COVID-19 in Bali, Indonesia

Bali, as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia, is now gradually opening up and slowly starting its business again. Previously, this province was closed due to the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and resulting in an economic slowdown.

Covid 19 In Bali Indonesia

It is said that Corona disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China in December 2019.

As it is known that COVID-19 has spread to Indonesia on March 2, 2020. During the pandemic, beaches in Bali were closed to the public. The public is reminded to use masks to limit the spread of the virus.

During the pandemic, the public is always urged to implement the COVID-19 health protocol, including: using personal protective equipment in the form of masks; clean hands regularly by washing hands with soap under running water; avoid touching facial areas such as eyes, nose and mouth; keep a distance from other people; and increase endurance by implementing Clean and Healthy Living Behavior (PHBS).

After being closed for some time, the Provincial Government of Bali began implementing the new normal life protocol on July 9, 2020. The tourism industry was reopened gradually by implementing the provisions of the COVID-19 health protocol.

In the first phase on July 9, 2020, Bali was opened on a limited basis and few tourist objects were allowed to be opened to local Balinese including Kuta Beach and Jimbaran Beach. The second phase on July 31, 2020, tourism has begun to open to domestic tourists. Meanwhile, the third phase is planned to be carried out on September 11, 2020; tourism will be opened to international tourists, but still waiting for the development of the situation.

The public is encouraged to follow recommendations and support policies from the government to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which has still been occurring until now. Hopefully, this pandemic will pass quickly and the situation can recover as it should be.
