Siem Reap enforces Covid measures at markets

The Siem Reap Provincial Administration has laid out five-point measures on public order and operations of both state and private markets to prevent community transmission of Covid-19.

In a directive dated August 12, provincial governor Tea Seiha said the measures are put in place because the province is still recording a high number of transmission cases.

The provincial hall instructed all district administrations to closely monitor all markets to maintain order and clean environment.

District authoritities have to enforce preventive measures at the entrance-exit of each market such as taking temperature, maintaining distancing, and requiring people to wash hands with sanitiser and scanning the "Stop Covid" QR code before entering. They also have to ensure that each market is well-ventilated.

“Only vendors who have been vaccinated and tested for Covid-19 could sell in the market or area in its vicinity by showing vaccination cards to relevant authorities,” the directive said.

The district authorities can also impose fines on those who violate health measures.

Vendors and individuals who disobey the measures would be barred from selling or entering the market and are subject to fines and other penalties as stated in the Covid-19 law.
