Several Villages in Tabanan including Beraban Village where the Tanah Lot Temple is located have been appointed as green zone areas and will soon be included in the Covid-19 Free Corridor program.
The Regent of Tabanan District, I Komang Gede Sanjaya explained that his proposal to appoint several villages in Tabanan such as Beraban, Penebel and Candikuning Village as green zone areas was finally approved by the provincial government. “We previously proposed this idea to the governor, so the tourism sector in those three main areas in Tabanan could be revived.” Sanjaya said.
As an effort to boost the implementation of the Covid Free Corridor program in those areas, Sanjaya would be focusing on distributing the Covid-19 vaccine in those three villages. “Thankfully, the governor has approved our proposal, so we will begin the Covid-19 vaccine distribution in the near future. Probably after the Galungan Celebration next week.” Sanjaya added. He expects that the vaccine distribution in those areas could be finished within 3 to 5 days.
Sanjaya targets to distribute the Covid-19 vaccine to at least 13,000 of the residents there, so he will prepare around 27,000 doses of the vaccines to meet the requirements. Recently, Tabanan has already turned into an orange zone area from Covid, after previously being considered as a red zone due to high transmission of the virus. “We aim to turn our areas into green zones in the near future with help from our vaccination program, so we can earn the trust from both the government and the visitors when the border finally reopens.” Sanjaya concluded.
