Hi everyone.  Hope you are all staying healthy.  I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you what is going on here as there have been many questions on the calls I take.

Right now it is business as usual.  I crossed twice into the US today and no issue crossing in either direction.  I had no wait and 10am or at 4pm when I crossed leaving Tijuana.   I would pay particular attention to what you see on the news as if they do close the border it will not be a secret.

Have a couple guys here because they had their flight canceled to Colombia and chose Mexico for a second destination.  I really thought the virus may hurt our business and there are some cancellations but so far we are dong good.   A few other are here now because their jobs gave them some time off and were working in businesses that are closing for a couple of weeks. Now we fully understand that many want to wait this out and of course that may be prudent.

Seems like their is less traffic now in Tijuana, but I did see long lines for people crossing in cars. Not sure how long the wait was when I saw that line, but would not be surprised to hear it was more than 2 hours.

As much as I miss March Madness, and sports in general I will somehow live.  Hope that things will be more normal in April, and for the time being there has been no decision about our fiesta May 9th.   We certainly are not ready to cancel now, but I suppose by April 15th we will have a more clear picture of what is happening.   I will try and update our website in the new section daily.

Be careful out there.
