As of Wednesday, July 1, 2020,  the State of Emergency (SOE) in Belize expires, and with it ends the curfew that had been enforced across the country of Belize as a result of the rise of the coronavirus pandemic. However, since COVID-19 is still a threat to Belizeans and the Belizean economy, regulations will be in place to ensure that safety protocols are being adhered to.

Some of the major changes in this new relaxed norm are as follows:

  • No more Curfew
  • Land Borders to remain closed
  • Only legal way to travel to Belize is through the International Airport
  • Face masks must still be worn
  • Social distancing must still be exercised (6 feet apart)
  • Bars, nightclubs, restaurants, cafes and all other businesses are now allowed to re-open
  • The only time face masks are not required is when someone is at home, driving in their vehicle, persons participating in church services, when eating at a restaurant, while exercising, and participating in sporting events
  • Failure to use face masks in public places can result in an arrest and charge

Here are two of the recent Statutory Instruments put in place regarding Public Health and Quarantine.
