and you cannot go to the tianguis either... talking about thinking in a box... old folks live with relatives and they can do the shopping for them... the ones that do not have family can starve.. ha ha

So if gov offices are closed how do you pay your water, taxes and car registration.  Will the discount be extended? If you are over 60 how will these payments be handled?


The notice from Chapala says Government offices with "atenciones de ventanillas" remain open.  Public service windows.   

The discounts for SIMAPA and the Predial are through end of Feb.  These restrictions are thru end of Jan.  

There is also an online portal for the water and tax bills.

How to you go to Chapala to pay even f they are open if over 60´s are supposed to stay home?  I am leaving Jalisco on the 28th, I wonder if I can still get to the airport.. 😀

I'm guessing the odds of you getting stopped or checked are about the same as getting eaten by the lake crocodile :)

This is all well and good but why in the name of sanity is the use of MASKS, used properly  not mandatory?   No one should be allowed on the busses without one or in any shop.  Time to stop this MACHO BS.  

It is my understanding it already is and Spencer's "Panic button'" thread confirms that.

Why do you think not?  Of course getting people to do it is a whole other matter.

There are no mask requirements. It would be better if ordered because it would hide the pig's lipstick.

I watched and took notes: Alfaro started and ended his 38+-minute press conference saying that these new restrictions are in addition to the sanitary protocols that have not been modified. He listed face masks, social distancing, hand-washing, staying away from crowded or public places, and contacting a health professional should you experience symptoms.

Nay be if they enforced the rules that are already in place  , iyt would help.. People are still partying when they come from Guadaljara and Chapala does not do anything about it so covid continues so they want the old folks to stay home when the young ones are the ones propagating it... The part that is pretty sure about this one is that they will not enforce that either..

So many of the usual negative people on here,  There is very little that can’t be done on line these day..,Can’t you just for once pay your bills on line, shop on line.   Take care of yourself, do your part to stop the spread.. So many of you are so worried about what other people do and trying to come up with reasons this lockdown isn’t going to work.  You would feel much better about your life if you tried to think positive thoughts.

                         VIRUS  DON’T TRAVEL, PEOPLE DO

I walked by a couple of restaurants this morning and it's obvious no one is checking age IDs.  I went into a small frutería and same story. 

fyi, the Ajijic malecon and adjacent park are closed. 

This is the reason the virus is spreading.. Did you really have to go out this morning checking up on the restaurants and stores,, and what’s happening at malecon.

What part of “Stay home stop the spread don’t you understand”. ?

@TelsZ4   Open air exercise is important.  I wear a mask.  I had to walk by 2 restaurants to get to the frutería and can see their tables from street.  I live 1/2 block from the malecon, it is how I normally walk to town.  I walked along the paseo today instead.  

On my walk through town, I never got within 20 feet of anyone.  It was just after 9am.

I needed some food so I went into a fruteria to get 2 items, never got within 6 feet of anyone, other than the cashier; we were both masked and the encounter took appx. 10 seconds as I carry exact change.  

I have not eaten at a restaurant since March (neither inside or out); pre-covid we ate out almost daily.  I have not flown since March; pre-covid we flew every 6-8 weeks.  

The greatest threat of spread is sustained contact with an infected person....most medical experts think at least 10 to 20 minutes.  

I am very careful, but I am not paranoid.
