The Kidapawan City government has extended the operating hours of Mega Market so that workers could still have time to buy their needs amid the general community quarantine being implemented to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the city.
“Para mabigyang pagkakataon na makapamelengke at makabili ng pangunahing pangangailangan yaong mga nagta-trabaho hanggang alas singko ng hapon, bukas na mula alas sais ng umaga hanggang alas sais ng gabi ang Mega Market simula May 6, 2020,” the local government said.
The public market is open from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. from Monday to Friday and until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The city government reminded the residents that they still have to follow the schedule written in their color-coded Kidapawan Quarantine Identification Pass whenever they enter the Mega Market.
“Sa mga taga ibang lugar naman na pinayagang makapasok sa lungsod, dapat ipakita ang Quarantine Pass mula sa kanilang mga munisipyo kung bibili sa Mega Market,” it said.
“No Face Mask No Entry Policy” and social distancing will continue to be enforced and those going inside the Mega Market have to undergo the thermal scanning and disinfection, it added.
