Article 2: During the commencement of the opening of all state markets, the Governor of the Central Market Authority and all the management of the State Market shall implement the following administrative and health measures:
– To allow traders to sell goods as food, which is a daily necessity only, but food and beverage stalls in the market must not accept customers to come to eat- takeaways must be sold packaged
– Must limit the number of customers in/out of the market appropriately proportional to the size of the market location to maintain absolute personal-social safety gaps and to ensure adequate ventilation by avoiding crowd.
