Belize Covid Notice

Here at Black Rock Lodge, we have spent the last year working tirelessly to prepare for operating in the era of COVID-19. From implementing intensive new systems and procedures for cleanliness, to ensuring that mask wearing and social distancing are strictly adhered to, we have gone above and beyond to enhance our naturally resilient location.
Black Rock Lodge is privileged to be in a setting and have the infrastructure that is inherently conducive to preventing the spread of COVID-19. All of our cabins are independent with no nearby neighboring rooms. All of our walkways and public spaces are outdoors, and our restaurant is open-air with ventilation on all sides. When the breeze is calm, high-powered ceiling fans keep air circulating. Plus, the private nature of our tours means contact with others can be limited.

Gold Standard Certificate

We are Gold Standard Certified – see certificate

Black Rock Lodge is Gold Standard Certified as a lodge and tour operator. These standards are extremely vigorous and ensure that all lodge areas are operating with the highest safety standards. All of those procedures are documented and supervised by the Government of Belize. Please find details on the Gold Standard certification here: Belize Enhanced Hotel and Restaurant Guideline (June 2020)

As part of the program, we have Gold Standard Managers who are in charge of overseeing these new protocols and meeting with all of our guests to discuss how the procedures work and address any concerns you might have. Throughout the lodge, you will find safety signage, handwashing stations, hand sanitizer, and social distancing designations to help everyone enjoy their vacation as safely as possible.

SOME EXAMPLES OF NEW SYSTEMS AT THE LODGE INCLUDE:
  • the option of meals delivered to your private porch
  • safety-glass screens between our guests and reception staff to assist in eliminating unnecessary contact
  • a no-touch menu in restaurant
  • Intense cleaning and sanitizing systems that meet rigorous standards

These new protocols are in place to ensure safety for our guests and staff remains the highest priority. We are delighted to welcome you to Black Rock Lodge, and we are so pleased you are considering us for your Belizean adventure. We are proud and delighted that enjoying Black Rock Lodge through the highlights that have always been here – hiking, kayaking, swimming in the pool or river, enjoying wildlife and the local attractions – can all be easily and safely accomplished in this new COVID-19 reality.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TRAVEL TO BELIZE DURING COVID-19

What is the Belize Health App and its role in visitors coming to Belize?

All guests coming to Belize must register for The Belize Health App before entering the country. The App is free and allows for Belize’s Ministry of Health to check in with guests throughout their stay. If a new case arises while a visitor is on vacation, contact tracing will be much easier, and notification of other parties who may have been within your vicinity will be quick and efficient, enabling us to #stopthespread as best as possible. The Belize Health App is now available for download on iOS and Android devices.
