ComPol Chester Williams visits the islands to clarify COVID-19 regulation enforcement

After arriving on the island, ComPol met with the management of the San Pedro Belize Express Water Taxi, toured certain areas of San Pedro, and then met with Mayor Daniel Guerrero. Williams indicated that although San Pedro had installed its own rules to protect its citizens, differing from the regulations of the Central Government, the island authorities are now abiding by the law of the land. One of the issues he discussed was the issue with the Water Taxi Companies, where there is room for improvement. Upon re-opening their businesses on Monday, May 4th, the lack of social distancing or the use of masks, and allowing persons to travel for the right reasons quickly became a concern. ComPol said that he is aware of images circulating on social media showing overcrowding inside water taxi vessels. “I visited the water taxi terminal in San Pedro, where I spoke to the manager and informed him that whenever they are unloading, passengers must come out one at a time and maintain at least six feet apart,” said Williams.

In the case of overcrowding vessels, ComPol explained that it is an economic issue. Thus it will not be profitable for these transportation companies to be operating at half capacity. Therefore, they have been allowed to work within their legal capacity. “But we do not expect these companies to go over their capacity and have passengers sitting in places they should not be sitting,” said Williams. He added that they should comply with the law, and if these regulations are not followed by the water taxi companies, putting the country at risk, he will make recommendations to the Prime Minister to close them down.
