2 negative COVID-19 test results no longer needed

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Aug. 20, 2020– Dr. Marvin Manzanero, Director of Health Services, in line with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendations, has said that while previously a person had needed two negative PCR test results in order to be allowed to go back to work, persons whose COVID-19 status was in question or who exhibited any possible symptoms of the illness, will now be allowed to exit self-isolation and return to the workplace and other activities after 13 days if certain conditions are met.

That return to the workplace will only be possible, however, if after the first 10 days, he or she has not exhibited any signs or symptoms of the virus, and no fever or respiratory problems appear in the subsequent three days.

After the 13-day period, even without two negative PCRs, the person should be able to go home or return to work.
