Mexico – Starting today winter time 2022 start this sunday, 30 of October and will remain permanently except in some states that will have other conditions.

The time change occurred at 02:00 in the morning, which is exactly when daylight saving time comes into effect, so the clock should have been put back on Saturday.

Some days ago, The Senate of the Republic approved the creation of the Time Zones Law in the United Mexican States, with which daylight saving time is eliminated, this, with the argument that the human right to health is guaranteed since the time change affected cardiovascular problems, memory, sleep disorders and other damage to health.

The time change is not made in the states of Sonora and Quintana Roo due to different economic and social conditions. While the new proposal for the Time System Law includes two exceptions: Baja California and the 33 municipalities that make up the northern border, that will be followed with a time change tied with that of the United States, what happens every march and november.

These are the municipalities that do not change to winter time:

Baja California: Tijuana, Mexicali, Ensenada, Rosarito Beach and Tecate

Chihuahua: Juárez, Ojinaga, ascension, Coyame del Sotol, Guadalupe, Janos, Manuel Benavides and Práxedis G. Guerrero

the director of the Saltillo Migrant House: Coins, black stones, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jimenez, Zaragoza, Nava and Ocampo

New Lion: Anahuac and Los Aldama

Tamaulipas: Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa, Matamoros, Camargo, Guerrero, Gustavo Diaz Ordaz, Sea, Miguel German, Rio Bravo and Valle Hermoso

Winter time in the United States begins a week later than in Mexico, on Sunday 6 of November, Sunday morning 6 of November, Clocks must be turned back one hour in the US, remember that the official changeover time is at 2:00 hours.
