Trinidad & Tobago: Cops to manage grocery crowds this weekend

As Covid-19 cases continue to skyrocket, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) will be out in full force to manage the month-end crowds at groceries and supermarkets.

Supermarkets Associ­ation of Trinidad and Tobago (SATT) president Rajiv Diptee confirmed this collaboration with the TTPS, following his call on Tuesday for one person per family to shop at supermarkets.

“Yesterday, SATT met with Acting Commissioner of Police (ACP) Wendell Williams, as well as various divisional heads, where the TTPS agreed their offi­cers will visit super­markets, especially du­ring this month-end weekend.

They will work closely with SATT to address any issue of clusters at supermarkets generally, including gatherings that may be deemed high risk where transmission of the virus is concerned,” he said.

Diptee urged the public to adhere to the protocols issued by the Ministry of Health and not to let their guard down as pandemic fatigue creeps in.
