Trinidad & Tobago: High Street business owners, vendors on restrictions: ‘We look for that!’

BUSINESS owners and vendors at High Street, San Fernando, said people should not blame the Prime Minister for reintroducing stricter restrictions but rather, blame themselves for being indisciplined over the past month. Despite being distraught, many of them collectively said, “We look for that.”

On Monday afternoon, at Dr Rowley’s highly-anticipated press conference, he announced the closure of all non-essential retail services and all food services until May 23.

Minutes after this announcement, Newsday walked along High Street to get people’s views. At most of the businesses, workers were still tuned in to the press conference as it had reached the question and answer segment.

Usha Patel of D&G Jewellery Store said it is better to be safe than sorry, so she found the restrictions reasonable. She said people’s lives are more important than jewellery.
