COVID-19 Task Force Explains Two Policies to Prepare for Eid Al-Fitr 2022 – This year, the government is allowing people to go home and take the 2022 Eid holiday. Therefore, the Covid-19 Task Force says that policy adaptation is necessary to ensure that going home is carried out in a healthy and safe manner.

Government Spokesperson for Handling COVID-19 Prof. Wiku Adisasmito explained that this adjustment through the COVID-19 Handling Task Force issued an Addendum SE Task Force No. 16 concerning provisions for domestic travelers (PPDN), and the Addendum of SE Task Force No. 17 concerning Provisions for Overseas Travelers (PPLN), which has been effective since April 19, 2022.

“The two policies regulate several additional arrangements in order to welcome a healthy and safe homecoming period,” Wiku said as quoted from the official website of the COVID-19 Task Force.

For arrangements for PPLN, there is an additional state entrance, namely the Tarempa Sea Port in the Anambas Islands, Riau Islands Province. The addition of testing options using Antigen 1×24 hours before the special departure of PPLN who comes from Singapore, has stayed in Singapore for at least 14 days, and has received the second or third dose of vaccine to Indonesia through the entrance to the Riau Archipelago.

Meanwhile, in the testing arrangements for PPDN aged 6-17 years who have been vaccinated with the second dose as evidenced by the possession of a vaccine certificate. That is, they are not required to show negative results for COVID-19, and vice versa if they have not been vaccinated with the full dose, they are required to show 3X24 hour PCR results.

In addition, the Ministry of Home Affairs has released an Instruction for the extension of PPKM Leveling in Java and Bali until May 9, 2022. From the latest instructions, it can be seen that from week to week there have been improvements at the district/city level.

“Thank you for the hard work of the community together with the local government in controlling COVID-19,” added Wiku.

However, there are still 2 regencies/cities in the Java-Bali region that are still level 3, namely Serang City and Pamekasan Regency. These areas need to work harder to improve the quality of handling COVID-19.

“Hopefully we can continue to consistently carry out control until finally the condition of the COVID-19 case in Indonesia is completely under control,” hoped Wiku.
