Denpasar officials have prepared to utilize the PeduliLindungi tracing app at the Badung traditional fresh markets in the near future.
Denpasar Mayor, IGN Jaya Negara confirmed that the city government has been preparing to implement a new operating procedure at traditional fresh markets in his area by utilizing the PeduliLindungi tracing app. “Badung fresh market is one of the traditional markets in Indonesia that will utilize the PeduliLindungi tracing app as the pilot project.” Jaya Negara said during an inspection on Saturday afternoon (25/9).
During his inspection, Jaya Negara was also accompanied by the Minister of Trade, M.

Each Badung market visitor will be required to show proof of their Covid-19 vaccine certificate by scanning the QR code with the PeduliLindungi app on their cellphone in order to gain access into the market once the policy is fully implemented.“This implementation was initiated to ensure the safety of both vendors and visitors of the market as we have to start adapting to live with Covid-19 in the future.” Jaya Negara added.
