Govt considers asking incoming citizens to pay $$ for quarantine
"Trinidad and Tobago National Racquet Centre in Tacarigua which initially housed the 33 citizens who came from Barbados that would have cost roughly $1 million to set up. We had to add to that - catering, staff costs, and consumables. The Debe/ Penal campus cost roughly that, but then the UWI spent some money - a few hundred thousand dollars for perimeter fencing and work. That does not include meals, consumables, and staffing costs. The Brooklyn Center - rented at $110,000- 120,000 per month, initially three months. That center has been waiting for a group of persons for a week and a half. Balandra - $85,000 per month. That was for first set of cruisers that came in from Guadeloupe. Those are some of the costs", said Deyalsingh.
