Belize Removes National Face Mask Mandate on April 1, 2022

by Louise Roe

As COVID cases continue to dwindle across Belize, officials lifts the national mask mandate as of April 1, 2022, allowing persons to remove their face masks in open-air and indoor spaces. The relaxed face mask requirements in Belize follow on the heels of allowing the fully vaccinated to enter Belize without testing for COVID-19 and getting rid of the countrywide curfew. Belize joins other nations in the Caribbean that have either dropped their national mask mandate or relaxed restrictions, like Jamaica and B.V.I.

In March, the Government announced the removal of its countrywide curfew. Additionally, bars, casinos, and nightclubs are now allowed to open without any limitations. As Belize removes face mask requirements, this full reopening comes in time for Easter travel and the peak of Spring Break. Now, travelers can continue to enjoy Belize at their leisure, without any remaining restrictions.
