"We are thankful that things are back to normal for our churches and schools in Mexico," said Israel Leito, president of the Adventist Church in Inter-America.

Letio credited precautions taken by local church leaders for safeguarding students and church members from outbreaks of the virus.

Last week, world church administration announced travel to Mexico by church employees was no longer restricted.
