President of the Members Club Association, Sherry Persad, is pleased that her sector has been given a lifeline.
She said the ability to reopen at 50 per cent capacity is a much-wanted relief.
Persad said if they had continued with further restrictions, they would have seen some closures for sure.
She told the Express: “At this point in time, we are happy to have that window to be opened. Our employees have been in a very uncomfortable position, both financially and mentally. Many of our industry employees are single parents, so reopening will bring relief although there is no eating or drinking. We have all intentions to work with protocols and we are hoping that next two weeks we will have more hours to operate.”
