By BBN Staff: BBN has confirmed that the social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are still not being applied at the Belize City bus terminal.

Concerned commuters contacted BBN this morning and shared images of a large crowd, which they estimated at least 100 people, gathered at the terminal this morning keeping virtually no distance between persons as they tried to board a bus. According to the commuter, the terminal had also provided two buckets of water that all persons must dip their hands into in order to wash their hands. Commuters also noted there is only one bus leaving every 3 hours, contributing to the overcrowding.

We were also sent pictures showing that buses are clearly violating regulations by overcrowding and carrying standees. The commuter also noted that as the bus passed the 4 mile checkpoint on the George Price highway police made no effort to enforce any of the new regulations as it pertains to carrying standees.

Our newsroom reached out to transport officials this morning but thus far, they have not responded. We’ll keep following up on this.
