The Coast Guard will have to be more active on the waters - because apart from land borders opening - sea ports will opened too.

A new Public Health SI was released today, but before you get your hopes up that the curfew might have been extended or repealed altogether, this SI only makes it official that land borders and sea ports will reopen on Monday.

For the land borders, it will be open from 6am to 10pm every day and, as you know, you'll need to be tested if you stay overnight or if you exhibit flu-like symptoms upon reentry. And you'll need to be double vaxxed.

The same applies to sea ports, except they will be open from 6am to 4pm.

Protocols Will Be in Place at Border: Minister of Health Does Not Expect Large Numbers to Cross

As we have been reporting, land borders are scheduled to reopen on Monday February seventh. We will be taking a closer look at those protocols later in the newscast during our COVID Chronicles segment. But today, when we caught up with the Minister of Health and Wellness at an event in Belize City, we asked him about the preparations that are being undertaken.

Kevin Bernard, Minister of Health and Wellness

"We are prepared; we are prepared at the Ministry of Health to have our team in place. We are hoping that we can have a very smooth reopening at the border. Somebody asked me yesterday, do you think that Belizeans will flock the Northern Border on Monday, on the seventh? I doubt that. A lot of Belizeans are still worrying about what is happening across the border. And so, once everybody understands the protocols, I think there will be some smooth transitioning that will take place as we open."
