December Dispensa

Happy Holiday Greetings!!  Even though this s a different season for most of us there is a reason to be optomistic. We had our dispensa today along with Christmas hampers and a visit from Santa.  Most of the children were happy to see Santa and we got lots of photos with him. Clients were happy with their dispensas and hampers and left with smiling faces.

FYI

Holidays already at odds with coronavirus protocols in Yucatan By Yucatán Expat Life – November 15, 2020 42SHARESFacebookTwitterWhatsappLinkedinSubscribe Christmas shoppers crowd downtown as Yucatan tries to revive its economy during the coronavirus pandemic.

One Airbnb property in Santa Ana had a van and driver idling outside for hours while guests socialized. All this is great news for the economy unless, of course, the crowds cause a spike in coronavirus cases, and Yucatan loses ground before the epidemiological traffic light. New infections have been reported an average of 65 a day for the last two weeks. That’s an improvement over daily new cases in the middle of October, when they often topped 100. The public appears itching to escape the confines of home. La Jornada Maya reported a healthy increase in Christmas shopping, but also noted sloppy behavior. Social distancing was non-existent and face coverings were often found to be improperly used. Long lines of people were observed waiting to enter department stores and smaller shops, as well as for ATMs and banks. Businesses were generally good about applying hygiene measures, taking temperatures and passing around hand gel. Disinfectant mats were commonly found at entrances. Streets, closed in the morning to traffic, were opened and clogged with...
