By Aaron Humes: The first new statutory regulations related to COVID-19 since before the general election are now in force and will affect tourist visitors and their patrons alike.
The Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations has sent out a statement informing tourism stakeholders of how S.I. 170 of 2020 will affect their particular industry.
A curfew for all, Belizeans and tourists, is in effect as of 10 p.m. tonight until 4:59 a.m. the following morning, nightly.
Tourists must reserve or book their stay at an approved Gold Standard hotel or other accommodation and must download and register their information on the Belize Travel Health App prior to or on arrival in Belize.
The app must be functional throughout their stay, and they are required to keep their mobile devices with them at all times.
Tourists may only be transported by those means of transportation authorized by the Belize Tourism Board.
Restaurants may reserve dining in service for open-air, outdoor, or al fresco dining for no more than 50 percent of seating capacity; all other licensed restaurants are limited to take out, delivery, or drive through services.
Generally, no more than 10 persons can be gathered in any public place or space at a time. Face masks or other covering remains mandatory in businesses as is social distancing.
All bars, rum shops, discotheques, night clubs, gymnasiums, casinos, and gaming establishments are to remain closed; spas shall remain open and receive clientele by appointment only, and with only two customers within the business establishment at a time if the square footage allows for social distancing.
