Click the link below to access Statutory Instrument No. 149 of 2021 - PUBLIC HEALTH (PREVENTION OF THE SPREAD OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE) (COVID-19) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 3) REGULATIONS, 2021

For a list of other statutory instruments:

New SI Allows Alcohol Sale After 6:00

Tonight, there is a new SI, but before you start worrying about confusing curfew hours, this SI only has minor changes. SI 147 repeals regulation 27 from SI 119 - to put it simply, regulation 27 had banned the sale of alcohol by stores after 6pm. There's a chance you may not even have known that was still in effect, but now, that ban has been lifted.

The SI also adds the use of the Taiwanese COVID 19 vaccine, Medigen, to our existing list of vaccines available for the public. Medigen, like most of the others, is a two dose vaccine.

And today Cabinet approved new waiting times for booster shots. For AstraZeneca and Pfizer, the wait time is three months after the second dose. Janssen, which is a one shot vaccine, allows for a second shot 2 months after being vaccinated. And for those who had caught the virus, they can be vaccinated one month after the laboratory diagnosis.

Liquor Sale Ban Lifted; Please Exercise Public Health Measures

On Tuesday, cabinet announced that it is lifting the six o'clock cut off time for liquor sales with the hopes that residents would be responsible enough and not become reckless and engage in any social gathering. It comes on the heels of an ease on curfew beginning at ten p.m. from Sunday to Thursday and then at eleven p.m. on Friday and Saturday. But it also comes after some bars in Placencia were seen on social media flouting public safety measures. Deputy Director of Health Services, Doctor Francis Morey says Belizeans must take their own health and safety seriously and that enforcement should continue-especially for bars posing as restaurants to try and skirt the regulations.

Dr. Francis Morey, Deputy Director of Health Services

"We have to be cognizant of what wins and what is essential is vaccination, exercising due care with the public health measures that need to be implemented and reinforced by every single person. The Ministry of Health cannot be policing a person. Most likely that is the part of what the police comes and the ComPol has been quite forthcoming when he addresses the media with what will be done. That is the enforcement that will continue. So these entities and bars and restaurants that masquerades as bars, they need to be held accountable and every person that is out there putting himself at risk and going back and putting his family at risk."
