The Governor of Bali recently issued a regulation that allows for administrative sanctions against violators of health protocols. Fines of up to Rp1million may be handed out to businesses or other public facilities.
It was further noted that efforts to control and prevent the pandemic are not only tasks of the government, but those of the whole community too. The governor noted that to avoid COVID-19 transmission, tajen and traditional village activities must be stopped.
“Let us support the government’s efforts with disciples in implementing health protocols, reminding each other, taking care of ourselves and the environment so that we can finally be free from this pandemic,” said Indra.
