain green due to a low rate of covid-19 infections. With that low rate is also a low hospital occupancy rate of less than 1 percent.

He said that being green for the second week allows the recovery processes to continue in a better way and with greater opportunities for those businesses that could not reopen but now can.

“At the same time, it generates confidence in visitors, in tourists, especially now when forecasts indicate that Quintana Roo will reach 15 million plane seats this year, a number that has already been confirmed and also with a growth in land passengers in Chetumal from 800 to 4,000 weekly and up to 10,000 visitors in the last two weeks from Belize,” he added.

According to information provided, currently up to 90,000 cruise visitors are registered in Cozumel and Costa Maya.

However, Carlos Joaquín stressed that people still need to follow health protocols. From February 28 to March 6, the state will again be in a green light.
