  1. Don't worry about the map UNLESS it is off by a State. Just make certain your address is keyed in correctly, including state and zip code. One word of caution- if you order and pay for $1000 worth of goods, but some are out of stock, your card will still be charged the full amount of your initial order. When the delivery is made you only sign for what is actually delivered. WM owes me over $300, and although the full amount charges have cleared BBVA, no refunds have appeared on my account. I won't use them again until I receive a refund.
  2. What a damn shame! For the wellbeing of all residents, both Mexican and expats, if you are not willing or able to self-quarantine (NO CONTACT!) for a MINIMUM of 2-weeks on arrival here, do not cross the border. There will be a shit-storm here soon enough and anyone who thinks the medical system here is up to handling it is delusional. Our only hope if for people to remain where they are- in Canada, in the US, in the Mexican town they reside in, and better yet AT HOME and stop spreading this. Asymptomatic does not equate to virus free!
  3. We prepaid our workers for 5 weeks and took a large load of fresh produce and household supplies to them just ahead of the shutdown. The wife always brings us food she has cooked and the husband does all the things we can't do, from gardening to keeping our solar panels and tubes clean. We're on the poor end of the financial spectrum, but these folks are deserving of what little we have to give.
  4. I have more or less 5 meters of elastic that you're welcome to. Tell me when you want to pick it up and I'll hang the bag on the gate. PM for directions. We're in Chapala Haciendas.
  5. The problem is NOT the food. The problem is the packaging the food comes in. This virus favors metal and plastic. If the chef, unbeknownst to him, is an asymptomatic carrier, he will pass it on via the packaging. If you order food in take away containers and plastic bags wear gloves when handling them or, first dispose of all packaging then disinfect the surface you sat it on and wash your hands thoroughly before touching anything.
  6. I agree. We are in no way out of the woods and won't be for weeks. Misinformation of this type is injurious to all.
  7. If Simapa must apply to governmental laws regarding one's right to water, they can't/won't turn it off. Morosos in our fracc have their water severely reduced, but the law forbids shutting it off entirely.
  8. You apparently didn't read this part- FROM THE SECRETARIA DE SALUD. You know, sorta like the Surgeon General in the US, who in situations involving the health and well being of the people uses, wait for it...SCIENCE to dictate policy. I don't argue with $%&/()s, so I'm outta here before I address the jesus/god/invisible amulets in the sky business. Yes, I said $%&/()s and you can bet I mean it.
  9. Why pay in advance? Go to the CFE app or their website, the same with Telmex and use your Multiva card to pay what you owe. You can access it if you are here in Mexico or out of the country. You can also buy your Telmex airtime on the Telmex site.
  10. Thank you. There are enough self-centered people living in this community that it blows my mind. We prepaid our workers for 5-Weeks "sick leave" and sent $1150 worth of fresh produce and meats, plus plenty of non-perishables to them, so they don't have to get on a rolling Petri dish to come serve us or feed their family. Yet many I know are still having their maids in at great risk to EVERYONE!. Wake up people! Watch the story of the first months in Wuhan and the havoc this wreaked on the lives of the citizens. We are a very vulnerable population with a seriously inadequate health system. It will take one inconsiderate person to strike a match to the tinder pile.
  11. That includes delivery people. We should be as concerned for the well being of others as we are for ourselves. NOTHING is more important at this time as EVERYONE staying home. What's so difficult to understand about the absolute urgency of this?
  12. If you've been to Walmart, Soriana, and Superlake, as well as checked Amazon (US & MX) & Mercado Libre with no success, you might need to sacrifice and make do. Next trip, pack your blades in your checked baggage.
  13. Not sure where you buy gas, but it's been under $20/lt in Chapala for almost a week.
  14. If you want to get home, I would leave immediately. Things are happening rapidly at this point.
