By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Health and Wellness said today that it will expand testing to now include all persons requiring a negative COVID-19 test to enter other countries.

This is being done after the US
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that all air passengers will require a negative COVID-19 test to enter the United States effective January 26, 2021.

The Ministry noted that expanded testing remains a priority.

As such, mass testing activities continue in all districts to ensure that cases are detected, isolated, and managed early.

Rapid testing can be done both at public health and some private health facilities countrywide.

Additionally, the Ministry says that it is in the final phase of preparation to ensure that COVID-19 PCR testing is available to persons departing the country.

At this time, persons requiring a PCR test to depart Belize must make a formal request by emailing the Acting Director of Health Services at [email protected].

To accommodate such requests, public testing sites will soon be available in the following districts:

Belize District – Belize City and San Pedro Town
Cayo District – San Ignacio Town
Stann Creek District – Placencia village

The Ministry is also finalizing discussions with several private health facilities to offer COVID-19 tests for persons exiting the country.

The Ministry will provide a list with specific locations countrywide, phone numbers, and fees.
