Last week, the governor of the State of Nayarit urged travelers to #stayathome and reschedule their visits to Riviera Nayarit, adding that public beach access points will be monitored to avoid the grouping of people and reduce the risk of spread and contagion.

That said, there are, at this date, 1,094 confirmed cases in Mexico, with five cases in Riviera Nayarit. To avoid further risk to the destination, the State of Nayarit and the Banderas Bay Hotel and Motel Association are adhering to strict international guidelines and protocols as it relates to sanitation as well as the prevention, detection, and treatment of many diseases.

“The situation evolves daily and we are ready to respond to the needs of the community and the industry,” said Marc Murphy, Riviera Nayarit CVB’s managing director, in a letter released yesterday detailing the efforts put in place to prevent the spread of the virus in the community.

Additionally, Murphy stressed that local and state authorities are in continuous communication with the private sector, associations and tourism suppliers to review potential risks, determine measures, review best practices and assess measures in place.
