By BBN Staff: The Belize Police Department is mobilizing to ensure that the social distancing measures recommended by the National COVID-19 Oversight Committee are being adhered to due to lack of public compliance.

The department said that despite the Committee’s recommendations that people stay a minimum of six feet away from each other in areas such as banks and stores, and that busses refrain from overcrowding passengers, it has observed that these measures continue to be violated. As such, officers will be visiting areas where people congregate to ensure compliance.

“As police, we do not want to be confrontational with our good citizens. We, therefore, ask that we all comply with the measures being implemented for our safety,” the Department said.

The Department also said that excess passengers will be removed from busses and the drivers will be ticketed for noncompliance. To date, Belize does not have a confirmed case of COVID-19 and all measures being implemented at this time are to minimize the possibility of transmission of this virus, which has killed more than 14,000 people worldwide.
