We have reached the decision that Ramadhan bazaars will not be allowed to operate starting Saturday, this is to allow bazaar and stall owners to clear up their stock. Considering that they have been operating for 25 days come Friday, so it’s not cruel for us to order them to stop their operations.

Meanwhile, Hari Raya bazaars and night markets are still allowed to operate throughout the Movement Control Order (MCO) period but they are only allowed to open until 10 pm and are subject to conditions set by the state government.

Amirudin said among the conditions set for these markets include:

  • Limiting amount of people according to the size of the premise
  • Using a numbering system to know how many people are in the premise at one time.
  • Entry ban for children under the age of 12

As for dine-ins, the Selangor CM said that it is not allowed but eateries, shops and petrol stations can now operate from 6 am to 12 am.
