The Anna Regina Town Council took a recent decision to close the Anna Regina Market, in another attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
On Friday, the Mayor of the Anna Regina Township, Rajendra Prabhulall convened a special meeting with his Town Clerk and Councillors.
It was at this meeting that the decision was made by the council to halt all markets and vending along the roadside indefinitely.
Within the town of Anna Regina, there are two major markets, and a number of other private business establishments.
The council pointed out that there will be a ‘temporary market,’ which will be held every Friday from 07:00hrs to 13:00hrs.
The Mayor also underlined the fact that while an exception is given for vending on Friday, social distancing should be adhered to. On that note, he added, just essential goods, such as fruits, vegetables and other food items, should be sold on Fridays.
Restaurants, on the other hand, will only be allowed to do take away services and will have to be closed by 18:00hrs.
