Unvaccinated cruise passengers arriving in Puerto Vallarta may not be allowed to disembark

Although the State of Jalisco ruled out additional restrictive measures, despite the rise in Covid-19 infections, Governor Enrique Alfaro Ramírez announced the application or strengthening of epidemiological monitoring in air, land, and marine terminals, as well as in businesses, to prevent the spread of Covid-19 infections.

The Governor indicated that in the face of the imminent arrival of cruise ships to Puerto Vallarta, the disembarkment will be prohibited to those passengers who have not yet been vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 or who do not pass a Covid-19 test.

“What we are going to establish with complete clarity is that people who are not vaccinated and who, in addition, do not pass a COVID-19 test, will not be able to get off a boat. If things can be done right, the return of cruise ships to Vallarta is key to economic recovery, but public health comes first. We are going to establish the rules of this protocol,” he said.

The Governor stressed that in the next few days they will have the result of the evaluation of the actions that were implemented just 12 days ago, which included the closing of bars and clubs, in addition to the cancellation of massive events, such as the October Festivities.

He took the time, once again, to encourage all Jalisco residents to register and go to get vaccinated against COVID-19, as he stressed that the number of people who do not have any of the doses is higher than that of the vaccinated population.
