DKI Jakarta Extends the Transitional PSBB

The Governor of DKI Jakarta decided to again extend the transitional Large-Scale Social Restrictions Activities (Pembatasan Sosial Berskala Besar or “PSBB”) for 14 (fourteen) days, effective as of November 23, 2020 to December 6, 2020. This extension policy is based on the Governor of DKI Jakarta Decree No. 1100 of 2020 dated November 6, 2020 on the Entry Into Force of the Extension of the Large-Scale Social Restrictions Activities at Transition Period Towards A Healthy, Safe, and Productive Community.

During this transitional PSBB, the Governor of DKI Jakarta reminded Jakarta residents to always comply with the health protocols and report to the relevant agency if they found any violations to the health protocols. He also added that for the last 14 (fourteen) days, Jakarta recorded a substantial increase of the COVID-19 cases, from 8,026 cases on November 7 to 8,444 cases on November 21. Given so, the Governor of DKI Jakarta states that he may implement a stricter PSBB policy if the number of the COVID-19 cases continues to grow significantly.

Under the Governor of DKI Jakarta Regulation No. 79 of 2020 dated August 19, 2020 on the Implementation of Discipline and Law Enforcement of Health Protocols as an Effort to Prevent and Control Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), as amended by the Governor of DKI Jakarta Regulation No. 101 of 2020 dated October 9, 2020 (collectively, “Regulation 79/2020”), any violations of the capacity limitation on workplaces, restaurants, and public transportation would be subject to administrative sanctions. The sanctions are as follows:

  1. One time violation may be subject to a fine of Rp50,000,000 (fifty million Rupiah);
  2. Two-time violation may be subject to a fine of Rp100,000,000 (one hundred million Rupiah); and
  3. Three-time violation may be subject to a fine of Ro150,000,000 (one hundred and fifty million Rupiah).
