The Supermarket Association of TT (SATT) assured that there is no need to resort to panic buying as there are enough stocks in the country.
In a release sent on Friday the SATT said there is at least six months' supply of grocery stocks and supermarkets would remain open during the period as they are categorised as an essential service.
However, it reminded the public to adhere to their “one shopper per family” policy put in place last week.
“Supermarkets have been reporting the continuous need to remind customers to wear their masks properly and that staff have been abused by customers when trying to implement the covid19 regulations. We remind shoppers that supermarket employees are frontline workers who have been doing yeoman service since the beginning of the Pandemic,” said Rajiv Diptee, president of SATT.
