“All our activities such as in-person learning at schools and the upcoming international events scheduled in Bali won’t be affected by this Omicron variant as long as all the prevention protocols are properly implemented,” Koster said on Monday (3/1).

He also assures the public that all the people who had contact with the domestic tourists who contracted Omicron during their stay in Bali had already tested negative from Covid-19.

Meanwhile, the Head of the Bali Education, Youth, and Sports Agency, I Ketut Ngurah Boy Jayawibawa, confirmed that face-to-face classes have already started with 100 percent capacity. All high schools and special schools across the island can meet for 6 hours every day, under the supervision of the Bali Health Agency.

The Head of the Bali Health Agency, Dr. I Ketut Suarjaya, stated that the in-person learning was initiated following the latest Decision Letter signed by the Health Minister, the Home Affairs Minister, the Religion Minister, and the Educational Minister.

He also explained that authorities would stop the program once a Covid-19 transmission occurs due to face-to-face classes. “Should transmission happen, we’ll immediately close down affected schools and facilities to avoid further risk,” Dr. Suarjaya concluded.

Any government that thinks they can keep people from getting a cold which is what covid has turned into 100% of the time will be disappointed. Living life without close human interaction and not being able to look at people's faces is no way to live.
