The Department of Transportation (Dishub) of Denpasar City asked the public not to go home to native cities and villages for the Idul Fitri holiday to follow the ban from the government.
There are still positive cases of Covid-19 and even new variants have been found in Denpasar City. However, many are trying to break the rules.
This prompted the Transportation Agency to tighten the flow of backflow, which is predicted to occur from 18-24 May 2021. The Head of the Denpasar City Transportation Office, I Ketut Sriawan, when contacted on Sunday (9/5) said that someone had indeed returned home before the mudik ban took effect. So the current condition of travelers is not significant.
“We will continue to monitor those who disobey, in accordance with the ban on going home from the center from 6 to 17 May 2021. We will strictly enforce it, especially in terms of health protocols. They are required to make a rapid antigen test. Do not let one or two people who carry the virus affect others, “he explained.
Sriawan also appealed to travelers who had already returned home not to other family members.
The Department of Transportation collaborates with the Covid-19 village / sub-district task force to monitor backflow. When the flow returns, if there are travelers who return to Denpasar, they are required to report themselves and carry out quarantine.
So, the spread of Covid-19 can be handled before it develops symptoms. They are also required to provide information of a rapid antigen test or swab test as a condition that they are safe from Covid-19.
