GOB prepares for vaccine mandate for public buildings Oct 1

Magali Marin Young

The Government of Belize is only a couple days away from enacting its October first vaccine regulations. Referred to as a soft mandate, persons entering public owned buildings, which include Government owned buildings, statutory bodies, social security and public health care facilities, must provide proof of vaccination. In the event you have not yet taken your jabs, you have the option to present a negative PCR or rapid COVID test result. The government’s legal team and the health response task force are still working to iron out the details of the regulations before they are made public later this week. Attorney General of Belize Magali Marin Young was a guest on Open Your Eyes Morning Show where she provided some details and made the distinction between a mandatory vaccine mandate and the proposed government regulations.


Magali Marin Young, Attorney General

“Let’s be clear, there is a big difference between making vaccine mandatory and the proposed regulations the government intend to enact, to come into effect the first of October. Vaccine mandate require every citizen to take a vaccine. That is not what is coming into effect the first of October. What is coming into effect is for you to access public facility such as government building, building owned by statutory bodies, social security, DFC etc. You will be required to show your vaccine card or to produce a negative PCR taken within 46 hours or negative PCR test 94 hours. There will be exception to this, but it will be medical emergencies. But, if you are doing your day to day check up you do need to produce your vaccine, or negative PCR or rapid test.”
