Currently classified as a ‘yellow’ zone, the state of Quintana Roo was previously predicted to become a green zone in the near future due to a consistent decline in COVID-19 cases in the state. As the state continues to reduce in COVID-19 cases, Cancun specifically is showing progress towards becoming a ‘green’ area.
Vaccine processes continue to operate in order, with the elderly continuing to be served their doses. In Mexico, first-line health care workers have already received their vaccines, establishing progress and safety in the area. Subsequently, the state of Quintana Roo is seeing low numbers of hospital occupancy throughout the state.
State governor Carlos Joaquín says that the projection of becoming a ‘green’ zone means economic recovery for the state. With popular cities like Cancun, the state is a trusted destination with tourists, therefore becoming a ‘green’ area highlights more growth for tourism and tourist related projects.
“This will allow us to continue recovering our economy, recovering our jobs and generating income for Quintana Roo families,” said Joaquín.
Quintana Roo’s recent progress in controlling the spread of the virus will undoubtedly increase confidence for tourists planning spring and summer vacations.
