Police Commissioner makes appeal to employers to respect COVID-19 protocols

Posted: Monday, December 7, 2020. 9:18 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Commissioner of Police Chester Williams issued an appeal today for the business community to respect the COVID-19 protocols established by health authorities and allow workers who have either been swabbed for or tested positive for COVID-19 to the time off to be quarantined.

Williams took to Facebook this morning, to say that the Police department has been getting reports of employers refusing to allow workers the time to go into isolation once they have been swabbed, and worse, still requiring COVID-19 positive employees to come to work.

“This should not happen, if an employee is positive such employee belong in isolation to recover. Once that employee is not in isolation then he is in breach of Isolation order and can be arrested,” Willaims said. “Similar, once the employee has been swabbed and awaiting results, such employee must be in quarantine until the results are out.”

Williams also stressed to employers that keeping a COVID-19 positive staff member on the job will affect the entire workforce and others who enter their establishment. He called on all employers and for all Belizeans to do their part in the fight against the pandemic by adhering to the established protocols.
