Mask Wearing Optional But Personal Safety Necessary, Cautions Supermarket Association

The Supermarket Association of Trinidad and Tobago, in accordance with the lifting of the mask mandate on Sunday, advises that mask wearing remains optional to customers moving beyond this threshold towards easing of restrictions.

It says supermarkets will ensure the high levels of sanitation remains in place as health protocols including fogging of premises, misting of trolleys and baskets continue while markers placed across the stores remain visible.

In a media release on Thursday, the SATT urged customers to carry a strong sense of personal responsibility for their own protection as they go about their shopping needs.

It reminds the public to measure their distance, ensure pocket sanitiser is in their possession and be mindful of their neighbour in the aisles and at the register.

It is strongly recommended, however, to wear a mask for personal protection as the case may be during peak shopping times.

Staff who are also positioned on a continuous basis in offices and public spaces are strongly urged to mask as necessary for their own protection.

SATT said it welcomes the lifting of masks as the country takes one more step towards the resumption of the new normal while ensuring checks are put in place for health and safety procedures.
