Micro PPKM is Extended for Two Weeks

Following the issuance of the Governor of DKI Jakarta Decree No. 107 of 2021 dated February 8, 2021 (“Decree 107/2021”) on the Entry into Force of Micro-Scale Public Activities (Pemberlakuan Pembatasan Kegiatan Masyarakat Berbasis Mikro or the Micro PPKM”), the Governor of DKI Jakarta issued Decree No. 213 of 2021 dated March 8, 2021 (“Decree 213/2021”) on the Extension of the Entry into Force of Micro-Scale Public Activities.

Decree 213/2021 provides that the Micro PPKM is extended for two weeks, effective from March 9, 2021 until March 22, 2021.

Decree 213/2021 contains similar provisions to Decree 107/2021, with the only notable change being that the activities in public areas and other places may operate at 50% (fifty percent) of the full capacity. However, activities in these places that may attract masses will be stopped.

While the foregoing decree is only applicable in Jakarta, other regions will also apply similar Micro PPKM policies. On March 4, 2021, the Minister of Home Affairs issued his Instruction No. 5 of 2021 on the Extension of the Entry into Force of the Micro PPKM and the Establishment of Posts for Covid-19 Management in Villages and Urban Villages to Manage the Spread of Covid-19 (the “Instruction”). The Instruction orders Governors and Mayors/Regents of specific cities/regencies in Java, Bali, East Kalimantan, South Sulawesi, and North Sumatera to also apply similar Micro PPKM policies. To determine which areas shall apply the Micro PPKM policies, the following factors set forth in the Instruction must be considered: above average death rate, below average recovery rate, above average active case rate, and Bed Occupancy Ratio for the Intensive Care Unit and Isolation Unit of above 70%.
