This is BS now they are going to tax the part time homeowner and not the tourists with reservations and are limited on hours for entrance.

Vacation (second) homeowners who do not live in Puerto Peñasco full-time, but own property NOTE: From July 18th – Aug 1st This includes a rapid-test of at least one person in the car administered by Red Cross staff (cost of about $25 US to be paid by you (to assist with purchase of more tests) SPECIFIC HOURS FOR VACATION HOMEOWNERS: 8 AM – 4 PM (otherwise filter is open 6 am – 10 pm)

Exactly what someone predicted. The tax is on part time residents who are also vacation users, of their own personally owned residence, not just vacation homeowners or visitors. If they get into taxing HOMEOWNERS in any way it would have to include ALL residents, including locals. The 'specific guidelines' are the key to creating an income stream per visit from all property owners who use their own property for personal use, not just income from renters using declared and inspected rental units. As I read it owners who are a permanent resident of , say Hermosillo, are liable for this payment as natives, when they come to visit their second Mexican home.

So now the city will get a payment from several categories classified as visitors in one way or another, even owners of the property when 'visiting'.. It looks like everyone except full time residents will pay each time they pass.

I bet a nickle there will be a permanent structure constructed on that site soon. Note it is conveniently lodged between two large privately owned business structures. Remember it is for the health and benefit of the community. Visitors should be willing to assist the local government and not complain.

I'm leaning that way too Roberto. The new rules for the Aug 1 opening from what I can understand it appears the thermal cameras are staying to re-open the beaches??? Anyone else reading it like that too? No chance that whole operation is being packed up July 31. Especially now that they have monetized it. This is a shit show at it's finest with poor leadership on both sides of the border. AMLO had the same shitty approach, wait, it will go away. In April this fool was still out in public telling people to hug one another. We are where we're at for a reason. I semi half joked that we wouldn't see Rocky Point this year and every day it's starting to look more likely.

If there is a filter for beach access and you are staying beachfront , Sandy beach, Mirador , Las chonchas, will you not be able to access the beach directly in front of where you are staying?

cmae back through today with my partner and dogs. What a CF the sanitation station was today. When I came down July 3 it was organized and everyone knew their job. As a resident today I happened to be the fifth car and I had to have a rapid test. What a joke Paid $700 MX by card only. Young boy? from red cross pricked my finger and dropped my blood on what looked like a home pregnancy test plastic strip. He told me to go outside the tent and my results would be ready in five minutes. Twenty five minutes later I asked and he didn't remember doing me . He then said yes you can go you are ok. As I thought about this later this afternoon I realized that the test was never labeled. Don't know if I should laugh, shake my head or cry.

Can anyone clarify?

Cholla Bay
  • Preventive closures depending on high/low tides and # of people
  • Security booth at entrance to Cholla to assist with monitoring people headed to beach areas Pelican Point (pedestrians only, no vehicle entrance. JJ’s – entry depending on tides, preventing large # of people
  • Cholla estuary area (prior to security booth), to have ongoing monitoring and only 1 access point. Pedestrian access only, no vehicle entrance.

So this means absolutely no vehicles inside Cholla Bay itself? I'm so confused.

Joe,
Vehicles or allowed in Cholla maybe just not on the beaches. You should be fine.

It's to control the beach access, so there's not a 1,000 people sitting in the water in front of JJ's, the Estuary and at Tucson beach
which would violate their X amount of people per X square meters they outlined in their press releases.

On Sandy Beach and Playa Hermosa they are setting up shade structures arranged to enforce the distancing outlined in the release for
water access. Not doing that in Cholla now.

Pedestrian access only at Tucson beach, maybe the road in front of JJ's other than boat launchers? and the estuary access,
as you start entering Cholla at the equipment yard is what I read.

Life do you know where they currently test for the virus, I did read the testing machine they were going to use on Norte Americano's is being moved into town for the locals and they are in uproar of paying the 700 pesos from the comments.
I also read last night that they were up to 59 cases of covid. TIA.

They just opened the clinic down the street from Burger king on Benito Juarez see the map ( red X is the location and Burger King is on Northwest side of this map) this is what I was told and it's packed with people I have not been by so cannot confirm 100% but source is good

Just to clarify where it's located in the plaza with Ricky's Wings the shop to the left of it there was a vacant shop that was already built out so they converted to the test clinic

What makes it confusing is after last years Semana Santa debacle they had already enacted much of the same rules in CB. The'd already closed off the road down to Tucson more than a year ago. Villa really tries to limit the amount of assholes that come and set up a day tent and chairs right in the middle of the boat ramp and who gives two shits about Barracho flats.... I'll just have to get Chuck and Marlene's CFE bill and claim I'm going to my house. lol this is such a fricken nightmare. If only we had competent individuals that could have tackled this problem in a more serious manner we may have been back at life already. I wonder how many more months we can drag this on???? 4, 5? Fuck it, we may as well just extend this until January or February until the vaccine arrives. Why not?!

Joe,
the names need to match on CFE bill and your ID to get access. I don't know if they're checking that closely or not.
Going the rental route is probably your only way in currently, Aug 16th? Friends and family allowed.

Yes, I read Aug 15-16th for friends and family. Yes it's a cluster, I've been trying to go since June 1st, but don't have a Perm Res card yet.
I can't go now that it's open for vacation owners like me, trying to go to San Diego for 1 week. Cholla bound Aug 8th hopefully.

Nice to hear they are supplying the medical staff here with protective supplies such as N95 masks, gloves, etc. The number of cases should start increasing with the testing clinic in place.

LÁZARO ESPINOZA WORKS IN SYNERGY WITH THE SECRETARIAT OF HEALTH FOR BENEFITS FOR PUERTO PEÑASCO

Hermosillo, Sonora, on July 14, 2020. - As part of his work in the presidency of the Special Covid-19 Commission of the State Congress, Deputy Lázaro Espinoza Mendívil asked the Ministry of Health to clarify the support that has been allocated to Puerto Peñasco to face the current pandemic.

Given this, the instance revealed that throughout the last months Two fixed ventilators, six external ventilation equipment, two electrocardiographs and seven hospital beds, among other supplies, have been assigned to the Puerto Peñasco Hospital.

It should be noted that in addition to this, the Secretary informed the deputy of the delivery of other equipment for medical personnel, highlighting 6 thousand N95 mouthguards, 542 liters of antibacterial gel, 12,600 pairs of examination gloves and 55,000 mouthguards of two and three hats.


Likewise, the deputy questioned the Secretariat about the maintenance services offered to the Puerto Peñasco hospital infrastructure, for which he was held accountable regarding the repair and care of the medical center.

Among these actions, he highlighted the care and repair of the hospital's powerhouse, the maintenance of the medical air generator, care of the fire-fighting plant, maintenance of the electric power plant, the cistern and boilers; the placement of hydro-pneumatic pumps, as well as the corrective maintenance of air conditioners.

In this way, Lázaro Espinoza Mendívil reaffirms his commitment to seeking benefits for the citizens of Puerto Peñasco and all Sonorans at the head of the Special Commission Covid-19.
