Covid-19 Updates

Our San Pancho community and the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic


Last update November 26, 2020

The state of Nayarit and San Pancho remains in a level yellow, with the latest report showing 538 positive patients, 5,617 people recovering from the virus and 932 deaths in the state of Nayarit. On the 7th of October, the governor of Nayarit re-opened all of the gyms, casinos and beaches. He is requiring businesses to operate at a maximum capacity of 30% and to take the measures needed to prevent the spread of the virus, such as masks, hand sanitizer and maintain distance.

According to U.S. Embassy and Consulate in Mexico, “The number of confirmed and suspected COVID-19 cases reached its peak nationwide by mid-July and began a decrease that continued for eight weeks.  This decline stopped by the second week of September and plateaued for four weeks.  In the second week of October, a slight increase was recorded, which has continued to this date.” 

Wearing face masks in public is now mandatory in 24 of the 31 Mexican states, including Nayarit and Jalisco. A number of high-tourist destinations, including the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta, have partnered with the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) to earn the Safe Travels Stamp hoping to reassure tourists that visiting those places will be safe.

In San Pancho, our beautiful beach is open! All businesses and restaurants have opened. Officially sanctioned hours are 10am to 3pm, daily. Most local businesses are wearing masks, as well as following protocols and regulations.

On a local support level, Entreamigos continues its much needed distribution of food, children necessity items and even dog food. The non-profit will remain a center of support and education for small groups for children that need tutoring and help with their homework. If you can contribute any amount it will be welcomed. Contributing on a monthly or yearly basis is even better. Right now they are the only entity in town providing sustenance to those without jobs or support. Check out their “ways to support” page to get involved!
