The same policy still stands with the Suva City Municipal Market. More than Nausori, Suva Market’s occupancy is likely to reach its highest after the COVID restrictions were put in place in April this year

No jab no sell rules will remain even though authorities expect the number of vendors to increase at major markets when borders within Viti Levu are lifted.

And with the Government’s no stall fees initiative, vendors are likely to make their way in droves to the Suva and Nausori markets.

Nasinu and Nausori Town Council chief executive officer Anurashika Bari said the policy has not changed and anyone wishing to sell at the market facilities must be vaccinated.

Nausori and Nasinu Town Council have already carried out a survey and verified which of their permanent vendors were vaccinated.

Notices on the policy have been posted around the markets as well.

The same policy still stands with the Suva City Municipal Market. More than Nausori, Suva Market’s occupancy is likely to reach its highest after the COVID restrictions were put in place in April this year.

The market has been operating with vendor occupancy being between 55 to 65 per cent. The market has the capacity to have 600 vendors on a Saturday.

The council’s enforcement team will be making their trips to check if temporary vendors are vaccinated or not.

The team for the past months has also been ensuring that illegal sales do not happen as the city tries its best to focus on safety.
