The Mexican Government's website has announced that Baja California is the only state in Mexico that has been upgraded to orange, after having been downgraded to yellow like other regions of the country.

The exponential increase in cases in Baja California has been the reason for the change of this color, since only between Thursday and Friday there was an 11% increase in active cases, going from one thousand 577 to one thousand 747 in 24 hours.

According to health authorities, being under the orange color in the epidemiological traffic light chart implies the reduction of community mobility, the operation of economic and social activities will be at 50% of capacity, the educational model will operate under the new normality according to what was established by the SEP, the use of masks is mandatory in all public spaces.

While Baja California is under the orange traffic light, 22 other states are under yellow and nine others are under green, so the goal now is that our state does not return to red, reduce the number of active cases and does not have to return to health measures as in the beginning of the pandemic.
