Ramadan bazaar in Kedah ordered to close for not following SOP

ALOR SETAR: The Bukit Nyamuk Ramadan bazaar in Kuala Nerang here has been ordered to close indefinitely after the Padang Terap district council found that traders and visitors had failed to comply with standard operating procedures (SOP).

Its president Datuk Shuhaime Abd Rahman in a statement said the bazaar would be closed from Thursday (April 22).

"All the traders are required to comply with the order.

"This is a precautionary measure to avoid the spread of Covid-19 in the community," it said.

The statement did not indicate how long the bazaar would remain closed.

The reasons behind the closure were non-compliance with SOP including failure to prepare customer registration tools and no control at the entrance and exit of the bazaar.

It also includes no registration records, either manually or using the MySejahtera app, traders and visitors not wearing face masks and no physical distancing.
