By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize is preparing to make it mandatory to present a vaccination card or COVID test to enter public buildings, according to Minister of Health and Wellness Michel Chebat.
Chebat, appearing on News 5’s Open Your Eyes morning talk show, said that the new measure would be implemented across the country as of October 1.
“Starting on the first of October only persons who are vaccinated will be able to enter into public buildings. And public buildings including not only the government buildings but also privately owned buildings, it would include any building where the public has lawful access to, including schools,” Chebat said.
The move is being met with mixed responses, with those who are hesitant to take the vaccine condemning the Government’s decision, while others applaud the decision, hoping that it will lead to a reduction in the number of COVID-19 cases in the country.
