By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize reminds the public of its directives on social distancing as a primary precautionary method to mitigate the potential spread and transmission of COVID-19.

The public is also expected to continue these practices if a confirmed case is detected in Belize.

The Government reminds that gatherings in public spaces and business environments are limited to a maximum of 25 persons at any given time.

This directive is applicable to restaurants, lounges, clubs, bars, markets, supermarkets and all other public spaces.

While the advisory does not call for the closure of establishments, protocols have been put in place to ensure that groups of people are limited to the maximum number of 25.

Business owners, managers, and staff of all these entities, and the public, are urged to comply with this directive to support Belize’s national efforts.

“The country’s ability to mitigate and manage the potential spread of COVID-19 lies in efforts by all Belizeans to heed and cooperate with public directives, advisories, and guidance notices,” the ministry noted.

All are strongly advised to comply with these advisories to help to reduce the spread of this highly contagious virus.

The current advisory will be updated as the situation evolves.
