The states in red are:
Baja California Sur,
Orange traffic light
For the states on an orange COVID-19 traffic light, the official asked to be “prudent when leaving for work, we must make adjustments in our social and daily labor life, in order to progress little by little to continue reducing the risk in which we are contagious ”.
He recommended the use of face masks and shields to avoid coronavirus infections, as well as to continue with the healthy distance measures.

Yellow traffic light
The general director of Health Promotion announced that Campeche is the first state in Mexico to reach the yellow color of the COVID-19 traffic light, with statistics that represent conditions of medium to moderate risk.
