Ramadan Bazaars Allowed to Operate Under SOP Compliance

Teluk Intan Municipal Council (MPTI) is allowing controlled opening of Ramadan bazaars in administered areas under the council, based on ongoing economic activity SOPs.

Some of the bazaars are the ones located at Jalan Mahkota in Teluk Intan town centre, involving 124 stall plots; Taman Mesra in Simpang Empat, Hutan Melintang, involving 58; and Rabu town site in Langkap, involving 128.

The president of MPTI, Ismail Ibrahim said that the opening of Ramadan bazaars is in line with the list of allowed activities under SOPs of the ongoing Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) as announced by the National Security Council (MKN).

He added that through the order, chains of economic and industry-related activities are allowed to operate, such as morning markets, night markets and farmers’ markets.

“However, this action is subject to time-to-time orders by MKN.

“Should the current order disallow Ramadan bazaar operation, MPTI will execute the online business concept, opening of existing stalls or hawker stalls, as what was done last year,” he said in a statement dated today (March 5).

Following night market SOPs, customers must register and perform temperature screening before entry, while stalls are to be placed at least three metres apart and only take-away orders are allowed.

Visitors are limited to a one-way movement flow and only two individuals from the same household are allowed to purchase food.

Visitors are also limited to only 20 minutes while at a Ramadan bazaar zone.
