The Section 6 Modern Market in Shah Alam has been ordered to close for four days starting today after Covid-19 cases were detected among its traders.
Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) spokesman Shahrin Ahmad said this was to contain Covid-19 transmission at the market and to make way for contact tracing.
“Traders, renters and workers at the market are advised to undergo Covid-19 screening as soon as possible and submit their results to MBSA before they can be allowed to resume operation,” he said when contacted by Bernama.
He said MBSA suggested that they conduct the screening at the state’s free Covid-19 screening programme or at any private clinic or medical centre that provides the service.
A Bernama check at the market found that its main entrance was closed and its parking area empty.
