In Playa del Carmen we are very lucky. We have an almost flat curve, thanks to the climate, the low population density, and the Government efforts.
At the moment, there are only 127 confirmed cases in the Playa del Carmen local district. That number is in total, which makes an abysmal difference with any major city in the US. For instance, only yesterday Chicago had 5,162 new cases, New York had 14,179 cases, Houston had 23,766 cases, and Toronto had 6,847 new positive cases.
As a result, in Playa del Carmen we enjoy very soft restrictions. Our safety traffic light is yellow, which means that as long as we take precautions, we can go to work, go to restaurants, the beach, and other public spaces normally. Yay!
