At the general aviation part of the airport, nobody wore masks or gloves or checked anything. When we got to Guaymas airport they had us fill out a form asking for symptoms, places we’d been and also took our temperature with the same kind of device, wearing gloves and masks, and even photographed us (without asking). Next day they checked it again and we filled in the forms again. Also they passed out a pamphlet about the virus danger. Headlines in the local newspaper said stay home, but there was plenty of traffic and only some citizens were masked or gloved.
We flew over trump’s wall to land at the tiny Santa Theresa, NM airport and had to wait 20 minutes for 2 customs and border control agents to arrive without the K-9 unit, though one of the men was carrying a leash. We filled in the declaration form regarding imports, but no health questionnaire or thermometer was in sight, though both men wore masks and gloves and one mentioned he heard the first symptom is the lack of taste and smell. They seemed worried and were very polite.
We plan to get supplies tomorrow and then not see our friends.... sad to miss the sweet goodbyes in La Manzanilla but please know we cherish our friends and acquaintances and all the people of the town and dearly hope the virus passes you all by.
Lots of love from Carole and Ike.... we hope to see you next year.
