Belize’s International Airport Reopens
The sudden onset of numerous COVID-19 confirmed cases in March 2020 forced the tiny country of Belize to close its borders and implement a nationwide state of emergency to protect its people. Having been closed to visitors for more than six months, Belize is preparing to reopen its International Airport to leisure travelers on October 1, 2020.
The reopening comes on the heels of a five-phase travel reopening plan along with the launch of a Tourism Gold Standard Recognition Program. Both measures aim to enhance and enforce standard operating procedures to ensure optimum cleanliness, safe social interactions, and the like, while allowing visitors to enjoy their stay with minimal impact from the changes brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic.
