Belize Classified As High Risk Destination for Travellers

Belize has been classified as a “high” risk category destination for travelers by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On Monday, the C.D.C. announced that Belize, along with the Bahamas, Montserrat, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and the southern African country of Eswatini were moved to Level Three or high risk for Covid-19. Belize was one of four countries to have previously been listed as Level Two or classified as being of “moderate” risk. The “Level Three Covid-19 High” category now applies to countries that have had more than one hundred cases per hundred thousand residents in the past twenty-eight days. Meanwhile, Level Four, which was previously labeled as the highest risk category, is now reserved only for special circumstances, such as extremely high case counts, or the detection of a new variant of concern or health care infrastructure collapse. The C.D.C. had adjusted its classification system in April and under the new system, no destination has been placed at Level Four so far.
