By Aaron Humes: This evening, the Government of Belize announced that it would, by amendment, extend curfew for an additional thirty days with effect from March 4, 2021, the day after municipal elections.
It is amending Statutory Instrument 14 of 2021 which was due to expire this coming week.
On election day itself, curfew begins at 8 p.m.
Additional amendments made to this SI includes the exemption of testing, meaning that anyone landing in Belize with proof of having received the two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine would not be subjected to testing.
Another change to the SI has to do with the PCR tests for those entering Belize. Previously the test was required to be taken 72 hours (3 days) prior to arrival; that has been changed to 96 hours (4 days).
The Government also reminded that municipal election day is not a public and bank holiday, although employers will be expected to give workers time to go out and vote. The recently amended SI also prohibits the sale of alcohol from 6:00 p.m. on March 3 to 5:00 a.m. on March 4.
The amendments to the SI become effective on Sunday, February 28, 2021.
