    All cinemas, nightclubs, bars and casinos are closed.

    Schools are closed but it was almost Easter Holidays anyway. My eldest (15) has daily video conferences with teachers and classmates, my youngest (10) has homework sent through by email daily.

    There is an advisory to stay at home, not an order. Most people are staying at home anyway.

    60,000 workers have already lost their jobs, 44,000 hotel rooms are closed. So there is a lot less movement in any case.

    Cases in the State are updated daily. Yesterday's (March 23) figures are below

    It is quite the dilemma for Mexico. I could see why they would not want foreigners visiting when the majority of cases are from visitors. And who knows how many of the mexican cases are tied to those visitors (probably most). But when the economy is driven off of the visits and it results in that many people losing their jobs yikes.

    My heart breaks for all the workers who’ve been sent home.

    The number of people who have lost their jobs is staggering. My heart aches for them, especially the wonderful staff workers of Temptation.

    Very similar here in Nevada with all the casinos closed.

    Over 200,000....yes that many... including myself, lost their jobs.

    This will be a year many of us will have to recover from for many years to come. But the family is safe and staying at home.

    I must say I am impressed with the number of school closures in Mexico BUT with learning electronically already. The schools here in NV have been down for 4 weeks. They are trying electronic schooling on April 1st.
