Well, we sure didn’t think Spring would roll into Puerto Peñasco like this. As we followed word of the coronavirus (COVID-19) that has been spreading across the globe since early this year, and knew first cases of it were detected in Mexico on just February 28th, our focus turned more towards revisiting how to wash our hands and twisting our arms into an elbow cough.
Yet, here we are. Not three full weeks after the first cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Mexico, we’ve gone beyond washing hands and not hugging or kissing people when we greet them (which culturally here has been quite a chore) to recommendations from State and Municipal officials to show solidarity with efforts of Health authorities by Staying at Home “Quédate En Casa”.
The health campaign #QuedateEnCasa was launched by the Sonoran Health Department, under instruction of Governor Claudia Pavlovich Arellano, this week in response to the first confirmed COVID-19 case in Sonora on Monday, March 16th.
In showing solidarity with health steps of the various authorities, several restaurants are offering curbside pick-up, take-out, and delivery options. Some establishments in town are choosing to remain open until further notice, some by spacing folks out a bit more than usual, and all stepping up rigorous cleaning.
So, this week’s rundown is more about supporting our local economy by considering options and trying the various dishes Puerto Peñasco still has to offer! We are working to compile as much info from what we’ve found so far, though be sure to check with your favorite spot to see what they are offering in dining room / take-out/ pick-up and how we can help each other stay afloat. Also #washyourhands #quedateencasa Let’s get through this together…though apart.
