TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The National Civil Service Agency (BKN) secretary Supranawa Yusuf said on Monday, April 27, 2020, that he had ordered staffing officers in state institutions to keep-track of state civil apparatuses (ASN) throughout the government ban on homecoming, or the 'mudik ban'.
"Each and every staffing officers are required to register the location of ASN and require them to report-in each morning, afternoon, evening, or share their location or via text message if there are no internet coverages," said Supranawa on Monday, April 27, 2020.
He explained that the registering process can be used by staffing officers to determine the punishments that would be handed to violating ASNs. Supranawa asserted that state apparatuses must adhere to existing protocols in stopping the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The BKN secretary said that it is not a matter of distance traveled by the people, but is mainly the commitment to staying at home to break the chain of the coronavirus transmission.
The current COVID-19 prevention protocol, including the 'mudik ban', suggests that traveling permits are only granted to ASN who have obtained permits from their superiors. However, such permits are only granted to those who are in an urgent matter such as those who seek treatment, women going into labor, or for ASNs who intend to visit relatives who are deeply ill or have passed away.
