Bar association: No reason to continue COVID restrictions on businesses


    Barkeepers and operators believe that there is no reason to justify continued COVID-19 restrictions on businesses in T&T.

    The association representing the industry, BOATT, today referred to a statement by the World Health Organization’s Dr David Nabarro.

    He has been quoted as saying that the WHO does not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of controlling COVID-19.

    BOATT insists that bars and restaurants are on lockdown as the current restrictions have taken away the basis on which they operate.

    The association is urging businesses to follow the health protocols but also states that businesses in breach should feel the full brunt of the law.
