Bars are Still under COVID-19 Regulations

Kareem Musa

Although the weekend curfew has been pushed back a couple of hours to midnight, this does not mean Belizeans can return to partying as normal.  Home Affairs Minister Kareem Musa gave a warning to bar operators who are opening shop to sell liquor.  Musa says the Statutory Instrument is clear when it comes to these establishments.


Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs

“I want to advise all bars that the statutory instrument has not been changed in relation to bars. What is in place, again, and this worth repeating, is that only restaurants are allowed to open at this time. So if it is that a bar is open and not serving food with alcohol they are in direct breach of the statutory instrument. So, I want to discourage bar owners to please pay attention to the statutory instrument and what you are allowed to do under the law.”
