Created : 7 April 2020
The Supermarket Association of Trinidad and Tobago (SATT) is urging customers to wear masks when they go to the supermarkets.
The Association issued an advisory on Tuesday, one day after Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley announced that citizens will be required to wear masks in public, to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
SATT advised that 'non-essential' headwear and eyewear such as hats and shades will be prohibited in supermarkets.
It said this is for the safety and security of all.
On Tuesday, Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said masks will be distributed to the public soon.
