The town of Bataraza is set to reopen its Tabuan market on Saturday for agricultural product trade, after closing for two months due to quarantine controls.
Municipal administrator Bal Palasigue said Friday that minimum health protocols will be followed in the reopening of Tabuan market.
He said the management of the Bataraza Town Center (BTC) will establish an entrance and exit ways to manage the flow of market-goers. The parking areas will be designated and tables for Tabuan have been arranged for the opening on Saturday.
“As napag-usapan ng inter-agency and signed by the mayor yong order. May instruction doon na i-open na ang Tabuan, provided na ang requirements ng minimum health protocols ay ma-comply like wearing ng face mask at social distancing,” he said.
He said that unlike before when the Tabuan is open for neighboring towns such as Brooke’s Point, the local government unit (LGU) will only accept traders from Bataraza this time.
Palasigue has no idea yet on the number of vendors who will open their spaces in the Tabuan re-opening on Saturday.
The Tabuan is a market of agricultural products from the communities of Bataraza that opens every Saturday but was ordered to close during the start of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) on March 15.
Aside from Tabuan, stores inside BTC have already resumed their operations including the food court with limited capacity starting on June 1 wherein province shifted to modified general community quarantine.
