The San Fernando City Corporation will not be allowing food vendors to ply their trade on the Cross Crossing strip, come Monday, 19th July.
Although government has given the all clear for food operators to return to business on a limited and phased basis, San Fernando Mayor Junia Regrello has told vendors to hold strain for another two weeks, as Government begins its mass vaccination rollout with the arrival of 800,000 doses of Sinopharm vaccines today.
He said “The council made a decision Tuesday to hold off on vending at Cross Crossing in particular, based on the nature of the activity there until August 2, hopefully.”
The vendors have stated that they are willing to do deliveries, curb side pick-up as well as on-the-spot preparation of items on their respective menus.
However, Regrello said that was not practical given the time constraint in which they operated on evenings and the curfew which is in effect from 9 pm.
He added “Cross Crossing is unique and attractive but it has its challenges,” as he cited the limited space, which will cause congregation with little chance of social distancing.
