In a release on Thursday, the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts said the national performance spaces under its remit remain open, with very strict adherence to the public health regulations.
These spaces are Queen's Hall, Naparima Bowl, the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA) and the Southern Academy for the Performing Arts (SAPA).
The ministry added that the management of the spaces will continue to ensure that the regulations and additional measures put in place earlier this year are enforced.
“There will be increased vigilance in keeping with the letter, spirit and intent of the Public Health Regulations.”
It said the regulations allow a maximum 50 per cent capacity.
“Additional health and safety measures in effect at the national performance spaces include modified seating arrangements to allow for physical distance, no congregation in front of the stage or aisles and no unnecessary moving during performances,” it added.
Tourism, Culture and the Arts Minister Randall Mitchell emphasised the importance of users following the regulations, the release said. He said these protocols will combat the spread of covid19.
“We are committed to mitigating the spread of the virus and will do our part to ensure compliance,” the release quoted Mitchell as saying.
