All Sea Park market traders to undergo Covid-19 screening on Oct 28 (Updated)

ALL traders and employees at the Sea Park market in Petaling Jaya will undergo screening for Covid-19 on Wednesday (Oct 28).

Petaling Jaya mayor Datuk Mohd Sayuthi said this was decided after a morning meeting held by the Petaling District Health Office and the management of the market on Saturday (Oct 24).

“The Petaling District Health Office also told the management that the market will be closed until further notice, ” said Sayuthi.

Earlier on Saturday, the mayor confirmed that a 73-year-old vegetable trader from the market in Petaling Jaya tested positive for Covid-19 on Thursday (Oct 22).

The trader has about four shoplots in the market and he supplies vegetables to other traders in the market besides selling it to the public.

On the trader and his staff, Mohd Sayuthi said that the Health Ministry is investigating how many staff the trader had and added contact tracing is still being done.

On Friday(Oct 23) evening, Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lim Yi Wei said in a Facebook post that the market will be closed until further notice due to a detection of a Covid-19 case.

Earlier in April, the failure of the privately-owned Sea Park wet market management to control the crowd and ensure social distancing had forced the Petaling Jaya City Council to order a closure.
