The Central Market reopened at 8am on June 1 and will work until 6pm. The vehicles’ access to the market is allowed between 6pm and 8am.
Some 70% of the traders resumed work and the main rules are maintaining of physical distance between trading places (at least 2 meters) and between visitors, buyers and business entities (at least 1 meter), the market’s acting director Ion Pîntea has told IPN.
The stalls were relocated and the positioning of trading places is strictly monitored. “Before the pandemic, there were by two-three sellers at a table. Now there is only one seller at a table so that the distance of 2 meters is respected,” said the acting director of the market.
Ion Pîntea noted that each trader has a sanitizing solution at the selling place and the buyers can use it at request. The traders have masks and also gloves, if necessary.
“The trading places and areas within the market were sanitized. Also, during the day, after every three hours, the sellers are obliged to clean the working surfaces with alcohol-based disinfectant,” stated Ion Pîntea.
He also said that everyone obeys the imposed rules as the people realize the risks during the pandemic. The local radio station is used to inform the people about the main requirements that must be met.
For now, the flow of buyers is not so large. Supervising inspectors will direct the flow of visitors so as to prevent crowdedness.
The traders who will not obey the imposed rules will be unable to work.
