Lots of USA citizens living here take their Sonoran plated car back to the USA.  No problem.

Marigot, I would guess, 90% of the autos, approaching the Mariposa crossing from the downtown ramp/street are Sonoran plated. They being to the right of the pay bypass lane it is easy to see, prior to separation of the lanes.

My post was in response to BCato’s post, which seemed to imply a lot of Mexicans were crossing going northbound by referring to the Sonoran plated cars.  I was just stating that gringos drive Sonoran plated cars too.
I am well aware of the percentage of MX plated vehicles crossing northbound and am fine with it.

It very well could be those are people employed in the US, and that is being considered essential travel. Maybe they have documentation that proves they are employed in the US.

I thought your observation was accurate, based on what I saw recently.


I was just trying to find a reason WHY.......

If you are an american resident and have immigration paperwork you will be able to enter the USA. Car plates have nothing to do with it as far as I know.

When entering Mexico, you and your paperwork will be checked at all airports and roadside immigration stations unless you try to bypass them illegally. Again, license plates have nothing to do with immigration.

Boats, don't know, can't help you.

There are several exemptions to the non-essential travel rule that have been published online. First one is US citizens and lawful permanent residents returning to the USA.

Also included are those traveling for medical purposes, travel to attend educational institutions, traveling to work in the USA, emergency response and public health, lawful cross border trade, official government travel, etc.

Non-essential travel is tourism or recreational in nature.

I have had a number of calls from those asking if they can go to Mexico for Thanksgiving or to their house in Mexico. I just tell them what the rules are and they have to decide what essential means to them.

According to Opinion Sonora, both public and private hospitals in Hermosillo are now at 95% capacity, due to Covid 19. Some hospitals, like San Jose and Lincona are already full. One of the IMSS hospitals is also full and one other is at 97%.

Covid is an odd thing. I've traveled back and forth into Mexico repeatedly this year. Family emergencies and work have had me flying back and forth across the USA more that ever this year. I've stayed healthy. I always social distance, wash my hands, and wear a masks.

Last week I started to feel really ill. Wednesday, went to Tucson to be tested. Decided to quarantine at home until I get the results, feeling worse each day. Got them today, I tested positive for Corona Virus.

Calculating that I contracted it within 7 days of last Tuesday, I either got it shopping at the Home Depot (of course wearing a mask), running into Walgreens (wearing a mask), eating at a nice restaurant (not wearing the mask while I ate), walking past someone at Canoa Ranch while walking my dogs (wearing a mask) or getting something out of my truck when someone I didn't know just approached me and started talking (no, I wasn't wearing I mask.. I was outside by myself... or at least I was). So, who knows?

So, I have heaviness in my chest, but am breathing okay for the last 8 days. I have cough, headache, whole body achiness and am very tired (I took 3 naps yesterday)... but have no high temperature. I can taste and smell. It feels like the nasty Dengue Fever (obviously without the high temperature) I had in Guaymas about 8 years ago.

I'm optimistic, as I'm an otherwise active healthy person. Today, I feel a little better than yesterday, so perhaps it's on the back side of running it's course. I will stay put in my home for another 10 days (just exiting to walk the dogs in the desert), provided I don't show symptoms. I'll seek medical advice about re-testing.

I'm 35 miles north of the border for reference.

If you translate more of the article, it also says the government is reporting that occupancy jumped from 41 to 44% on Nov 21st, or half of what Opiniion just stated a a couples of paragraphs above in the same article.


Clear as mud, as usual.

I really appreciate the fact that Mexico is 53rd on the list of 53 countries in the world where it's best to get Covid.

Its BS imo. Look at the deaths per million and there are 7 countries worse than Mexico including the USA.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

This announcement is warning Mexicans not to return home as they normally would during the holidays, just like they are telling US Citizens to not celebrate Thanksgiving and Xmas as we normally have have always done pre Covid.

Belgium has nearly 65% more deaths than Mexico per million, and no one is telling you not to go to Brussels.
