By Aaron Humes: The Government of Belize, as promised, has expanded the definition of frontline worker in regulation 2 of the Public Health (Prevention of the Spread of Infectious Disease) (COVID-19) Regulations, 2021.

In addition to the already established categories of health care workers, officers and staff of the Belize Police Department, Belize Coast Guard, and Belize Defence Force; teachers, tourism workers, officers and staff of the Customs and Excise, Immigration and Judiciary; public transport operators and members and staff of the Transport Department; public utility services, workers at business process outsourcing (BPO) agencies, the Department of Civil Aviation and security workers are added staff of the General Post Office, workers at the Ports of Belize City and Big Creek and casino employees and patrons.

The last are covered under a revised regulation 14, which allows casinos and gaming establishments to remain open subject to the following conditions: 1) employees shall be immunized; 2) only immunized persons are allowed as patrons and must present their vaccine identification card as proof; 3) six feet of physical distance and mask-wearing is enforced; and 50 percent capacity is specified.

The regulations come into effect today, Monday.
