Removal of Face Mask Mandate in Outdoor Areas

Effective May 1, 2022, state Health authorities in BCS have lifted the mask mandate for required mask use in open public areas. Masks are still required in closed areas and recommended for anyone who may be at high risk due to an underlying health condition. Please note, that masks may be required in some businesses in Los Cabos and it is up to the discretion of certain companies to enforce or not the mask policy.

ON-SITE COVID-19 ANTIGEN TESTING AVAILABLE FOR OUR GUESTS AT MEXICO GRAND HOTELS

On December 2nd, 2021, the U.S.’s Biden administration along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that all travelers returning to any United States airport would be required to show a negative COVID-19 antigen or NAAT test from a laboratory taken no more than 1 day before arrival in the U.S, to curb the spread of the potentially dangerous omicron variant. This new travel guideline went into effect on December 6th, 2021 by the US government.

Following the new requirement, travelers flying to the U.S. will be required to present:

Foreign travelers to the U.S. will continue to be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within one day of departure before boarding the U.S.-bound airplane.
Unvaccinated U.S. citizens returning to the U.S. from international destinations will continue to be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within one day of departure before boarding a U.S.-bound airplane.
Vaccinated U.S. citizens returning to the U.S. from international destinations will now be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within one day of departure before boarding a U.S.-bound airplane.
Currently, Los Cabos is within Level 1 (green) of the health classification system for the state of Baja California Sur. Under Level 1, additional recreational activities are permitted to be open, and all establishments continue to maintain occupancy limit protocols of approximately 1 person per 6.5 square feet, a 1 AM curfew, and social distancing.

At Mexico Grand Hotels, the safety and well-being of our guests and staff are our top priorities. As part of our advanced health and safety program CASALIMPIA, Mexico Grand Hotels has partnered with AMC Hospitals to secure certified medical professionals to perform testing on-site to guarantee a safe and relaxing stay for our guests. Upon arrival, guests may book their onsite test to receive their results before their departure, without ever having to leave the resort.

Onsite COVID-19 Antigen tests are available for $25 USD per guest.

Should a guest test positive, preventing their return home, the Los Cabos Tourism Department has outlined the following protocols:

Arrangements can be made at a discounted rate in a suite, villa, or residence to quarantine for up to 14 days in Los Cabos.
During this time, AMC medical staff will be available in case of a medical emergency or if medical assistance is needed.
A second test will be performed; once the test is negative, the guests will be able to return home.
As the situation evolves, please keep monitoring our website and social media channels, which continue to be updated as more information becomes available.
