“In order to handle this pandemic and the vaccination program, we have created a joint team called Covid-19 Protocols Violation Hunt Team,” said Nainggolan on Monday (1/3). 

Bali authorities realized that many people still neglect the prevention protocols currently being enforced in public places, especially the non-maskers, with some going as far as confronting officers during the operation. Based on this situation, Bali Police Department decided to take a step further to assure compliance with protocols across the island.

“Business owners who violate the protocols will also be penalized in accordance with the Quarantine Constitution,” Nainggolan added. He also said that officers would deploy at least two trucks of officers during the operation.

Officers will inspect places that might cause crowds, such as cafes and restaurants, while the Public Civil Service will do their job to close businesses from operating if they are caught violating any rules.

There is a good article the other day on the Jakarta post. Expats and locals joining in chorus to speak out on anti vaxxers and anti maskers in Bali. An reminder that no one is above the law.

Leave the "Neanderthal thinking mindset" at home and follow the guidelines of the host country. Set good examples for the local community instead of putting doubts in the locals' minds about masks and vaccines.
