By BBN Staff: Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, issued a warning via social media today, cautioning restaurants and other establishments with liquor licenses to adhere to the State of Emergency (SOE) regulations with respect to the sale of alcohol.
Williams took to Facebook this morning, pointing out that some establishments are advertising promotions for the sale of beer and social gatherings, the former being allowed conditionally and the latter being illegal under the current SOE regulations.
“Please, may I remind you that as a restaurant you can only sell alcohol with meal, your main attraction is and must be food and not alcohol. Those places that has Publican Special licence with trade licence to sell food, while the state of emergency regulation do allow you to open your main attraction must also be food. You cannot sell alcohol without food and you must comply with all the requirements of the law,” Williams said. ” The regulation is clear that no one shall host no social event of any kind.”
Williams said pointedly thay anyone caught in violation of the regulations will be arrested, and called upon all Belizeans to do their part in ensuring the country is COVID-19 free.
