Wear Yo Mask!

Michael Peyrefitte

While the government does away with the curfew, one thing that will become part of our daily lives is the face mask.  There are currently three active cases of COVID-19 in the country and it is anticipated that when the P.G.I.A. opens on August fifteenth, Belize might experience a wave of imported cases.   Attorney General Michael Peyrefitte stated that every member of the public must wear a face mask when in a public space or place.

“Social distancing, we must maintain that six feet whenever we can maintain that six feet apart. There will be some exceptions but whenever we can social distant the law will require us to social distance. The second big thing is this, the mask. You must wear your mask every chance you get any time you can wear it, wear it. Especially in public you will be require for you to wear and we will be enforcing it. You see it is this, all bar can open now. All night club can open now. All shops can open now. You can practically do all the legally social things that we used to do before. You can do all of them now. However, you must wear a mask and in certain circumstance you don’t have to. So I don’t know it will work but if somebody open their night club ad party, you have to wear a mask. I see people in some bars and restaurants over the weekend and nobody has on mask. You will be arrested. You must wear a mask. If you have to kiss somebody in the club, take it off, kiss them and put it on back. But you must wear a mask. If you ask me and you are using your head I don’t know why anybody would want to go in any club to party and mix up during COVID-19 but if people want to go it is their business.”
