As the drive for vaccinations continue, the BHA with the assistance of the Ministry of Health organized several sessions for various properties in the island of San Pedro. This week MataChica Resorts, Grand Caribe & Victoria House participated in voluntary vaccination programmes. These sessions included information sessions, question and answer periods and vaccines. We are overwhelmed by the support of the hospitality sector and the number of employees that turn out to these events. If you are a member within the Belize district and need assistance, our office is willing to assist.
Bringing the industry back is no small feat, but small steps build to long strides. The BHA office has been working with the Ministry of Health and Wellness to sensitize and encourage people to get vaccinated. Earlier this month, the Belize Hotel Association assisted in the coordination of the first round of vaccinations for tourism workers at the Best Western Biltmore and Plaza. We then took to Turneffe Atoll, where three-member properties were visited for the administration of the vaccine.
A total of eight member properties and 400 hospitality personnel have received their first vaccine with our assistance thus far.
