The Agora Market in San Juan City will remain closed as the city government awaits the results of the swab test conducted on market vendors and workers.

The San Juan City government shut down the public market on July 1 after a male fish stall helper tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID-19).  The patient is now in isolation and receiving treatment at a hospital.  Those who had close contact with the patient have also been tested and placed on quarantine

This prompted authorities to subject 644 vendors and workers of the market to a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test at the Palacio de Maynila last week.

“We are still waiting for the results of the PCR tests of the 644 vendors, employees and staff of the market,” Mayor Francis Zamora said.

“In the meantime, for the safety of everyone, the Agora Market will remain close,” he added.

Zamora said the result of the swab test will determine when the market will resume operations.  

The market helper was found positive for COVID-19 after the local government conducted a random PCR test among “high-risk” areas in the city, including the public market.
