As mentioned in an article writing by the Nationa Geographic about ¨What happens to coronavirus COVID 19 in warmer spring temperatures?¨  Mentions that similar viruses like the coronavirus tend to subside in warmer months or climate.

We do keep taking our precautions and keeping our boat rentals in Playa Del Carmen clean and disinfected.  Minimizing any risk that might exist of the coronavirus in Riviera Maya.  We understand that many airlines have canceled their flights.  That different countries have banned traveling anywhere. We just hope that a cure gets found soon to return to a normal life.  Even though people still coming to the area, we would love to have our normal tourism back in Playa del Carmen and The Riviera Maya.

Also, the United States has closed the embassy in Playa del Carmen.  Not wanting any of their employees here as a precaution with no announced date of reopening yet.

The world is having a major effect and we can only hope that things go back to normal the sooner the better.  That a cure is found and that the people get it soon.
