Multiple people in Denpasar have been fined for refusing to wear a facemask after receiving their Covid-19 vaccine.
The Head of the Denpasar Public Civil Service, Dewa Sayoga confirmed that several residents were fined for refusing to wear a facemask during an operation that was conducted in front of the Poh Gading traditional market, located on Jalan Kertanegara, Ubung Kaja Village Denpasar Monday (8/11). “All of the offenders were fined for not wearing facemasks in public areas. Some of them who have received the vaccine even admitted to intentionally refusing to wear one.” Sayoga said.
During the operation, authorities fined a total of 27 residents, including those who rode their vehicles without complying with prevention protocols. “From a total of 27 offenders, 12 of them were given warnings for not wearing facemasks properly while the other 15 were fined USD 7 (IDR 100,000),” Sayoga added.
Sayoga admitted that the compliance rate of wearing facemasks in Denpasar has recently reduced as Covid-19 transmissions have significantly dropped in the last several months. “Despite the reduction in Covid-19 transmissions, I still urge everyone to keep complying with the government’s instructions and stop using classic excuses with the authorities to try to justify violations,” Sayoga concluded.
