CDC issues warning

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a warning against all travel to Mexico. The CDC issued a level 4 advisory, warning that there is a “very high level of Covid-19 in Mexico.” “Travelers should avoid all travel to Mexico. Travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading Covid-19,” the health protection agency said. Mexico’s confirmed case tally is currently just over 1 million while the official death toll is 102,739. Both totals are widely considered to be significant undercounts due to the low testing rate. The CDC also warned that people who choose to travel and become infected while abroad may be denied reentry to the United States. “If you are exposed to someone with Covid-19 during travel, you might be quarantined and not permitted to return to the United States until 14 days after your last known exposure,” its advisory said. The CDC’s warning came just five days before Thanksgiving and as case numbers in the United States reach record levels. It was perhaps too late to dissuade many Americans from taking a short break in warmer weather south of the border. An analysis by the insurance company Allianz published last week found that Cancún, Quintana Roo, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur and Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, are, in that order, the top three international destinations for U.S. Thanksgiving tourists. The risk of coronavirus infection in Quintana Roo and Baja California Sur is currently yellow light “medium,” according to the federal government’s stoplight system, while it is orange light “high” in Jalisco. There is undoubtedly a risk of coronavirus infection in Cancún, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta – all three destinations have recorded thousands of confirmed cases – for United States tourists but the risk that Americans will bring the virus with them would appear to be greater given the recent explosion in case numbers in the U.S. Furthermore, Mexico doesn’t require travelers to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test in order to enter the country and there is no quarantine requirement. The CDC, however, said in its advisory that people who must travel should get tested one to three days before departure. It also warned people not to travel if they are waiting for test results, test positive or are sick. Mexico is in a tricky situation because it already has its own major coronavirus problems – and obviously doesn’t want to import more cases – but at the same time tourism revenue is sorely needed. Tourism usually contributes to almost 10% of Mexico’s GDP but the sector collapsed earlier this year due to the pandemic and associated restrictions. A recovery has begun but the ability of hotels, restaurants and other tourism-oriented businesses to recoup their losses is limited due to state-mandated occupancy and capacity restrictions designed to ensure that social distancing is viable and the spread of the virus is controlled.

RE: Border Restrictions Until Late December

Tallyho. Canadians returning to Canada may NOT enter the USA. To quote a cbp official: If you do not have a US passport you cannot cross. There are some exceptions but they do not apply to tourists or RV'rs. Examples are: essential workers,enjoyment, medical appointment. Canadians may fly in with no restrictions. When the border first closed in March the USA was allowing Canadians to return to Canada. Not now.

RE: Cant get parts shipped from USA to Canada

I should have added that most Monaco's have 2 latches in the door. An upper and a lower. There is a rid that connects them and they need to be adjusted so they work in unison.

RE: Cant get parts shipped from USA to Canada

Have you gone to one of the Monaco forums to find out who makes that door handle. It is probably trimark. They might ship it to Canada. also has some. There is a Monaco dealer in Calgary. Unless you have a very old unit any decent Canadian dealer can get you that part. Be prepared to pay dearly.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

There could be complications A Canadian senator is lobbying the Trudeau goverment to require returning Canadians to be quaranteed near the point of entry . I don't really understand her motive but Senators tend to be "different"

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

There are now 3 companies transporting your rv to the usa while you fly. One is out of Blaine,another in Quebec and one in Ontario. All are fully booked. As it gets colder more transporters will appear. I make no comment as to whether this is right,wrong or dangerous.

RE: Safety in Puerto Penasco

Every city or large town in Mexico have labs. You do need a referral. Many are modern first class. They will email the results. However with your medical needs I would stay home.

RE: Two Medical Crises their Resolution and Costs

No public health system is perfect. In many areas of Canada a non emergency mri could take 3 months. Knee or hip from one to 2 years.Not enough specialists so they admit foreign Docs Some are great but many should not have a license. In some provinces Goverments have reduced health care budgets.With the Covid crisis the systems are in chaos.

Canadians still crossing into the USA

Recently the Canadian Snowbird org. stated that 30% of their snowbirds are still going to travel south. I was quite surprised but after reading the article I can understand their reasoning. Many stated that due to age in a few years travel would be difficult or they might not live that long. So this could be their last hurrah. Some were flying to the warm destination while others were shipping a vehicle and just flying across the border. In another thread many posters criticized this as circumventing the rules. I disagree. There are no rules forbidding flying from Canada to the USA. There are no rules that prohibit shipping a vehicle from Canada to the USA. We can all disagree as to whether they are taking a chance on being infected but I chose to think that perhaps they feel one trip (maybe their last) to their favorite warm spot is a good idea in spite of the danger.

RE: Flying to the USA and shipping car

Forget false statistics. When hospitals have zero icu beds and thereare bodies piled up in portable morgue the reality trumps your survival statistic. It is also getting worse by the day.

Flying to the USA and shipping car I saw this article a few days ago but you may have to register to see it. In case that happens I will post the abridged version. Snowbirds in Eastern Canada are shipping their vehicles to Buffalo or Detroit and flying via Helicopter or private flight. Then they drive to their winter homes in Florida. BC snowbirds could do this as well. There are companies that transport vehicles to the USA for American car dealers. I thought about doing something similar.

Dave. I too had a chuckle.

Epi,s area available. But not in small towns. That private hospital should be able to order one.

RE: 911 emergency calls in Mexico

Good advice Navegator. Maybe travelers should also check to see if their cell phone will reach Mexico 911. There are also 3 digit numbers that can reach police or the toll road emergency service. They can reach ambulance service. Often they have English speakers. If you are in distress just stop a Mexican vehicle. They will assist.

My bad. Of course I meant vaccine. A Freudian slip

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

The fun in distributing the vaccine is still to come. I would not have any faith that the administration can handle the task.

RE: 911 emergency calls in Mexico

Chris. I certainly do not expect English anywhere. But when Sonora started the 911 service they were advertising that they had English speaking operators. I bet if you surveyed any rv park in Mexico less than 10% would understand Spanish. Even less if you surveyed tourists in a hotel. I only mentioned no Spanish so people would not think they could get help in an emergency. Usually there are English speaking Mexicans wherever you travel in Mexico.

RE: 911 emergency calls in Mexico

I tried the 911 in Sonora. Would not work from a landlines. I called from my cell and at that time no one was available that spoke English. I do not know if 911 would work from a foreign cell.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

The unclosed border may change. The state of Chihuahua is lobbying the Feds to enforce the closing of borders. Do far this is falling on deaf ears. The fellow who shipped his motorhome is nuts. The cost is outrageous. If an American complains they could sieze his unit. If he enters Mexico the USA will not let him return

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

As much as it is killing me to stay home in the cold we will be staying put. Things are changing quickly. It is so bad in some of the hot spots that it would be next to impossible to isolate. If you did get sick the health systems would not be able to handle the volumes of sick people.Anyone thinking of going south should wait and monitor the situation. Maybe it will improve by February.
