Belize continues to be the only country in the America’s region mainland to be COVID-19 free after their last 2 active cases fully recovered on May 5th, 2020 officially making no active cases in the country. Belize seemed to be going through a positive path as it has not reported no new COVID-19 case since April 13th, 2020. Overall Belize only registered 2 deaths from COVID-19 and 18 total cases, with April 13th, 2020 being the last reported spike of 4 cases. The country’s success towards this virus comes after its prompt action of closing all border’s and implementing strict quarantine measures.
With more than 40 days without a reported new cases of COVID-19 case, the country is slowly reopening for domestic travel while planning for international travelers. Belize is planning to reopen for international visitors on July 1st, 2020. This date is still tentative as it depends on no further COVID-19 cases in Belize. Despite Belize remains COVID-19 free, bordering countries such as Mexico and Guatemala continue to see daily increase in active cases and deaths of COVID-19. Therefore, the Government of Belize believes that the only port of entry into the country that could possibly open with precautionary measures will be the Philip Goldson International Airport.
The Philip Goldson International Airport is the official international airport in the country, located in Ladyville, Belize District which is just a 10-minute drive outside Belize City.
