MIRI: After being temporarily closed since May 25 due to reports of positive Covid-19 cases among the stallholders, Miri Central Market at Brooke Road here is now reopened to the public.
Businesses at the market commenced on June 14 (Monday).
During the closure period, the local council has carried out massive cleaning and sanitisation works at the market.
In connection with the re-opening, the local council has reminded both the stallholders and customers to observe the standard operating procedures (SOPs) such as checking in through the MySejahtera app or customer’s logbook before entering the market, wearing face mask, maintaining physical distancing and, as much as possible, avoiding close contact with each other.
The local council has also notified the stallholders that they could only be permitted to resume trading if they have already undergone Covid-19 swab tests with negative results, as well as completed quarantine for 14 days (certified in writing by the Miri Health Department).
They are also required to bring along their result slip of the swab test when trading so that it is available for checking by the enforcement personnel.
