There is no indication that Covid spiked in Jalisco during Semana Santa & Pascua. https://vallartaindependiente.com/2022/05/04/no-hay-indicios-de-repunte-de-casos-tras-periodo-vacacional-en-jalisco/

Apparently, Jalisco’s Health Board is tabling their next meeting until May 20 due to Mother’s Day. https://contralinea.net/hasta-despues-de-festejos-del-10-de-mayo-definiran-medidas-por-el-covid-19/

Nayarit begins Covid vaccination for minors in Bahía de Banderas today. https://vallartaopina.net/habra-tres-jornadas-de-vacunacion-de-ninos-y-adolescentes-en-bahia-desde-hoy/

US Anthony Blinken tests positive after DC meeting with Mexico’s Marcelo Ebrard. https://www.informador.mx/internacional/COVID-Tras-reunirse-con-Marcelo-Ebrard-Anthony-Blinken-da-positivo-al-virus-20220504-0111.html

Did 20 percent of our municipality’s police force fail an exam and had their weapons confiscated? https://contralinea.net/por-no-aprobar-examen-se-desarmo-a-mas-del-20-de-policias-municipales/

Or was there no confiscation, but what happened is that they failed to process their permits? (HINT: depends on what you read.) https://tribunadelabahia.com.mx/desarmados-150-policias-en-vallarta-55028

IMPORTANT: As previously announced, I’m taking off for a quick weekend getaway in Guadalajara, our state’s capital city. It’s my first urban getaway since the pandemic began, so I’m truly excited about it. Thank YOU cluster for making it possible! Expect announcements for pre-recorded broadcasts tomorrow and Saturday, both on Facebook and YouTube. We’ll be back live on Monday. Have a great weekend!
