During the operation initiated by Jembrana police, military, and public civil service, authorities chose to inspect popular cafes and nightclubs where people usually hang out on the weekend.

As a result, they found that many people were ignoring the prevention protocols like mask-wearing and physical distancing.

Officers continued to test noncompliant visitors and staff in efforts to assure that everyone is free from COVID-19.

The Head of Operation from Jembrana Police Department, Kompol I Wayan Sinaryasa, explained that the testing was done, without cost, with the aim to prevent Jembrana from turning into a red zone area.

“We tested 6 visitors and 7 waitresses in that night club, and thankfully they showed negative results,” Sinaryasa said.

He also said that people are still negligent in carrying out physical distancing such places, as they tend to stay close to each other, increasing the risk of transmission.

Apart from the implementation of prevention protocols, authorities also enforced the 8:00 pm curfew set by the provincial government in most areas of Bali.

I don’t understand these visitors to the island not obeying rules in place Some countries they come from are in lock down I believe the penalties need to be stricter to wake them up to obey rules and keep Bali safe .
