By Hugh O’Brien: The Government of Belize is moving to ease restrictions in an attempt to reduce the economic impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the country.
The latest move is to lift the requirement for vaccination cards to be presented prior to entering restaurants, many of which also operate as bars. The lifting of this requirement, according to Minister of Health and Wellness Michel Chebat will be implemented on Monday, November 22, 2021.
According to Chebat, effective the said Monday, November 22, the curfew will be extended from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am from Sundays to Thursdays and will be from 11:00 pm to 4:00 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
Despite the daily number of COVID-19 cases remaining high, Prime Minister John Briceño had indicated that as long as the positivity rate goes down, that his government would be easing some of the restrictions in time for Christmas. This move is also believed to be aimed at preparing for the upcoming tourism season.
With the easing of restrictions, t is expected that more Belizeans will be out at the restaurants, bars and nightspots. Cabinet this week therefore issued a strong urge for Belizeans to continue to wash hands, sanitize, wear masks and practice social distancing.
