Reopening Bars, Restaurants, Gyms & Cinemas in T&T - The new normal

Postby Duane 3NE 2NR » June 17th, 2020, 1:48 am

The Ministry of Health presents the Guidelines for Restaurants & Bars and for Cinemas & Theatres in preparation for the next Phase of the Reopening of Trinidad and Tobago.
To view these documents, visit the COVID-19 Guidelines and Regulations section of the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 page here -
http://www.health.gov.tt/sitepages/default.aspx?id=297

Two standout measures being suggested are

Restaurants & Bars

Cinemas
Screenshot 2020-06-17 at 1.47.03 AM.jpg


Gymns
1. Provide physical guides, such as tape on floors and signage, to ensure that individuals remain at least 6 feet apart while using exercise equipment such as treadmills, weights, bikes, benches, leg press, curls & extensions, ropes and other
related machines;

2. Modify the layout of the establishment to ensure the equipment remains 6 feet apart with greater distancing for treadmills and other high-exertion aerobic fitness equipment. Where possible, install physical barriers to segregate exercise areas or create physical distancing . Mark off equipment that is not for use;

3. The Instructor and client should maintain a physical distance at least 6 feet apart for individual sessions and 10-12 feet apart for group session sessions ;

4. Rotate and stagger shifts to limit the number of employees in the establishment at any one time;

5. Institute the use of a scheduling system for clients in order to manage the number of persons within the facility at any given point in time. Each client is allowed only 60 minutes in the Gym and Fitness Centre;

6. Ensure that each client entering the facility is given a briefing on the new measures utilized (e.g. how to clean and sanitize equipment, adherence to the physical distancing practices);

7. Clients must bring their own towels and exercise mats to the facility. There should be no sharing of gym towels, mats or other related items at this time;

8. No circuit training, where multiple pieces of equipment are used in quick rotation, to be permitted at this time;

9. Group session exercises, such as aerobics, should be conducted in open air setting. If this is not possible, then there should be sufficient physical distancing, of 10-12 feet apart, with the use of face shields by instructors and clients . With aerobics and spin rooms, only 10 clients are allowed within a square footage of 1,000;

10. Where accessories (e.g. resistance bands, foam rollers) are provided by the facility, implement a check-out system to ensure that each item is returned to staff for sanitization after every use;

11. Clients must disinfect any equipment utilised, immediately after use, with disinfecting wipes and/or suitable disinfectant and disposable cloth-like material for wiping surfaces as provided by the facility. If clients are unable to disinfect equipment after use, the equipment should be immediately attended to by a staff member for sanitization before another client is allowed to utilize the equipment;

12. Clients are encouraged to bring personnel disinfectant wipes and other related items to the Gym and Fitness Centres for use;

13. Client contact data must be collected for every client (time of entry and exit, class attended or trainer utilized) to ensure that proper contact tracing can be conducted if the need arises; and

14. Juice bars and other food services should adhere to the Food Safety and Restaurant and Bars Guidelines.

Can’t justify not opening up when all local cases pretty much isolated. Employment is taking an unnecessary hit people free not to partake in going to bars, cinemas and restaurants if they feel unsafe but when last have we had a positive case locally ? Borders still closed ..... open up.

Borders should be open once we have mandatory quarentines and testing

We need to re-open and build back confidence in the economy. People habits have changed and they not spending, we need to change that asap otherwise we looking at an economic collapse.

Can we handle mandatory quarantine and monitoring with open borders? Two flights will overwhelm the system. That’s two weeks of boarding and medical testing for hundreds of people.
Keep the borders closed so people can feel comfortable and go out and do business. Bring in people on a managed basis and then slowly open up to countries that have the situation under control. So definitely not USA

Real Estate prices also coming down, no more expats driving up the prices and the USD dollar demand for rentals!
Families spending more time together, more people learning how to cook and become more self dependant.
People spending more on necessities and less on luxury items.


This has taught the world to be more cautious and to also be cleaner...
i find we should continue to limit public liming, we can repoen the beaches, but have guidelines in place and have lifeguards given the power to enforce Social distancing.

Let people do what they want and spend on what they want. No need to force your preferences on others.

Am in no way forcing anything onto anyone, but merely stating that along with keeping our people safe we have gotten better habits.

Dunno who allyuh fellas fooling.

Trinis will be Trinis.

Allyuh really feel people “change”?

People are “new normal” because that’s what the advisories tell them to do.

Example:

A hardware has a sink to wash hands outside. Everybody hadda wash hands right? Because that’s what the sign says and maybe someone outside is making sure they do.

Another hardware does not have a sink.
How many people will question why there is no sink or even refuse to shop?

To some people its still a burden to take a few minutes to wash their hands or even put on a mask, and a relief when not required or enforced.

So the attitude is for people to have masks in their hands or pocket and look for a sign/instruction to see if to wear it or not. People looking around for green lights to see all who not wearing masks or sanitizing so they can do the same.

We have learnt nothing from this.

May be usual hours
The virus does not stop spreading after 8pm
I think the early hours closure was to ensure less people out at night and easier for Police to enforce during the stricter lockdown period.
It's more important for everyone to follow the protocols for social distancing and sanitization right through.

Not really bothered by bars, restaurants, cinemas etc. Made one trip to trincity mall last saturday and im not so keen on going back. I understand the hand sanitizer thing but is every store you go in, level hand sanitizer (fyi, too much of it, is not good for your skin)

Only thing id miss is meh lil carshow, drags and other car meets

sanitizer is supposed to be a second resort, if u are unable to use soap and water... cloth masks are just to be used, so that the professional n95 masks are left available for the frontline workers...
