COVID-19 cases continue to decrease on Ambergris Caye - 10/22/20 09:51 AM

Islanders asked to maintain health protocols

A couple of months ago, San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, was once the epicenter of COVID-19 in Belize, with hundreds of positive cases. The situation is different now, and the latest report from the Ministry of Health (MOH) recorded less than 40 active, positive cases on the island. However, islanders are reminded to comply with safety mandates such as wearing masks, proper handwashing, and practicing social distancing.

In San Pedro, random testing has been ongoing, particularly at construction sites and other potentially vulnerable areas. Rapid testing is now available on the island, producing results in around 30 minutes. Island residents are reminded that if they experience any symptoms, such as flu-related fever, loss of smell and/or taste, to visit the Mar del Tumbo clinic for testing. The clinic opens from 8AM to 5PM and for emergencies, call phone number 672-0911.
