CDC Advises Travelers Not to Travel to Mexico


The Center for Disease Control is asking travelers should avoid all travel to Mexico due to the high numbers of COVID-19.

Mexico is still struggling with high COVID-19 active cases and the number of deaths is increasing. All of this is happening when the vaccination process continues to go slower than in the United States.

Because of the current situation in Mexico even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants and should avoid all travel to Mexico. If you must travel to Mexico, get fully vaccinated before travel. All travelers should wear a mask, stay 6 feet from others, avoid crowds, and wash their hands.

You do not have to get tested before leaving the United States unless your destination requires it. You do not have to self-quarantine after you arrive in the United States.

For those that are fully vaccinated, it is recommended during travel that people should wear a mask over their nose and mouth when in public. Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who is not traveling with you. Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).

Accosted to the U.S. Mexico Embassy, the states of Guanajuato, Puebla, and Queretaro report the highest number of active cases.  As of April 6, Puebla is the only state reporting a hospital occupancy rate above 30 percent for regular COVID-19 beds.  Mexican health authorities reiterated calls for people to follow prevention measures, including leaving home only for essential activities, maintaining social distance, washing hands frequently, and wearing masks (particularly indoors).

Schools remain closed in nearly all states. Effective January 26, all airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test (PCR or antigen) taken within three calendar days of travel.  Alternatively, travelers to the United States who have been sick and recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel may provide proof of a positive COVID-19 viral test along with documentation from a licensed health care provider confirming their recovery.
