Authorities from Bali’s Covid-19 Handling Task Force have planned to invite bars and nightclub owners to a meeting to discuss prevention protocol implementation during their operations.
After recently being criticized by the central government about potential prevention protocols violations at multiple Badung area businesses, the head of Bali’s Covid-19 Handling Task Force law enforcement and discipline, I Dewa Nyoman Rai Dharmadi plans to gather all bars and night clubs owners in Badung for a meeting.
“We have planned to invite the bars and cafes owners in Badung to talk about the implementation of prevention protocols at their businesses while operating during the current partial lockdown,” Dharmadi said on Monday (25/10).
However, Dharmadi claimed that the majority of businesses in Bali have been running under strict protocols despite receiving more customers recently.
“They probably thought that businesses here were violating the rules because they began to receive more clients after 1.5 years of closures. So this might seem like they were overcrowded, while they’re actually only operating with half of their maximum capacity.” Dharmadi added. Nevertheless, Dharmadi will keep on inspecting the prevention protocol implementations in all the tourism businesses to avoid Covid-19 transmission from surging.
Several hours prior, Luhut has stated that many bars and nightclubs in Bali attempted to violate the curfew and physical distancing rule during their operation. “Multiple bars even banned cellphone use inside their properties to prevent their customers from capturing the activity and posting it to social media,” Luhut said during a virtual press conference on Monday (25/10).
