“Absolutely disappointing and unacceptable”…the view shared by the Barkeepers & Operators Association of Trinidad and Tobago (BOATT), following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Saturday of a further two weeks wait for bars and restaurants, on whether they would be allowed to resume normal operations.
BOATT in a Facebook post, said two more weeks is “absolutely disappointing and unacceptable”.
“The banks don’t want to hear two weeks again! The landlords don’t want to hear two weeks again!” the association said.
The PM said yesterday that Government is cognisant of the pain felt by those who were expecting an ease-up on restrictions in their areas.
He urged the population to continue to adhere to the regulations in place which would put the country in a position to be able to lift more restrictions soon.
Bars have been restricted to a take-away-only service as customers are not allowed to gather and “lime” on the premises.
