We are starting a thread for expats in Guatemala to share information and concerns about Coronavirus. If you would like to post an update and let others know what is happening in your area, we encourage you to do so. What type of precautions are being taken at airports? medical facilities? schools? If you are being told by authorities to make any preparations, what are they telling you.

The border is closed to people coming from China or those who have visited China in the last 14 days. All passengers arriving at the airport must have their temperature taken as they deplane.

So far there have been no confirmed cases in Guatemala, but there has been a confirmed case in San Cristobal de las Casas, in Chiapas Mexico - on the border with Guatemala.

Regarding the Corona virus: Is there any concern or "freak out" around Lake Atitlan? I know the area is more rural and that there is a considerable EU representation there. Some places here in the US are freaking out and some regular store items are selling out - - like toilet paper for some reason.

I had been making arrangements to travel down next month but not sure how to proceed now. Curious to know how the healthcare is responding.

I would not travel if I was you. I love here and they’re worried about it hitting because the healthcare here can’t handle something like this. It’s a big worry. I’d advise against it.
