As we move forward into 2022 we have seen a major decrease in COVID-19 cases allowing Los Cabos to move into the green light on the local alert system.
OMICRON led to a spike in COVID cases beyond any other wave of cases before, tripling the third wave in mid 2021.

Fortunately this did not translate into a significant increase in hospitalizations or fatalities as most cases were mild with cold and flu like symptoms.
Tourism is at its highest since the onset of COVID and we still require mask wearing, temperature checks and safe distancing in public spaces although bars, restaurants and other businesses that are non-essential are now allowed to operate at 80% capacity with essential services now able to operate at 100%. Currently there are 176 active cases that have been detected in Los Cabos by government health authorities.
Second dose vaccination has begun for those over 18 years of age. Online sign up is available for a third booster vaccination although the date for this has not yet been established. If you require either of these please check Delegacion de Bienestar BCS on Facebook for updates, links and requirements.
Free testing continues to be available Monday to Friday at the Centro de Salud in front of Coppel on Manuel Doblado street. There are also free testing points in Cabo San Lucas. Testing is also readily available at most local laboratories and hospitals. Let’s all continue to stay safe and healthy.
