Dozens of domestic visitors have been caught for being unvaccinated while entering Bali through Gilimanuk Port in Jembrana.
The Head of the Jembrana Health Agency, I Gusti Bagus Ketut Oka Parwata, confirmed that since the implementation of the Candle Operation to secure the border from potential Covid-19 transmission and criminal activity at Gilimanuk Port, dozens of unvaccinated domestic tourists have been reprimanded.
He also explained that the vaccination site will be operating until December 31st 2021. It is open to anyone who hasn’t been fully vaccinated.
Nonetheless, he still hopes that visitors will have their Covid-19 shots before traveling, to avoid creating crowds at the document screening area of Gilimanuk Port.
Meanwhile, the Head of the Jembrana Police Department, AKBP I Dewa Gede Juliana, admitted that the Candle Operation has been effective in distributing the Covid-19 vaccine. Since the operation began at the start of the holiday season, an average of 80 people have been vaccinated per day.
“During the Candle Operation, an average of 80 people from outside Bali have received the vaccine daily,” AKBP Juliana said. He also reminds all travelers to comply with prevention protocols and complete all the travel requirements. This includes the Covid-19 vaccine certificate and a negative Covid-19 test result. These are required to gain access to the island.
