By Rubén Morales Iglesias: As per the last statutory instrument and as promised by Prime Minister John Briceño in October, the COVID-19 curfew will start at 10:00 p.m. as of tonight, Monday, November 22.
This has long been awaited by Belizeans who have seen their daily lives affected by the long curfew hours imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though the United Democratic Party has said that it was mainly imposed to curb crime. Whichever way, it’s welcome news for Belizeans, particularly business owners who have had their sales very much affected.
The extending of hours that Belizeans can be out of their homes was announced on Wednesday, November 10, by Minister of Health and Wellness Michel Chebat.
According to Chebat, effective tonight, the curfew will be from 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. from Sundays to Thursdays. Belizeans will have one more hour to be out of their homes on Fridays and Saturdays as the curfew will be from 11:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.
Prime Minister Briceño had said last month that under the three-month plan, some restrictions, including curfew hours, would be lessened if the number of COVID-19 cases kept going down. The expectation, according to the Prime Minister, is that for Christmas the curfew will start at 11 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday and at midnight for Fridays and Saturdays.
