By Benjamin Flowers: The Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) issued a reminder to the public today that social gatherings are not permitted at this time.

The Ministry stressed that such activities are prohibited under Section 7 of the Public Health Act (Prevention of the spread of Infectious Disease) (COVID-19) SI No. 74 of 2021 – Exemption on the restrictions of gatherings for social purposes, and as such, businesses should not be promoting them.

“The ministry specifically calls on key social partners including local municipal administrators and the private and public sectors for cooperation as the country goes through a third wave of COVID-19. The ministry continues to identify isolated clusters of the virus countrywide caused by behavior that has gone against the public health prevention advice,” the MOHW said.

The ministry recently announced that Belize is currently going through another wave of COVID-19 cases and that Belize has confirmed the presence of the more contagious Delta Variant of the virus. The public is urged to follow all protocols in place to keep from spreading the virus. The ministry also urged members of the public who have not done so to get vaccinated against COVID-19 at their earliest opportunity.
