PETALING JAYA: Members of the public who visited the Taman Megah and Jalan Othman markets from April 8 to 25 and April 5 to 18 respectively have been urged to go for Covid-19 screening at health clinics here.

Petaling District Officer Johary Anuar said both the Taman Megah and Jalan Othman markets in Petaling Jaya were shut due to Covid-19 cases.

"Those who visited the seafood section at the Jalan Othman market and those who visited the vegetable corner at the Taman Megah market during the mentioned period should go for the Covid-19 screening," said Johary.

The public who visited the Taman Megah market have to fill in this online form to see if they require screening.

Meanwhile, Bukit Gasing assemblyman Rajiv Rishyakaran said those who had visited the Jalan Othman market during the specified period should fill up an online form first.

He said the Klinik Kesihatan Taman Medan would assess all those who have filled in the form and only call in for testing those deemed to be at high risk.

"Many will not get called in. If you're not called in for government Covid-19 testing but are worried, you can still get tested at any private facility.

"All market traders will undergo testing this week, and the market will only be reopened after the traders are cleared to be free of Covid-19," said Rajiv.
