Of the 39 active cases, 19 are females and 20 are males.
The country has now registered 72 confirmed cases of the virus.
Fifteen new cases of COVID-19 were identified yesterday as a result of the contact tracing of cases identified over the weekend.
These cases are part of a record number of 148 samples processed in one day.
Seven cases have been identified in Corozal. Seven cases have been detected in Orange Walk. San Pedro now has one new case.
Five cases are from the repatriation process and these persons are under quarantine orders. Two of the cases in Corozal are linked to the case identified over the weekend and three cases in Orange Walk are tied to the case identified in that district over the weekend. The remaining five cases appear to be unrelated; however, contact tracing is currently ongoing for possible links.
The public is reminded to maintain social distancing, practice good hand hygiene, and properly wear masks at all times in public settings.
