Mask up at Jonker Walk’s night market


MELAKA: Tourists visiting Jonker Walk’s night market are encouraged to don face masks starting from Friday night.

Jonker Walk management committee deputy chairman Datuk Wira Gan Tian Loo said this is in anticipation of the influx of tourists in conjunction with the Lunar New Year along with the arrival of holidaymakers from China.

“Our traders and hawkers will continue to wear face masks as part of the standard operating procedure that has been in place for the past two years.

“We will not enforce the ruling on wearing the face mask for visitors but would encourage them to do so whenever patronising the night market,” he said yesterday.

Earlier, Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali said the state government is encouraging the public to wear face masks in crowded places to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
