By Aaron Humes: This evening, the Ministry of Health and Wellness released the new Statutory Instrument No. 151 of 2021 which includes the latest amendments to the Public Health Act.

The new amendments are aimed specifically to guard against any potential spread of the new COVID-19 variant Omicron and to otherwise prevent, control containing and suppress the spread of the infectious disease COVID-19. As a result, the regulations provide that any persons entering Belize by land, air, or sea from Botswana, Eswatini (Swaziland), Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, or Zimbabwe must be immunized, tested on arrival, and quarantined for 10 days at a government-designated quarantine facility by the guidelines of the Ministry responsible for Health.

The new SI also confirms the changes to curfew hours, from Sunday to Thursday during the hours of 11:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. and Friday and Saturday during the hours of 12:00 midnight until 4:00 a.m. Minors shall remain in the confines of their private property from 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The regulations come into effect today, Monday, December 6, 2021.

In the late evening release, the Ministry of Health & Wellness continues to remind the public to keep following prevention protocols to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and that they will continue to monitor the situation carefully.

The Ministry says it will provide updates on its response and share advisories with the public as soon as more information becomes available.
