    What's Happening

    Rotary Club Speaker on Zoom - Dra. Grace Lim - TUESDAY MORNING June 30.
    The COVID Impact - Dra. Grace Lim
    Every day we’re hearing about the devastating effects the coronavirus pandemic is having on our San Miguel de Allende community. Few people are seeing it from the front lines like this week’s guest speaker, Dra. Grace Lim. First, as a medical doctor, she is very well aware of the danger and realities of COVID 19. And, as the head of SOME (So Others May Eat) Dra. Grace is dealing with another crisis – hunger.

    When the shut down orders came this past March, hundreds of local people, mostly elderly, no longer had access to the once a week free meal provided by SOME . For many, it was the only nutritional meal they would get each week. Dra. Grace will share her story of how COVID impacts these people and how SOME is dealing with it. She will also discuss the coronavirus crisis in San Miguel and what each of us needs to be doing to safely reopen our community.

    Please StayAtHome
    Starting this Wednesday, only local traffic, heavy vehicles, urban and foreign transportation will be able to cross the La Obra area (El Pípila Underpass); private vehicles will use alternate routes; Likewise, the Josefina Orozco street will activate “round trip” to speed up road mobility.

    This was reported by the Traffic and Mobility Police Station attached to the Ministry of Public Security, the measure is "indispensable" since the area of ​​La Obra continues to use it and saturates traffic, causing delays in times of transit and mobility of people and vehicles .

    For this reason, there will be a greater presence of Transit elements to divert the passage of vehicles on alternate routes; Those who "get off" the Manuel Zavala Bypass, towards the Center, Celaya or Dolores Hidalgo, will enter through "El Caracol" towards Calle 5 de Mayo, they will continue through the exit to Celaya and along Calle Josefina Orozco.

    Josefina Orozco Street will operate “round trip” in the Libramiento Manuel Zavala, so it is essential to drive at the permitted speed, respect pedestrian crossings, obey the road signs and follow the instructions of the traffic elements.

    Those who go from Dolores Hidalgo to the Libramiento or to Celaya, will have to use the alternate lateral road that is indicated to avoid crossing through the La Obra area.
    Traffic diverted at El Pípila Underpass starting May 13 (sp).
