The central government has decided to cancel the partial lockdown level 3 that was supposed to be implemented during the upcoming holiday season in Bali.

Through the Coordinator of Maritime and Investment Minister, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, the central government confirmed that the plans to increase restrictions during the upcoming year-end holiday season in Bali were cancelled.

Luhut also stated that this policy would be implemented in all Indonesian provinces, including Bali, as Covid-19 transmissions were claimed to be adequately handled in the last several months.

Despite cancelling the policy, revisions were made concerning the current partial lockdown level 2 implementation in anticipation of a Covid-19 cluster among the visitors. The policy changes include:

  • Domestic tourists must be fully vaccinated to gain access to the island.
  • Show proof of negative result from a Rapid antigen test, taken 24 hours prior to departure.
  • New year’s eve celebrations are banned in all public places.
  • Shopping malls, restaurants, and other tourist spots will operate with 75% capacity.
  • Every visitor must use the PeduliLindungi tracing app upon arrival.

Luhut explained that this decision was made after considering factors that positively impacted handling the pandemic. These include the rapid Covid-19 vaccine distribution, the significant reduction of Covid-19 transmission, and the decrease in the current Bed Occupancy Ratio (BED) of hospitals.

Does this mean that the 10 day quarantine in Jakarta will be skipped? And if so, starting from which date?

Otherwise this cancellation is useless because we are not able to fly directly to Bali

So many flip flops is really showing the government's ineptness. Not much confidence can be instilled in such knee jerk decisions. Does the government really take the time to think things out before announcing their plans only to reverse them? Bottom line whatever the decisions are they aren't working.
