By Aaron Humes: CEO of the Ministry of Human Development and chair of the National Task Force on COVID-19, Judith Alpuche, said the Government and stakeholders have been extremely careful not only with the ramped-up lock-down of the country and its subsequent gradual reopening.
In considering and structuring the plan to reopen the PGIA, Alpuche said, the guideline has been trying in the best way possible to keep people safe, but as of now, the science of vaccination and testing is not quite there. Alpuche also cited the recent lessons of repatriation of Belizeans, several of whom have been found to have COVID-19 but are asymptomatic and quarantined.
Today’s outline, Alpuche said, is the broad contours of the plan which will be fine-tuned up to August 15, and there was a dress rehearsal with the last repatriation flight in terms of managing flow at the airport.
Participation from the public is encouraged, the CEO said, and she mentioned that discussions have focused on our ‘duty of care’ and the seriousness of what is being contemplated. Communications will be ramped up in the coming weeks.
She reminded that as we fully reopen, it is incumbent not to forget that which kept us safe in the first place: limited movement, social distancing, and seeking medical attention for flu-like symptoms among other things.
