Teachers Exempt From December 15 Vaccine Mandate

Francis Fonseca

Teachers are exempted from the December fifteenth vaccination mandate for public officers imposed by the Government of Belize. While teachers fall under the public sector, they are not classified as public officers. So, come December fifteenth when public officers will be mandated to show proof of vaccination, teachers will be spared. Minister of Education Francis Fonseca spoke briefly on this at an event in Belize City today.


Francis Fonseca, Minister of Education

“As we have already agreed with the Union, the position remains the same. Those teachers who are not vaccinated will have to continue producing every two weeks, a test hoping that they are negative. So, a negative test every two weeks if they have chosen not to get the vaccine.”
