By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize has decided to push back the recently announced January 1, 2022, date for the reopening of land borders, due to COVID-19 concerns.
GOB issued an advisory a short while ago saying that the decision to postpone the reopening was based on a formal recommendation made by the National COVID-19 Advisory Committee, with tentative reopening now scheduled for sometime in February 2022.
“The delay in opening will allow for the health system to better prepare for the emergence of the Omicron variant as well as to prepare for the education system’s return to hybrid learning on 10th January 2022,” GOB said.
The advisory also noted that the Ministry of Health & Wellness will continue to monitor the situation very closely, with a view to ensure the integrity of Belize’s health system and the welfare of Belizeans.
