By Benjamin Flowers: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade, and Immigration announced today that all its staff members attached to the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (PGIA) have been removed from active duty after several members tested positive for COVID-19.
The Ministry said that all staff attached to the PGIA were taken off duty and will remain in isolation and that staff from the Immigration Department who have experience working at the airport have begun substituting, in an effort to continue service at the airport.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration and the Ministry of Health & Wellness continue to monitor the situation. Further testing is being conducted as well as vaccination of all frontline staff countrywide,” the Ministry said. “The ministry continues to facilitate, within the laws of Belize, the travel of nationals and visitors.”
The ministry also said that it is within its mandate to promote regular migration and contribute to the sustainable development of Belize while maintaining national security by enhancing border security.
