Government is moving ahead with plans to allow restaurants and bars to resume full service and serve alcohol to fully vaccinated patrons from Monday (November 1, 2021).
Capacity, however, will remain at 50 per cent.
On October 16, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley announced that restaurants and bars under the TT Safe Zone initiative will be allowed to resume full service from November 1.
Speaking at the Ministry of Health’s virtual media briefing on Saturday, Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said this will go ahead as planned.
He said: “This promise that the prime minister indicated at that time will come into effect on November 1 at the same capacity of 50 per cent. That is the only change that I have been authorised by the prime minister to announce.”
“In keeping with his indication, safe zone entities will be allowed to sell alcohol on (the) premises for consumption,” Deyalsingh added.
The TT Safe Zone initiative took effect on October 11.
