By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Health (MOH) is reminding people already in Belize and those coming in through the Philip Goldson International Airport (PGIA) that the protocols for the containing and preventing the spread of COVID-19 are active and enforceable at all times under Statutory Instrument (SI) 136 of 2020.
Director of Health Services with the MOH, Dr. Marvin Manzanero, speaking on today’s Ask the Experts, said that the Ministry has been getting repeated complaints, through its various feedback platforms, that people are not adhering to the required protocols.
“Understand that the issues in terms of mask-wearing and physical distancing have not been lifted. The issue of not having more than 10 persons in a particular meeting area, these things still remain and become enforceable at all times,” Manzanero said.
He also stressed that people who have been cleared by airport authorities, either by bringing a negative PCR test or testing negative at the PGIA, are still required by virtue of Section 20 of the SI, to self-isolate for a mandatory 10 days upon arrival in Belize. Manzanero noted that many of the complaints about people not adhering to the protocols are coming from Placencia.
He added that the MOH will be working closely with other authorities to ensure that the protocols are enforced.
