Shoppers wash their hands at Koki Market

Moresby South MP Justin Tkatchenko was responsible for both its closure and reopening. For admission to the facility, certain conditions apply.
 
In a Facebook posting Tkatchenko said that there were simple rules to be followed:
 
• Market-goers' temperatures would be taken and anyone registering 38C and above would be refused entry and advised to go to their closest clinic.
 
• All visitors and vendors would have to wash their hands before entering the market.
 
• Shoppers should simply buy what they want and then go home as the market is not a place to socialise.
 
• No betelnut-buai is allowed to be chewed or sold at the market.
 
• No unaccompanied children or animals are allowed in the market.
 
• All vendors must keep 2m apart from one another and shoppers must practise social distancing.
