On Saturday, December 5, 2020, Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley announced that supermarkets will be permitted to open for 24 hours from December 10, 2020 until January 3, 2021.
Supermarket Association of Trinidad and Tobago (SATT) today confirms, that this move does not imply that supermarkets will open for 24 hours every day from December 10 until January 3.
“As we have done previously, each supermarket will publish their respective hours of operation, as well as the dates on which those changes take effect, to advise customers of amended opening and closing times.”
SATT said they’ll join the Prime Minister, in reinforcing to the wider public the importance of adhering to all required safety practices, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
SATT is advising shoppers to plan their shopping and to aim to complete as early as possible, at the stores and to adhere to proper handwashing, wearing of suitable masks and social distancing while in-store.
