Fifty-nine persons countrywide were arrested and charged over the weekend for breaking the State of Emergency regulations. According to Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, forty-five persons were arrested for being unable to provide reasons for movement outside the curfew period. Thirteen persons were arrested for breach of curfew. One person was arrested for operating public transportation during the public emergency and one person was charged for negligent use of fire. That person was in breach of SI fifty-nine, the environmental protection law that prohibits the lighting of fires. Members of the Belize Coast detained five persons on Sunday for breaching the S.O.E.  The ground was spotted at Sand Bar recreating. Pictures show liquor inside a cooler in the boat the men traveled in. While the strict quarantine has been lifted, the State of Emergency remains and has been extended for an additional sixty days.
