TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Covid-19 Handling Task Force has issued a new health protocol policy in the form of a travel bubble mechanism in Bali on Wednesday as a follow up on the dynamics of the Covid-19 transmission. This policy is applied to people who arrived from traveling overseas in the past 14 days, both Indonesian citizens and foreign nationals.  

"Iit is necessary to stipulate a Circular Letter on Health Protocols for the Bubble System Mechanism in Bali during the Covid-19 Pandemic," the Head of the Covid-19 Handling Task Force, Lt. Gen. Suharyanto wrote on February 23. 

The bubble system is a corridor-based travel system meant to separate people into groups that are based on contact tracing history and travel history and the general public. This essentially organizes people’s activities and limits it to certain locations, hotels, ships, or other facilities accommodating quarantine measures. 

“People’s interactions are limited to their own travel bubble group and quarantine to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19,” he added. 

He said this bubble mechanism is an attempt to better monitor and control the spread of Covid-19
