The Department of Horticultural Services (HSD) advises the public that photography for weddings and commercial purposes is prohibited on the grounds of the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) in Port-of-Spain until further notice.
The department also discourages people from using the facility for picnics or group meetings.
A statement released Tuesday said the measures are in line with the government’s recently announced COVID-19 guidelines.
It states: “The RBG site will remain open to the public during this time from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, people are kindly reminded to follow the COVID-19 protocols by ensuring that a mask is worn at all times and social distancing is taking place. “
