JOHOR BARU (May 6): Ramadan and Aidilfitri bazaars in three districts in Johor under the movement Control order (MCO) from tomorrow will continue to operate, but with strict compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOPs).

State Housing and Local Government Committee chairman Ayub Jamil said the districts affected are Johor Baru, Kota Tinggi dan Kulai, where the Ramadan bazaars will be allowed to operate from 3pm to 8pm, while for the Aidilfitri bazaars, it will be from 10am to 10pm.

“For Ramadan bazaars in districts under the conditional movement control order (CMCO), they are allowed to operate from 3pm to 8pm, and from 10am to midnight for the Aidilfitri bazaars,” he said in a statement today.

However, he said, the situation will be reviewed from time to time depending on current developments.

Yesterday, Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that the three districts in Johor will be under the MCO from tomorrow until May 20 due to a high number of active Covid-19 cases.
