By Benjamin Flowers: The Belize Central Prison, managed by the Kolbe Foundation, has gone into complete lock-down due to an increase in cases of COVID-19, specifically the omicron variant.
The Kolbe Foundation issued a statement today, noting that over the past three days a number of staff members and inmates at the prison tested positive, triggering the lockdown.
“The purpose of the full lock-down is to prevent more importation of the virus into the prison, promote the healing of those inmates currently infected, and mitigate the spread by others who also may be asymptomatic,” the Kolbe Foundation said.
During the period of full lock-down, there are absolutely no visits for inmates, as well as no cash deposits or business transactions with customers of the prison. Attorneys are encouraged to not visit their clients at this time, but the foundation says such visits can be facilitated virtually through the prison and judiciary.
