La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said the vegetable trading post will be temporarily closed for disinfection starting March 25.
The Benguet politiko said the closure is upon the advice of Governor Melchor Diclas as precaution against the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Salda said some traders will be transferred to the Benguet Agri Pinoy Trading Center (BAPTC).
Other traders, meanwhile, will be relocated to the bagsakan area.
“We will try our best to mobilize our personnel to implement the dis-infection for one day so that we will lessen the impact of the partial closure of the facility to the farmers and the traders,” he said.
