AS NIGHT and morning markets within the jurisdiction of the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) prepare to resume operations in stages from Monday (June 15), the local authority has issued a set of guidelines for both visitors and traders.
Those without facemasks or with a temperature above 37.5°C will be denied entry to the markets and only two members of a family are allowed in.
Visitors are also only allowed to be in the market for a maximum of 30 minutes.
Visitors will need to register via the Selangkah system or write their details in a registration book at the entrance to enable contact tracing.
The notice also said there must be a 1m social distance between those queuing up to get into the market and cashless transactions were encouraged.
"The entry point must be different from the exit point and the number of visitors allowed in will depend on the size of the market," MPSJ said in its notice.
The local authority said there needs to be a minimum 2.5m distance between stalls or canopies at the market.
Morning market traders will have to take turns on alternate days to run their businesses, while night market traders will take turns every alternate week.
While MPSJ will monitor compliance with the guidelines, traders can also enlist Rela personnel to help out.
MSPJ Licensing director Muhammad Azli Miswan said there would be a briefing for traders' representatives at the council's headquarters on Monday.
“The aim of the briefing is so that traders understand the new normal for operating at night and morning markets. We need the traders’ cooperation in order for the guidelines to be successfully adhered to,” he said.
The information will also be announced in traders' groups and uploaded to the MPSJ website Monday.
