Preventing the virus from entering Belize and practicing self-isolation are the two most important steps that can be taken to avoid community outbreak.
The Government stresses the importance of respecting and abiding by the self-isolation instructions issued by the Ministry of Health.
These restrictions will all be reviewed after 30 days.
The public is reminded to take preventative measures to reduce the risk of transmission.
The Government continues to encourage the washing of hands regularly with soap and running water.
When coughing or sneezing, cover the mouth in the inside of elbows or inside a tissue to be disposed immediately. Avoid close contact with persons who have flu-like symptoms.
Avoid sharing personal items and disinfect common surfaces. If you have travelled to areas where COVID-19 is circulating and you are experiencing fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention immediately.
The Government advises the public to be guided by facts.
