By BBN Staff: The Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams said this morning that as a result of a number of persons from Blue Creek area testing positive for Covid19, a state of Emergency was declared for the San Felipe and Blue Creek Villages in the Orange Walk District.
Williams said that this means that the security force have now sealed off those two villages with a view to prevent anything from going in or coming out of those villages.
“We also have a patrol presence within to ensure that there is compliance with the regulations. These positive results came as a result of those reckless and selfish persons who despite knowing the risk they are putting our country and people at, continue to enter this country illegally from Mexico,” Williams stated.
The Commissioner said that the security forces will remain active along our borders to prevent these activities.
Compol Williams also pleaded to the public to report all border jumpers to the police or Ministry of Health.
“Lets us not take no chance Belize, let’s not shield those who put us at risk, we all have a responsibility to keep our country free from this deadly virus,” Williams said.
