By Zoila Palma: One year after COVID-19 declared pandemic, restrictions remain the norm

Today marks 1 year since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19, a pandemic.

In March 2020, countries around the world went on lockdown and implemented strict measures in an attempt to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Landmark events were canceled, classes were closed and businesses were shut down.

Around the world, health experts and Government leaders are still grappling to deal with COVID-19 response.

Restrictions around the globe remain the norm with mandatory mask-wearing, social distancing and curfew.

In Belize, a curfew remains in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning.

Several regulations have been amended as time goes by, travelers entering Belize were required to provide a negative COVID-19 test. However, vaccinated travelers are no longer required to provide the negative test just as long as they provide proof of being vaccinated against COVID-19.

Classes remain closed with educators, parents and students engaged in distance learning activities.

Businesses have adapted to a new way, implementing social distancing rules and sanitizing customers upon entering.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness vaccination campaign continues. During their first phase, health workers and elderly Belizeans are encouraged to visit and get vaccinated.

The vaccination will be done in phases in an effort for all Belizeans to have access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

To date, 2,489 people in Belize have been vaccinated. There are 71 active cases of COVID-19 and the daily positivity rate has seen a decline.
