On the heels of the reports that another employee of the Tru Valu Supermarket has tested positive for COVID19, the Supermarket Association (SATT) is making another case for its members, who they deem as frontline workers, to be provided with vaccines.
Tru Valu revealed on Saturday, that one of its workers at the Trincity branch tested positive for COVID19 and that it was not related to a prior incident at the same location in March.
SATT President, Rajiv Diptee, speaking to Newsday, said “We understand what needs to be done and when a case happens, as it inevitably will, we just follow the protocols and inform the authorities.”
He admitted that many of their workers have tested positive for the virus, adding “it just does not make the news.”
According to Diptee, it has become a way of life to constantly sanitise and fog the premises as supermarkets have not been spared.
Diptee said his association’s application for vaccinations, is before the Ministry of Health and it is pending review.
