Will other villages in the north be placed under a lockdown?

Dr. Marvin Manzanero

And while the Guinea Grass Village Council and NAVO champion the lifting of the lockdown of the village – D.H.S. Marvin Manzanero says that the spread of the virus in the Orange Walk District now appears similar to what has transpired on San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. With an increase in numbers across several other communities, Manzanero says it is expected that a decision may be forthcoming for other villages in the Orange Walk district in the coming days.

“Orange Walk seems to have a similar situation as Ambergris Caye. We are tallying all the different villages so that I can give that to the minister for Cabinet tomorrow to make other decisions that needs to be made. I know today in particular they are looking at the community of San Felipe, August Pine Ridge and Blue Creek I believe for potential situations that may be there.”
