Jurong Fishery Port will resume wholesale market operations on Monday (Aug. 2).

According to the Singapore Food Agency (SFA), the port reopened on Aug. 1, and tenants began making arrangements to resume operations.

The SFA said that the entire port site has been given two rounds of deep cleaning prior to the reopening, and that the tenants of the market have been briefed on the port's enhanced safe management measures (SMMs).

The organisation also added that while tenants and trade visitors may need time to adapt and adjust to the enhanced SMMs, and that initial issues and delays are to be expected, they will work with the various stakeholders to review and fine-tune processes when necessary.
