This comes on the heels of the destination announcing the return of 100% of U.S. flights and the return of the first cruise ship to Puerto Progreso. This is the first time a Mexican designation has achieved a Level 1 since the State Department began issuing warnings for Mexico divided by state.

The alert level indicates that Covid-19 risk in the state of Yucatan is low, but it does not mean that tourism facilities are changing their protocols. Masks are still required in public spaces, and hotels, restaurants, tours, markets, etc., will still run at reduced capacity with social distancing and sanitization measures in place.
