Covid-19: Sibu Central Market closure extended to Feb 19

SIBU (Bernama): The closure of Sibu Central Market, initially scheduled to end Sunday (Feb 14) will be extended until Feb 19 following an increase in Covid-19 cases there.

Sibu Municipal Council (MPS) chairman Clarence Ting Ing Horh said the decision was made following a report received from the Sibu Division Health Office over the matter.

"Our priority is to ensure the health and safety of traders and the general public.

"All traders at the Sibu Central Market are also advised to undergo Covid-19 screening tests at the Health Ministry’s drive-through swab test facility at the Sarawak state library building here, ” he said in a statement Saturday (Feb 13).

The Sibu Central Market, which has over 1,100 retail spaces, was initially closed from Feb 2 to 3 and from Feb 8 to 14 due to the same reason. - Bernama
