Rocky Point lifeguards are now well prepared for tourists

As tourists are now returning to Rocky Point, a team of at least nine lifeguards are ready to set up positions across Rocky Point’s busiest beaches, which was explained by the Civil Protection Director and Fire Chief Francisco Javier Carrillo Ruiz just recently.  The local head of Civil Protection noted certified agency staff is prepared to respond timely to any situation once the current COVID-19 health emergency subsides.  He explained his agency is coordinated with the Navy and the local Tourism Auxiliary Unit to ensure lifeguard presence particularly along Playa Hermosa and Playa Bonita. Then, he added that tourism resort developments along Sandy Beach are responsible for their own lifeguards.

Carrillo Ruiz stated that after Rocky Point’s beaches reopen, the Civil Protection will make sure access points are not blocked in order to ensure entry for emergency vehicles. His agency will place lifeguards in strategic locations, along with ambulances, aquatic rescue equipment and paramedics, while the Navy will assist as appropriate by making beach rounds, as well as use of aquatic units that monitor the coast.

Phase 6 or reopening begins on Saturday,  Aug. 1st

First, there are sill restrictions.  As such, beach hours are as follows: Exercise (walking and running on the beach) is 6:00 am to 8:00 am and 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  Then, general recreation is 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.  There is a maximum of 10 people allowed in groups and a maximum of five people under tents or shades.  There are no glass bottles allowed on the beach.   You must have a bag to remove trash. Make sure you use  masks, which are mandatory on the beach and when interacting with vendors.

Locan hotel, motel, and resort capacity

Hotels & Motels may operate up to 60% of their capacity, which is great news.  Resorts, villas and similar properties can operate up to 80% of their capacity – also great news!  Proposals for the Aug. 15th reopening of movie theaters state that they will be allowed to hold up to 25% capacity, preferably with pre-sale of tickets via apps or other electronic devices.  Then, additional proposals include reopening liquor stores as well as extending hours at restaurant and bars to 10:00 pm, both following prior authorization of the State Alcohol Board.

All establishments that are planning to reopen in Rocky Point must have a signed Letter of Commitment from the Municipal Economic Development Office.  Also, they must undergo a training course with the Civil Protection Office and incorporate health and hygiene protocols including social distancing, use of antibacterial gel, gloves, and masks, among other measures.

Come visit soon!

So come visit Rocky Point and discover the closest beach town to Phoenix, Arizona, only about 60 miles south of the border.  Keep in mind that even in whale season and for many different reasons no cruise can guarantee actual whale sightings. Suggested protocols to ensure the protection of whales during whale watching  trips:f the border.  And remember – after you visit, you’ll return frequently.  So, when that happens, remember Anchor Storage: the place to keep your things secure in Rocky Point.  It’s always easier to store your beach things, jet skis, and other large and small items than it is to haul them down time after time.
