Jakarta (ANTARA) - Governor of  Jakarta Anies Baswedan took the decision to not allow schools in red zones in the capital to hold face-to-face classes during the micro-scale public activity restriction period extended until June 28.

The decision to ban face-to-face classes in red zones for 14 days took effect on June 15 in accordance with appendix to the Governor's Decision Number 759 of 2001.

"Learning at schools and institutes of higher learning and academies is conducted online," according to a copy of the appendix to the decision as seen in Jakarta on Thursday.

On the basis of the earlier gubernatorial decision, the local government still gave an opportunity to schools to conduct face-to-face classes in stages through limited trials.

This was stipulated in Jakarta Governor’s Decision No. 671 of 2021 on the extension of micro-scale public activity restriction in Jakarta that came into force on June 1, 2021.

Learning at schools in orange and yellow zones is adjusted to the technical procedure issued by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology.
