State Civil Servants Prohibited from Traveling Out of Town during Religious Holidays

State civil servants are restricted from traveling out of town following the government’s decision to extend micro-scale public activity restrictions (PPKM Mikro) for another two weeks starting March 9 to March 22.

Coordinating Economic Affairs Minister Airlangga Hartarto said on Monday that during that period state civil servants, members of the military and police, as well as state-owned enterprises and region-owned enterprises employees are prohibited from traveling out of town due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The policy of restricting state civil servants, members of the military and police, as well as state-owned enterprises and region-owned enterprises employees from traveling out of town is related to the upcoming celebration of Isra' Mi'raj and Nyepi (Day of Silence) from March 10-14,” Airlangga told a virtual press conference on March 8.

The government has added three provinces in the implementation of “PPKM Mikro” namely North Sumatra, East Kalimantan, and South Sulawesi as the Covid-19 confirmed cases surged.

Previously, the “PPKM Mikro” was only applied to all cities in Java and Bali provinces.
