RE: Booster Jabs?

Here in Mexico, they are giving vaccinations based on age groups. They still have to, at least here in Guerrero, catch the over 18 year olds who had Covid when their time was scheduled, and haven't had any doses. It was announced today that, again, here in Guerrero, the 12 t0 18 year olds with health issues would be vaccinated before the ones who weren't vaccinated during their age times and would be done later. However, they did acknowledge that the ones that missed their shots likely missed them because they had Covid and were sick. Things are good, however, we personally don't think that boosters will be available until everyone else is vaccinated.

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

In over 40 years of road traveling in Mexico, we have always been impressed by the use of masks. They are/were used in grocery stores in service areas, like the deli's where they slice your ham to the places where fish is filleted. We have been bragging about the mask use in Mexico for this entire time. Five years ago we spent 2 months in China, touring. We saw extensive mask use, even in Wuhan. We have been preachers of mask use in the US, and have experienced the use of them when visiting doctors offices and clinics there. When someone doesn't feel right, or is sick, mask use is culturally normal.

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

We are similar to you in the large groups of people and trying to make intelligent decisions. Hopefully you will continue to visit this great country, and others, and rent and explore. Your thoughts and observations are appreciated.

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

None necessary, you made great points and reiterated that mask wearing in Mexico, (and anywhere) doesn't hurt, and could help.

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

This wasn't intended to be a discussion on the effectiveness of masks or other methods of preventing the spread of covid, but an informative post about how masking is being handled in Mexico.

RE: Using Resources-the many members who live here full time

As I recall it has been in effect for almost 2 years. qtla9111 will know. It is restricted to citizens, temporary and permanent residents, and in the IMSS hospitals, not the private ones. Temporary or permanent residency isn't difficult to get, it's simply a process.

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

Thank you both. Yes, qtla9111 Proof of vaccination here in Mexico is on line and even includes your own QR code. The Covid maps for Mexico are available and thanks for posting it.

Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

Mexico is dealing with Covid completely differently than the US is. Vaccinations are very tightly controlled by the federal government and were/are being administered by age groups. Here in Guerrero, everyone from age 18 and up has had the opportunity to receive 2 vaccinations. The vaccines used vary by age group and include at least three that are not approved in the US including Cansino and Sinovac. There are still a lot of holes. For example, our gardener was face down with Covid when his day arrived to get his first dose. He was not allowed to get the second one because he hadn't had the first and the time between shots is important. Guerrero has not yet had make ups for anyone who missed their first shot, so many are still unvaccinated who want to be vaccinated. Testing. In Mexico, now, if you are sick and have all the wrong symptoms, chances are good you can go to the government, not private, clinics and wait in line to find out that you have it. So what? Until recently if you thought you had it you called in, they played 20 questions, and if you said the wrong things they would come to you to test you and have you stay at home for quarantine for 14 days. Very different. MASKS ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!! That is for a couple of reasons. Obviously, to keep you from spreading your germs. OK, you are vaccinated, but how does anyone know that? We obviously are foreigners and the foreigners do whatever that want to do anyway. DON'T MAKE US LOOK BAD!!!!! The tourist police and the regular police here are very visible and passing out masks to those that aren't wearing one. If a non mask wearer approaches with questions, they are offered a mask. If it is refused, and it often is, they ignore the person and walk on. Boy, does that make us look bad. Unless you are sitting at a table with food or drink, playing in a pool or the ocean or lounging around the pool with drinks, you should have one on. Get up to pee? Put it on while you walk there and back. Some of the public service messages we see, and believe in, when we go to the movies, we eat popcorn. Fine. But if we have to get up and pee, on goes the mask to leave the theater and return. At the gas station, the driver wears a mask while ordering gas and paying for it. When you tip the parking guy who backs you out, you wear your mask. Remember, even with all the doses we hope all RVers have had, you could be carrying it and pass it on to some poor worker who like our gardener, desperately wants to get his shots and is still waiting. He missed 5 weeks of work while he had Covid, and economically is really struggling. Most workers are. I'm willing to bet money that every single worker you deal with while traveling will have a mask on all the time. Be respectful, wear one too!!!

RE: CH-CH-CH changes ( with apologies to David Bowie)

Nice to hear from you. Hurricane Pamela made landfall on Wednesday, October 13, 40 miles north of Mazatlan. She was Category 1 at that point, so it's safe to assume that there will be some road damage in that area.

RE: CH-CH-CH changes ( with apologies to David Bowie)

Gas prices in Zihuatanejo, Guerrero on Hwy 200. We only have Pemex. Regular is over 21 pesos per liter and diesel is over 23 pesos per liter. Not aware of any shortages.

Using Resources-the many members who live here full time

I think it's time to point out that many of the members that post regularly here live in Mexico full time, and some for many many years. I'm sure that there are some I'm not aware of, but people to heed, and ask advice of because they are actually here would be qtla9111, playaboy, navagator, Talleyho69 (Moderator), and there are bound to be more that I'm forgetting. Just between the four of us we cover different areas of the country and different types of vehicles. All are open to questions and to share information. Yes, there are a number of other great contributors who spend time in Mexico, not just in one location, but some travel the country. Hopefully those members will also share their knowledge. Everyone has something to share, let's do that!!!

RE: The Big Day is announced

Both. Mexico never closed it's borders, the US closed both the Canadian and Mexican borders. Great news that they open November 8.

RE: Border

Moisheh, thanks for your reply. It shows that we are NOT a country that has totally inadequate heath care. Not trying to start anything..... We hope the border opens on the 21st, we have NO understanding as to why the US hasn't opened up. It defies logic. Please, get to your house safely, have a wonderful, warm winter, and continue to help others realize what a great country this is to visit and live in! Moderator
Talleyho69 10/11/21 07:18pm RVing in Mexico and South America
RE: Border

We REALLY hope something works so that ALL of you can come here for the winter, especially you Moisheh. You have suffered enough. I'm sure that Playaboy can definitely work something our for anyone's return to the US. I have used him for things and have sent him work from others and everyone has been very pleased. If he can't there is bound to be someone that can fill the bill. With any luck whatsoever, the US border will reopen October 21, or sooner.

RE: Border

Are you referring to the Red Trolley that is the main public transportation in the San Diego area? It does run from the border north, but the issue is the inability of Canadians to cross the land border.

RE: Border

I SO agree about Tijuana.

RE: Border

Whoever thought that the biggest hurdles would become entering the US from Canada and Mexico..... Our local "expert" should be weighing in soon on the legal ins and outs of transporting vehicles from Mexico into the US. He does this and knows the legalities.
Talleyho69 10/04/21 11:18am RVing in Mexico and South America
RE: Border

I'm reading yes, but it needs to be taken to somewhere they can fly into. Canadians can't walk or drive across the US border, at least until October 21. It could change then, who knows?
Talleyho69 09/30/21 03:06pm RVing in Mexico and South America
RE: Border

I've been curious too about exactly who can drive across the border from Canada into the US. It seems as though a US citizen could drive back from Canada in any type of legal vehicle, have their Canadian friends fly to whatever airport and that would do it. Is this the case? If so, it's time for Canadian RVer's to call in favors!!!

RE: Weapon storage before Baja

Assuming you mean Potrero, I'd look for a local gun store. You may have to go into San Diego for that. https://www.discountgunmart.com/info/firearm-storage-faq Good luck, SO glad you know not to take them across the border with you.
