Health Minister Says P.G.I.A. Will Be Ready for Reopening

We also asked Health Minister Pablo Marin about the reopening of the Philip Goldson International Airport. Commercial flights are expected to land starting August fifteenth. The Ministry of Health is working with the departments of immigration and customs to make sure that the airport is fully ready to receive tourists and that all healthcare protocols are being adhered to ensure maximum safety and protection for the staff.  Minister Marin says he believes that everything will be in place for August fifteenth.

“We are trying our best. I think we have done as much as we can. I think the final touches are coming. The rapid tests are here. We are doing the test to see if the rapid tests are good enough. So all of that is in place. So I think yes, I think we will be ready.”

“What is your opinion that after August fifteenth that Belizeans here will be on a flight to go to the US for shopping and stuff like that?”

“I think those people should hold on a little bit and just say let me wait, let me wait and see what will happen after the reopening. Let me see if we will have an outbreak. It is just for us to be conscience again about the situation we are in and the situation that we when we go out there, there is no control and then you can bring that to the country back.”
