I crossed at Mexicali and drove down highway 5 along the east cape side. 100% paved. Very smooth and stress free drive.
Weather is great.
Desert is not as green as last year.
Blowing every day - upper teens to low 20’s.
It’s not quite a ghost town but it’s very quiet.
Campground is mostly empty. Maybe 10% occupied. Spots available in the front row.
I’m at Casa Verde Rv lot - (Just me and a family of 3).
Hotels and casitas are empty.
Beaches are quiet.
Most restaurants are closed.
Businesses have hand sanitizer and take your temp - everywhere.
Why can’t we do that in HR?
All in all it’s very enjoyable.
IMO - It’s a good year to come down.

So you are complaining about how people won't follow restrictions here but at the same time are doing international travel?

Most people are wearing masks. Military and National Guard Checkpoints are. The inspector and medical assistant taking temps at the Agricultural station / state crossing near Guerrero Negro are wearing them. Petro station attendants wearing them and all of the eateries I've been at along the way have also been masked up. Most markets have auto temp taking machine and sanitizer as well as mask requirements. In LV/ET/EL everyone seems to be wearing masks when in proximity and in stores / service providers. On the beaches instructors have been good about wearing them, students and other visitors have been good at distancing. It's been really good.

Key Information for Travelers to Mexico

Travelers should avoid all travel to Mexico.
Travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19.

Before you travel, get tested with a viral test 1–3 days before your trip. Do not travel if you are waiting for test results, test positive, or are sick. Follow all entry requirements for your destination and provide any required or requested health information.
During travel, wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet from people who are not traveling with you, wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer, and watch your health for signs of illness.
Before traveling back to the United States, get tested with a viral test 1–3 days before travel. Follow all destination and airline recommendations or requirements.
After you travel, get tested 3–5 days after travel AND stay home for 7 days after travel.
If you don't get tested, it's safest to stay home for 10 days.
If you had a known exposure to COVID-19 while traveling, delay travel, quarantine from other people, get tested, and monitor your health.

Travel and COVID-19
Travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Airports, bus stations, train stations, and rest stops are all places travelers can be exposed to the virus. These are also places where it can be hard to social distance. If you travel, take steps before, during, and after travel to keep yourself and others from getting COVID-19.

Delay travel if you are waiting for test results, test positive, are sick, or if you have been around someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days. Find out more about When to Delay Travel.


Before You Travel
Travelers should avoid all travel to Mexico. If you must travel, talk to your doctor ahead of travel, especially if you are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Get tested with a viral test 1–3 days before your trip, keep a copy of your results with you during travel.

Do not travel if your test result is positive; immediately isolate yourself, and follow public health recommendations.

If traveling by air, check if your airline requires any health information, test results, or other documents. Follow entry requirements or restrictions at your destination which might include testing, quarantine, and providing contact information. Check with your destination's Office of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Health or the US Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, Country Information page for details about entry requirements and restrictions for arriving travelers. If you test positive on arrival, you might be required to isolate. You might be prevented from returning to the United States as scheduled.

If you get sick in Mexico, you might need medical care. Plan ahead and learn more about Getting Health Care Abroad.


During Travel
If you travel, take the following steps to protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

Stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who is not traveling with you. It's important to do this everywhere—both indoors and outdoors.
Wear a mask to keep your nose and mouth covered when you are in shared spaces, including when using public transportation.
Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).
Avoid contact with anyone who is sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Do not travel if you are sick.
Get tested with a viral test 1–3 days before traveling back to the United States.


After You Travel
You might have been exposed to COVID-19 during your travels. You might feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can be contagious without symptoms and can spread the virus to others.

After you travel, take the following steps to protect others from getting sick for 14 days after travel:

Get tested 3–5 days after your trip AND stay home for 7 days after travel.
Even if you test negative, stay home for the full 7 days.
If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
If you don't get tested, it's safest to stay home for 10 days after travel.
Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.
Always follow state and local recommendations or requirements related to travel.
Take these actions to protect others from getting sick:

Stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who did not travel with you, particularly in crowded areas. It’s important to do this everywhere—both indoors and outdoors.
Wear a mask to keep your nose and mouth covered when you are in shared spaces outside of your home, including when using public transportation.
Wear a mask and ask any household members who did not travel with you to wear masks in shared spaces inside your home.
Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).
Watch your health: Look for symptoms of COVID-19, and take your temperature if you feel sick.
See CDC's After You Travel page for more information.

Other Considerations
If you get sick with COVID-19 or test positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 while abroad, you might not be permitted to return to the United States until you can end isolation. If you are exposed to someone with COVID-19 during travel, you might be quarantined and not be permitted to return to the United States until your quarantine is lifted.

Clinician Information
Clinicians should obtain a detailed travel history for patients with symptoms of COVID-19 infection. If you suspect that a traveler has COVID-19, see Information for Healthcare Professionals about Coronavirus (COVID-19) for information on evaluating, reporting, clinical care guidance, and infection control.
