This marks the third phase of the temporary closure in Badung alone, which was first formally announced on March 21. 

“If we are talking about until when [the closure would last], we will certainly be looking at the development of COVID-19 cases, until the situation and condition permits it, or as we wait further announcements,” I Made Badra, who heads the Badung Tourism Agency, told Tribun.

The temporary closures include various public and commercial sites in Badung, including destinations such as Sangeh Monkey Forest and Pandawa Beach, and popular venues like Finns Beach Club and Mrs Sippy, which have been “closed until further notice” for weeks. 

For the most part, popular destinations from Uluwatu to Seminyak and Canggu are affected by the official announcement. 

At the time of writing, other regions in Bali have yet to announce similar extensions of closures, though they can be expected to follow in the coming days.
