The provincial government has decided to extend the partial lockdown in Bali and Java until at least the 22nd of this month. This policy is aligned with orders from the Ministry of Home Affairs to restrict community activities in order to reduce COVID-19 transmission in the region.

The Head of Bali COVID-19 Handling Task Force, I Made Rentin, said that the focal point of the partial lockdown includes five areas within Bali: Denpasar, Badung, Gianyar, Tabanan, and Klungkung.

Regarding other districts of the island, the governor instructed village authorities to impose the lockdown based on zoning areas. “The restrictions will be implemented in villages that are classified as orange and red zones,” Made Rentin said on Monday (8/2).

The policies on the extension are very much the same, except for the curfew limiting businesses still in operation to close shop at 8:00 pm. Governor Koster has revised the curfew to 9:00 pm, under stringent supervision, as opposed to the previous 8:00 pm.

Meanwhile, Governor Koster set new entry requirements for domestic tourists visiting the island during the partial lockdown. “For people who plan to visit the island through air transportation service, they will be required to show a negative PCR test result taken as early as two days before departure or a rapid antigen test as early as one day before their departure,” Koster said.

Entry requirements have also been revised for visitors planning to gain access to the island through land and water transportation services, in which case they are required to show a negative rapid antigen or PCR test result taken as early as three days before departure.

Additionally, all visitors are required to fill out the e-HAC form to help Bali authorities track and trace potential transmission. Children 12 years and under are exempt from testing.

Let's focus on reducing the pandemic so that it is immediately recoveried clear, and let's leave for a moment the discussion on reopening tourism even with strict protocols, remember that it doesn't mean forgetting related things, and also don't be bothered with the term on free covid's coridor based tourism which is misleading.

Be aware it says children below 12 years need no testing. That applies to enter Bali but may be different than from where you check in on a flight.

I had to rapid test my two children below 12 years old before check in on a flight from Balikpapan to Bali.
