By BBN Staff: The COVID-19 National Oversight Committee held its second meeting today March 20th and agreed to take additional measures to further protect the health of Belizeans and reduce the threat of transmission of COVID-19 in Belize.
As of today, March 20, Belize does not have any confirmed case of COVID-19. The developments on the international and regional fronts, however, have informed the Committee’s decisions.
Effective midnight Saturday, March 21, the Northern Border of Belize will be closed for traveling but will remain open for cargo transportation.
This means that only Belizean nationals, residents, and diplomats residing in Belize will be allowed entry into Belize subject to inspection and possible quarantine for 14 days.
Similarly, the Northern Border will be closed for nationals and residents wishing to travel outside of Belize except for emergencies.
The Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport will be closed effective Monday, March 23rd after the last scheduled flight departs.
Again, these measures only apply to the movement of people and do not apply to cargo trucks or cargo planes.
