Authorities from the Covid-19 Handling Task Force have announced that they will penalize hotels that don’t utilize the PeduliLindungi tracing app.
The Secretary of the Buleleng Covid-19 Handling Task Force, I Gede Suyasa, confirmed that officials would penalize tourism businesses such as hotels that do not use the PeduliLindungi tracing app in their operations.
“Officials will penalize the businesses by temporarily closing down their operations or revoking their permits if necessary,” Suyasa said on Friday morning (31/12).
During an inspection on Friday, Suyasa has found out that most of the hotels located in the Buleleng region have not been utilizing the PeduliLindunig tracing app.
“When we inspected the hotels and public facilities, we didn’t see anybody who used the tracing app while checking in,” Suyasa added.
However, Suyasa still decided to use a friendly approach by giving initial warnings to the offenders. He reminded them to require the use of the tracing app from customers and staff to prevent Covid-19 transmission.
“Any person who gets a red or black alert while scanning with the PeduliLindungi app must be banned from entering the facility. We will penalize any offenders in accordance with the latest Home Affairs Minister’s Instruction about Prevention and Countermeasures of Omicron Transmission in Indonesia,” Suyasa concluded.
