According to the Spokesperson of the Denpasar Task Force, I Dewa Gede Rai, by no means does vaccination exempt one from protocols.

He reminds the public that the most effective method to prevent virus transmission is by strictly following health protocols such as wearing masks, social distancing and sanitizing.

Meanwhile, active COVID-19 cases in Denpasar continue to rise.

“We need to be more alert in stopping the spread of the virus,” said Gede Rai on Tuesday (5/1).

Rai and the Task Force continue their efforts to reduce transmission in Denpasar.

They have been consistent in educating residents through loudspeakers while patrolling, disinfecting public areas and conducting road operations to verify that everyone is wearing a mask.

He also advised residents to minimize contact with family as transmission is often linked to large family gatherings.
