The updated regulations will be effective as of February 1, 2021. They are as follows:

  3. Gymnasiums are allowed to open with not more than 50% capacity per hour and must operate by appointments only. The gyms must have proper ventilation, mandatory cleaning after use of each machine, and ensure proper loggin and temperature monitoring of users.
  4. Churches are allowed to have service with up to 50% capacity. Services should not exceed one hour.
  5. Food vendors are allowed to operate in public spaces and must comply with health and COVID-19 protocols, including having markers to indicate six feet physical distancing.
The Ministry of Health and Wellness urges the public to continue practicing the health and safety measures, such as wearing a face mask properly in public places, maintaining physical distance from others, avoiding social gathers, and constantly washing and sanitizing your hands, in order to prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Hello, I have a group coming from the US. Two travelers ( husband and wife) do NOT have cell phones that will download apps. What do they do about the health app? Thank you

If you read the full instructions it states that persons who do not have cell phones are allowed entry in Belize. The app is encouraged only and it states it often does not function properly.
Hello, my name is Charles M. Ollinger, I own a property in san pedro, ambergris caye. I wish to travel to san pedro within the next couple of weeks, I have had covid with in the last 60 days, I am recovered, I have not tested since my recovery for the health department in my city here in the United States, Erie, Pennsylvania, tells me you can test positive for up to 90 days after your initial positive ... more test even if you have recovered as you will still have the covid protein in your body, and you are way past your infection date, and you are recovered. They also say you are not contagious and cannot spread the virus. Below I have highlighted in yellow what the United States policy is as far as entry into our country, it states if you have documentation of a dated positive test result, along with a letter from your health care provider that you have been treated and not infectious and cleared for travel you can enter the United States. My question is does the Belizean government accept this documentation as well, and will this be enough to for me to enter Belize upon my arrival at the BZE airport. I thank you for your consideration in this matter, would you respond to this email, as I would like to return to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye in the near future. Sincerely Charles M.
