Tagum City Mayor Allan Rellon has ordered a temporary closure of the Tagum City Public Market for one week after one of the stall owners was tested positive for coronavirus disease.
During the closure from Tuesday, September 8, until September 14, the public market will undergo decontamination, the local chief executive said.
He said there is a need to decontaminate the market for the safety of the people and to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Rellon urged the marketgoers who visited the place from August 20 to September 6 to undergo self-quarantine or to inform the authorities, particularly if they are experiencing any of the Covid-19 symptoms, such as cough and colds, fever or diarrhea.
The operation of the public market will resume on September 15.
