These cases were confirmed in the municipality of Los Cabos, the municipality most affected by this pandemic. However, despite the much higher number than the State Capital, no deaths have occurred in this tourist area due to COVID-19.

On Sunday afternoon, the death of an elderly person in La Paz had been confirmed due to this virus.

Given the actions taken by the federal, state and municipal governments to avoid leaving home and closing down places that could be a space for the virus to spread, activities are temporarily suspended, including the provision of boat services, tours, sport fishing, diving, snorkeling, and glass bottom, among others.
