“Although we haven’t received a decree from the Bali provincial government about the recent adjustment that was made by the central government, this policy is already being implemented for businesses here.” Saputra said on Wednesday (22/9). Meanwhile in a separate location, the Head of the Badung Public Civil Service, I Gusti Agung Ketut Suryanegara also stated that the government has given a leniency, especially for businesses that operate in the evening.

“Based on those instructions, businesses that typically open at 6:00pm, can now operate until midnight with strict prevention protocols in place.” Suryanegara said. He explained that restaurants and cafes are allowed to operate with only 25% of their capacity, and each table can only be occupied with a maximum of two people for 1 hour.

“Apart from that, each customer is required to scan a QR code through the PeduliLindungi tracing app before entering the restaurants or cafes to conduct a proper screening for everyone, staff included.” Suryanegara concluded.

Joint forces from Police, Military and Public Civil Service Officers have inspected cafes and night clubs in the Kuta area that have violated the curfew.
