Extension of Transitional Large-Scale Social Distancing until 8 November
27 October 2020

The Period of the Transitional PSBB is governed under Governor of DKI Jakarta Decree No. 1020 of 2020 on Enforcement on the Implementation on Transition Period of Large-Scale Social Distancing Toward a Healthy, Safe and Productive Society (“Governor Decree 1020/2020”). As the Indonesian government has reassessed the current Covid-19 situation as stipulated in the decree, the Transitional PSBB has now been further extended from 25 October until 8 November 2020.

 

This extension of the transitional PSBB is in accordance with Governor Decree 1020/2020, where the government has based this decision upon data collected from the Ministry of Health and other governmental institutions that within the last two weeks the average percentage of positive cases in the past week has supposedly decreased.

 

Strict enforcement is however continued to be stressed upon the maintaining and controlling of the Covid-19 situation - where citizens and any persons outside their homes are to remain disciplined in implementing the ‘3M Protocols’: (i) wearing masks; (ii) maintaining physical distancing; and (iii) washing hands frequently.

 

Given that the status of the transitional large-scale social distancing has now been further extended, more activities and business sectors are now allowed to operate with a limitation to 50% of maximum capacity. Sectors and activities include (i) offices or companies that are not engaged in essential lines of business as stipulated under Governor of DKI Jakarta Regulation No. 88 of 2020 on Amendment on Governor of DKI Jakarta Regulation No. 33 of 2020 on Implementation on Large-Scale Social Distancing in Regards to Handling Corona Virus Disease 2019 in Special Region Capital of Jakarta Province (“Governor Regulation 88/2020”) as was previously mentioned in our previous article titled ‘DKI Jakarta Returns Back to Transition Large-Scale Social Distancing’.

 

Aside from the aforementioned activities and business sectors, there are some other sectors that may operate with limitation capacity other than 50%. For example, offices and companies that are engaged in essential lines of business as stipulated under Governor Regulation 88/2020 may now operate with capacity as necessary (above 50% capacity) and cinemas are now open but with capacity limitation of 25%.
