People who were previously stranded in San Pedro Town are now being given the opportunity to return to Belize City. A boat with passengers arrived in the city this morning. Each person was carrying a letter that states their name, their reason for leaving San Pedro, and that they have been screened for COVID-19. It also states where they will be travelling to in case they are stopped by police officers and that they are required to go under quarantine for 14 days. The letter expires after 24 hours. One of the persons who arrived, Egbert Bertram, stated that he is glad to be back on the mainland since he was living in adverse conditions on the island.
He also stated what the screening process was like, and why it took so long for them to be let off the island. Additionally, he stated that there are still many others waiting to return to the mainland.
Since Bertram initially went to San Pedro looking for a job, he stated that he is not sure what will happen now, but he has supplies that were donated to him by Haven House.///
