Bali is preparing for a wave of domestic tourist that could visit the island this weekend because of the national holiday long weekend from Oct 28th until Nov 1st.

Bali Regional Secretary, Dewa Made Indra said that a wave of domestic tourists this week will potentially increase the transmission of COVID-19.

To prevent new clusters in tourist attractions, he suggested that every district’s government and the management team at the tourist attractions need to increase their awareness and implement strict health protocols such as wearing facemask, washing hands regularly and physical distancing.
