PM Holds Firm on Vaccination Proof at Restaurants—No Exemption for Tourists

Also by the end of the year, frontline workers will be required to be vaccinated. It is an incoming regulation, according to PM Bricneo, that will no longer give these people the option to present a negative COVID-19 test every two weeks. He also addressed the push back from the tourism sector over the vaccine mandate for restaurants. 

 

Prime Minister of Belize, John Briceno

“We will have by the end of this year, one of the recommendations are, is that all the frontline workers will have to be vaccinated. This about go and get test and come back, you now have to be vaccinated to go into the work place, to go into the restaurants. As it is right now restaurants are, inside dining are fifty percent but they must be vaccinated.”

“I am sure you know the tourism sector is concerned about this issue.”

 

Prime Minister of Belize, John Briceno

“Well, I am sorry about that, but they have to. Well, when you go to the United States and you go to a restaurant, you have to be vaccinated. You have to show your card or else you can’t go in. The President from Brazil, they refused his entrance into a restaurant, actually they have a picture of him eating pizza on the street side. So, if the tourist back home in the U.S has to be vaccinated back home to go into a restaurant, why should we make it any different here?”
