Indonesia Central Government has decided to extend the Implementation of Level 4 Partial Lockdown (PPKM) in several areas on the islands of Java and Bali until 2 August 2021. Initially, the government implemented Emergency PPKM from 3 to 20 July, and when surge cases started—it extended with the term PPKM Level 4 on 20-25 July (one more week). 

“By considering health, economy, and social aspect, I have decided to continue implementing PPKM level 4 from 26 July to 2 August 2021,” President Jokowi said at a Sunday press conference (25/7).

Minor changes have been made to some regulations enforced during the previous Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM), such as:

  1. Supermarkets, grocery stores and modern markets that sell food and daily necessities are allowed to open as usual by implementing strict health protocols. Traditional markets are allowed to open with a maximum capacity of 50% until 15:00 local time. The provincial government will regulate further arrangements.
  2. Voucher outlets, barbershops, laundry, and car wash can open their business with strict procedures until 21.00 local time. 
  3. Food stalls, street vendors, hawker stalls and restaurants can open their business with strict protocols until 20.00 local time, and customers are allowed to dine in with a maximum of 20 minutes meal time.
  4. Public transportation, conventional and online taxis, also rentals are regulated with a maximum capacity of 50% with strict health protocols.

During two sessions of previous Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) are implemented, numbers of daily cases of the coronavirus in the country have not shown a significant decline. However, the daily recovery rate is also quite high, but the number of daily deaths is still considered high.

Latest Covid-19 statistics per Sunday (27/7), 1314 new infections in Bali, made total cases 71.103. Recent recoveries at 829, in total 58.469 with 33 recent deaths were reported, in total 2016. While in Indonesia, there were 45.203 new cases, pushing down the total infections to 3.239.936 with 86.835 total deaths and 2.596.820 recoveries.

We hope this situation will be better soon, and once the travel restriction is lifted, an update will be presented on our website right away. Currently, Indonesia shuts down all borders for all international travellers until further notice.
