It could have a lot to do with rv and Mexico. If the UK imposes barriers to Mexico travel the usa could follow suit. So far the USA has not considered quarantines. Many countries have done this
If travelers had to quarantine in a hotel that would end any North American visitors. One might say that is nuts. That would never happen. But with a variant that is getting out of control and lots of unmasked Americans the US government might have to take drastic measures .

Allow me to present some numbers - which are to be found at the US CDC site - which also has easy to read charts. Last entry 7/31/21

Covid hospitalizations in the USA by age:
Covid Related: age 18 and younger 42 65 and older 365
https://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/covidnet/COVID19_5.html

Covid related deaths (scroll down to second chart titled Provisional Death Counts and notice the chart - Covid related deaths are at the lowest point since Covid was first tracked. And trending lower.

Mexico's tourism has already been devastated.

Things have been extremely bad in the tourist sector before this announcement. Last year Cancun had less than 35% occupancy. Hundreds of businesses are "out of business". Tens of 1000's of people have no work. There are no covid checks, no unemployment checks, only hunger.

A couple of weeks ago when I was in Tulum, I took a former employee (friend) to Chedraui and bought her and her kids about 3000p in groceries. They have been surviving on eggs, beans and rice for months. Chicken and pork are a luxury they can not afford.

If you are afraid of getting sick than you should stay home and protect yourself. Don't go out. Luckily you can have all your needs delivered. That is the only way to be completely safe. You can not count on a government, your neighbors, and apparently a vaccine to keep you completely safe.

Don't stop others from living the life they chose, if your government allows you to still make personal choices.

Mexico has been very smart not to enforce the so-called closing of the border. It would harm more people than covid.

playaboy, But you haven't explained one critical thing; why has Mexico abandoned its vaccination program? If Mexico is going to put the emphasis on its economy, why not ramp up vaccinations for Mexican citizens running businesses and working in the tourist areas, thereby showing true data of innoculation of areas where fly-in and drive-in tourists visit. They certainly would come if they saw that data published from a reputable source. If the survival of tourism is the key, vaccination of that area of the economy should be first. Again, why has Mexico abandoned (as heard in the President's and Health Minister's speeches) its vaccination program?

Abandoned? How do you know they are not offering vaccinations?

In the area I live they are completing the 2nd round of sinovac for all folks over 50 as I type this. AZ was offered at some centers in GDL. My friends got both doses of Pfyzer in Playa.

The covid stoplight system is different than the USA. It is based on hospital beds available. Since there is not a lot of beds it is easy to slip into RED.

Distribution here is not American style, with jabs available in almost any pharmacy. You can't go to Dr. Simi for your shot.

Since the vaccines are proving not as effective as advertised, it wouldn't surprise me the government would pull back.

The vaccination program has not been abandoned.

Here in Zihuatanejo, in the state of Guerrero, everyone over 40, educators, medical workers and pregnant women have been fully vaccinated. Those between 30 and 39 received their first dose of the AstraZenica vaccine in July and will receive the second one in September, the dates have already been announced. Those 18 to 29 will start receiving their vaccinations Monday.

Many of the villages in the more remote areas of Guerrero received one dose vaccines with everyone being done at once so everyone is covered.

Mexico is moving forward well toward meeting their goal of having everyone (who is willing) be vaccinated by October.

Where did you get this information? It is NOT true.

Mexico has not abandoned the vaccination process. However, it is extremely slow for a North American country. As you can see by the chart below that only 32% of Mexicans have received two doses and 20% have received just one dose.

Hospitals are again filling up and are full in some cities. The president said today that he refuses to make CDMX a red light and it will stay in orange, this is to protect the economy.

The U.S. has agreed to send an additional 8.5 million doses but I am not sure why Mexico isn't buying them as it is not for a lack of money.
