The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to abate in Mexico, and as conditions have improved, the federal government has gradually eased COVID-19–related restrictions and lifted them entirely in 19 of the nation’s 32 states in accordance with the biweekly four-tiered traffic light epidemiological monitoring system.
The federal government recently designated 19 states in green status (indicating a full return to normal activities) for the June 7–20, 2021, report, thus making the four weeks encompassing the current report a notable period for the country since the government first implemented the system in June 2020. In the previous report, nine states were in yellow status, the second-least restrictive tier. One of those states, Tamaulipas, has recently been redesignated in orange status, one tier below red status (under which only essential activities are permitted), while other states have recently reported increases in their daily case averages. No state has been in red status since March 2021.
