More than a dozen new business categories have been given the proverbial green light by Cabinet to recommence operations.
They will be able to commence operations as of Tuesday, April 28, ‘in accordance with Curfew Order 14’. a government-commissioned statement said.
“These newly approved businesses can now receive cargo and other supplies from Port Purcell and St Thomas Bay Jetty to prepare for inspections in order to reopen,” the release stated.
The new categories include businesses that sell commercial and household supplies and appliances, office supplies and equipment, and electronic stores.
Restaurants (for delivery and takeout only), beauty products supply stores, courier stores and freight agents, veterinarian practices, printing, graphics and signage supplies, flower shops, real estate agents, department and clothing stores, marine stores and boatyard operations also form part of the list.
Churches and places of worship and funeral homes were also included.
Business categories not included on the Cabinet-approved lists must remain closed until the relevant authorities have approved their reopening, the release added.
