Would Belizeans Returning Home Will Be Able To Self Quarantine?

According to C.E.O. Martinez, those returning home will need to adhere to strict safety guidelines. The choice to self-quarantine will be given only to a selected few after they meet the requirements, one being if they are deemed to be chronically ill. Martinez explains.



“Can persons quarantine on their own if they live alone?”

“No. Well, no and yes in the sense that persons who are returning and who are not chronically ill. So the only consideration for having someone quarantine at this time at home and under strict surveillance and communications with the Ministry of Health is if some is really has been chronically ill, if being outside that space actually puts them at great risks because they have an affected immune system because of poor health. Those cases are taken on a case by case basis and there must be medical evidence to substantiate the request and in those cases absolutely there is consideration for that and there are very clear guidelines that are shared by the Ministry of Health about what to do and what not to do.”
