SHAH ALAM: All Ramadan bazaars in six of Selangor's districts under the movement control order will be closed from Saturday (May 8), says Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari.

The Selangor Mentri Besar said the decision was made following contact tracing which showed high activities involving bazaars and other gathering spots.

“We will allow bazaar operators the next two days to wrap up including selling off their stock.

“As the closure will take place five days before Hari Raya, we hope they will not be severely affected, ” he said in a special media conference on Wednesday (May 5).

The closure will involve some 11,000 operators in the state.

Amirudin added that a one-off RM500 would be given as aid to the affected traders, costing the state some RM5mil.

On Tuesday (May 4), Senior Ministry Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that the MCO will be implemented in six districts in Selangor from May 6-17.

The affected districts are Hulu Langat, Petaling, Gombak, Klang, Kuala Langat and Sepang.
