Editor’s note: Coronavirus cases remain in flux. Health officials advise delaying travel if you’re not fully vaccinated and caught up on boosters. This article was last updated on September 20.

If you’re planning to travel to Mexico, here’s what you’ll need to know and expect if you want to visit during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The basics

Mexico is open to travelers. You do not need to provide a negative result of a Covid-19 test or proof of vaccination to enter. You might be subject to a health screening before entering.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has lifted its requirement for travelers to test negative for Covid-19 before entering the United States. This eases passage back to the United States for American citizens, who constitute a big block of Mexico’s tourists.

What’s on offer

You’ll find incredible food, sensational beaches, charming towns and historical remains in Mexico.

While the beach resorts around Cancun attract the bulk of visitors, those who want more than a fly and flop go for Mexico City’s cultural heft, the coastline of Baja California and traditional towns such as Oaxaca.

Who can go

Mexico has had some of the world’s loosest border restrictions since the pandemic with anyone allowed to travel by air for business or leisure.

The land border between Mexico and the United States has been reopened to nonessential travel since November 8, 2021.

What are the restrictions?

There is no need to take a test before departure or undertake any form of quarantine. Those concerned they might have symptoms should ask for the Sanidad Internacional health organization.

Some Mexican states or cities might have tighter restrictions than the country at large based on local conditions. Tourists may want to inquire with their hotels or resorts about any local directives before committing to plans. You can also use this directory of phone numbers for individual states.

What’s the Covid situation?

Mexico has had more than 7.07 million cases of Covid-19 and almost 330,000 deaths as of September 20.

Mexico had administered roughly 209.7 million doses of vaccine, or 165 doses per 100 people as of August 21. For comparison, the United States has administered about 185 doses per 100 people and Canada has given 234 doses per 100 people.

As of September 20, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had Mexico at Level 3 (high) for Covid-19 risk.

What can visitors expect?

Many hotels and lodging groups offer on-site Covid-19 testing for travelers returning to places that require them. Check with your hotel about on-site testing before you travel.

Visitors are likely to find situations differ depending on where in the country they travel, with local restrictions varying. See the Local Resources section of the US Embassy website for specific information.

Mexico uses a four-color “traffic-light” system to assess the health safety of each state and set certain restrictions in movement if conditions warrant it. Red is the highest level of caution, and green allows all activities.

Sheriff: Florida deputy killed by construction worker in hit-and-run is illegal immigrant who was expelled from US in 2021; police uncover serious immigration concern during investigation

Gualtieri said the driver told a fellow co-worker that he had "just killed a deputy."

The driver allegedly handed his construction vest and helmet to a 31-year-old coworker named Elieser Aureilio Gomez-Zelaya, and told him to hide them. The driver ran into the nearby woods.

Law enforcement launched a manhunt involving three helicopters, K-9 units, and about 100 officers. Police located the vest and helmet – which helped bloodhounds from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office to track down the driver.

After being taken into custody, the driver gave investigators a fake name of Victor Vasquez-Real and said he was a 35-year-old originally from Puerto Rico. However, investigators later revealed the man to be Juan Ariel Molina-Salles – a 32-year-old illegal immigrant living in the United States, according to authorities.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said Molina-Salles entered the country illegally in Oct 2021 in Eagle Pass, Texas – a popular location for migrants to cross into the U.S. from Mexico. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) allegedly denied Molina-Salles entry into the United States, and he was sent back to Mexico.

Molina-Salles reportedly told police that he had been living in the Tampa Bay area since March of this year.

There are no official records of him entering the country.

"There is no record of him ever legally coming back into the United States, and he was here illegally," Gualtieri said.

Molina-Salles was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving death.

Gualtieri said Molina-Salles fled "because he became afraid after he killed the deputy, but he clearly knew he killed the deputy."

Gomez-Zelaya also gave authorities a fake name, according to police. He is purportedly an illegal immigrant from Honduras. Gomez-Zelaya was charged with being an accessory to the crime for hiding the driver's helmet and vest in the woods.

Both men were taken to the Pinellas County Jail.

Gualtieri said a majority of the construction workers at the site gave authorities false names and lied about their immigration status.

"They were hindering the investigation, not giving us answers to the questions we needed," he noted.

The construction workers were employed by a company doing contract work for Florida's Department of Transportation.

"All of these people are working for Archer Western, which is a contractor apparently doing work for the Florida Department of Transportation out of Tampa," Gualtieri proclaimed, according to WFLA. "This company’s employing all these illegals, and they’re all out there lying, giving us fake names, fake IDs, a lot of fake IDs out of North Carolina."

Molina-Salles reportedly provided the construction company with a fake ID card.

Gualtieri said of Molina-Salles, "He didn’t have a driver’s license. He’s got nothing. He shouldn’t have been here to begin with, and he shouldn’t have been driving. He shouldn’t have been working."

"He has no qualifications to drive a front loader, and he said what he told these people is that back in Honduras, he worked some construction, and he knows how to operate this thing so they said go ahead," the sheriff continued. "Is that really what these contractors are doing? Is that how they’re doing business?"

The state Transportation Department told Fox News, "While it appears that these hiring procedures were followed, including a federal E-Verify clearance check, and the individuals in question passed this federal clearance, the Department is initiating an internal review on this project contract. FDOT will also continue to support law enforcement efforts as investigations continue."

Archer Western – a Georgia-based construction company – said it is cooperating with the investigations.

Gualtieri said the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be notified about the illegal immigrants working at the construction company because the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office has no jurisdiction over illegal aliens.

"Again, he knew he hit a deputy and as opposed to stopping, rendering aid, and accepting responsibility for what he did, we had to chase him around and sift through all this nonsense with all these people lying and providing fake IDs and we spent nine hours out there chasing this thing down," Gualtieri said,

On Friday, the office of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis told WTVT:

We are currently investigating the matter and looking to determine if illegal immigrants have utilized fraudulent information to obtain employment with contractors working with the State of Florida. As we collect details and examine potential courses of action, we are reminded once again that illegal immigration is a serious and ongoing problem in the United States that has a multifaceted effect on Florida. If this individual’s illegal status played into his decision to try to cover up this incident, it underscores just one of the harms that our state faces because of the federal government’s open border policies. The State of Florida is not a sanctuary state and illegal immigrants are not authorized to work here. For reasons such as this, we will continue our lawful efforts to interdict and relocate illegal immigrants.
