TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2020  —  #4072

Note:  I’m getting too many emails, “do this”, “don’t do that”.   The objective of the BPE will be concentrated on businesses and the real-time health and welfare of the citizens and x-pats of the East Cape.  Restaurants, if you’re doing To-Go, send me your menu and I’ll try to post.  One good suggestion, please don’t come to BCS until we get an all clear!  If you need to express yourself, please use FaceBook.

a.  Websites:  discoverbaja.com  for road info.  I have received 6 emails from folks driving north crossing at TJ, Mexicali, & Calexico (horses mouth) and NO problems.  Now if anyone has had an issue would like to hear that story

b  Here’s an official US website that will give the latest Travel info for US Citizens from the US Embassy in Mexico City.
From here choose “Mexico,” and then select the latest Embassy Messages – Alerts.
– Alaska’s governor just mandated starting March 25, a two week quarantine for all international and interstate travelers entering Alaska punishable up to $25,000 fine and/or one year jail time.

c.  East Cape Health Center is watching the following website for accurate information.
https://coronavirus.bcs.gob.mx/.   IF you review you will see only 2 cases have been identified in Cabo both were in the hospital for a short stay and recuperating at home. Please check this census daily and it will calm down the stories you may be hearing. – charlene.wenger@gmail.com

d.  East Cape Health Center Announcement so many questions are surfacing about COVID-19 so I wanted to help clarify our protocols:  IF you develop symptoms of headache, sore throat, dry cough, fever, muscle and joint pain ( more than normal ) let us know and we can advise you clinic: 624-124-8203/emergency: 624-160-1997. We have one room designated for screening anyone with infectious symptoms and we can rule out other infections or viruses with tests in our lab.
If you have traveled Internationally or in the US ( Washington, California or NY ) or have close contact with anyone who has tested positive, we can arrange testing if it is indicated. Just like everywhere in the world, Mexico has the capability to test suspicious cases and treat the symptoms at home. IF hospitalization is indicated Hospital H+ has reassured me they can handle hospitalized patients in regular rooms or ICU.
Please keep my number handy 624-157-0081 and if you have information for me please contact me by email: charlene.wenger@gmail.com
