  • TEMPO.CO, JakartaSouth Jakarta Administration temporarily closes Pondok Labu Traditional Market starting today, June 27, until Tuesday, June 30, for disinfection after one of the traders tested positive for Covid-19 based on mass testing from Cilandak Community Health Center (Puskesmas). 

    “[The market is] closed starting today until the next three days and it will be opened on July 1st,” said Cilandak Subdistrict head, Mundari, on Saturday, June 27. 

    He said that his side is still tracking the seller who contracted the virus as the person himself has yet to know his condition. “We’ve tried to contact him but the phone was out of reach. Hopefully, he’ll know the information today.”

    Since the PSBB transitional, the city government has applied “the active case finding” at public facilities such as the market.

    The Jakarta administration has set regulations to temporarily stop market activities for 3 days for disinfection if one of the traders is found to be infected with Covid-19.
