DBKL releases SOP for open-air markets and bazaars

ONLY two members of a family may go to the open air markets and bazaars in Kuala Lumpur at one time and they must be at least 13 years old.

Under the City Hall's (DBKL) morning market, open-air market, night market and bazaar standard operating procedures (SOP) for the recovery movement control order (MCO), markets in selected areas will be allowed to resume operations in stages starting June 15.

"Applications to open these markets can be made to the Licensing and Petty Traders Development Department starting June 10.

"Visitors are also only allowed to be in the market for not more than 30 minutes.

"There will be temperature checks and those with a reading of 37.5°C and above will not be allowed in.

"Visitors also need to register themselves with the MySejahtera mobile app for contact tracing.

"Movement in the markets will need to adopt a one-way system with separate entry and exit points, while the maximum number of visitors at one time will be determined by DBKL depending the market's location," it said in a statement on Monday (June 8).

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had announced on June 7 that more activities could be carried out during the recovery MCO period, including the reopening of such markets.

Under the SOP, traders are encouraged to wear face masks, face shields and gloves at all times.

"Those who fail to adhere to the SOP will be fined or risk having their goods seized or their stalls closed," said the statment.

The SOP will be effective from June 15 to Aug 31.
