PSBB is Extended for Two Weeks

Following the issuance of the Governor of DKI Jakarta Decree No. 19 of 2021 dated January 7, 2021 on the Entry into Force, Period and Outdoor Activities Limitation of Large-Scale Social Restrictions (“Decree 19/2021”), the Governor of DKI Jakarta issued the Decree No. 51 of 2021 dated January 22, 2021 on the Extension of Entry into Force, Period and Outdoor Activities Limitation of Large-Scale Social Restrictions (“Decree 51/2021”).

Decree 51/2021 provides that outdoor activities limitations and large-scale social restrictions policies (Pembatasan Sosial Berskala Besar – “PSBB”) will be extended for two weeks, effective as of January 26 to February 8, 2021.

Decree 51/2021 set out similar provisions contained in Decree 19/2021. The key changes in Decree 51/2021 are as follows:

  • Restaurants Activities

Restaurants and cafes may open for dine-in for only up to 25% (twenty five percent) from the full capacity. Dine-in service is permissible only until 8:00 p.m. (Jakarta time).

  • Activities at Shopping Malls

Shopping centers or malls may only operate until 8:00 p.m. (Jakarta time). The standard health protocols must be applied during the operational hours, including providing hand sanitizer and the verification of visitors’ body temperature before they enter the building.

Although the foregoing Decrees are only applicable in Jakarta, other regions will also apply similar stringent PSBB policies. The Minister of Home Affairs (“MOHA”) Instruction No. 2 of 2021 dated January 22, 2021 on the Extension of Entry into Force of Activities Limitation to Manage the Spread of Covid-19 orders Governors and Mayors/Regents of specific cities/regencies in Jawa and Bali to also apply similar stricter PSBB policies.

As of January 26, 2021, Indonesia hit 1,012,350 positive cases of Covid-19, 13,094 of which were new cases. In Jakarta alone, 2,314 of new cases were recorded as of January 26, 2021.
