TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Member of Commission IX of the House of Representatives (DPR) Ratu Ngadu Bonu Wulla urged the government to tighten regulation in tourist attractions ahead of the Christmas and New Year holidays.

"Please strengthen the regulation in tourism places where crowds could potentially form," Wulla noted in a written statement on Saturday.

The House member also strongly supports the government's efforts to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 by implementing the Level 3 of Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) during the new year holidays all across Indonesia.

"We support the government's decision for implementing the level 3 of PPKM for Christmas and New Year holidays," she added.

Wulla later noted that the implementation of PPKM Level 3 across Indonesia has a noble goal to curb the spread of COVID-19 and as a precautionary measure against a spike in cases during the holidays.

The House member did not want Indonesia to face a third wave of COVID-19 as was occurring in several countries in Europe. Various nations, with high cases of COVID-19, have again imposed regional lockdowns as a precautionary measure against the virus spread.

However, Wulla reminded the government to strictly implement the regulation, with no exception, in all regions.

"We must also secure every entry and exit point in each region to ensure that the implementation of PPKM runs well during Christmas and New Year," she remarked.

The regulation of level 3 of PPKM includes the capacity limitation for shops and markets reduced to 50 percent and close at 20:00 local time.

Shopping centres, such as malls and plazas, can open with a capacity of 25 percent and close at 17:00 WIB. Street vendors, barbershops, and other similar businesses are allowed to open until 20:00 local time.

Moreover, food stalls, kiosks, and hawker stalls in open spaces may open with a capacity of 25 percent and close at 20:00 local time.

Teaching and learning activities must be 100-percent online, while places of worship are opened with 25-percent capacity and ensuring strict implementation of health protocols.
