The Barkeepers & Operators Association of Trinidad & Tobago is hopeful that the Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, would relax the present restrictions on the Food and Beverage sector.
In a release issued this afternoon, BOATT said restaurants and bars throughout the country have reinvented themselves, formed alliances, simulated situations, gone through rigorous trainings and formulated safety measures and protocols.
“For us, it’s not about selling something, but trying to solve something during this social and economic downturn so we can all come out better in the end. We are all trying to navigate the ‘New Normal.’”
The Association is also asking the Health Ministry’s COVID Unit, which comprises of Public Health Inspectors and Police Officers, to enforce the Public Health regulations and guidelines so as to ensure full and proper adherence.
“They must be very vigilant and firm in the executions of their duties on non-compliant businesses, this is the only way Trinidad and Tobago can move forward and win the battle against COVID 19.”
