Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Jakarta administration has allowed non-essential businesses to implement work-from-office (WFO) rules for employees who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 and capped occupancy in offices at 25 percent.

Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has stipulated the regulation in Decree Number 1122 of 2021 regarding Level 3 community activity restrictions, which was released in Jakarta on Wednesday.

In the decree, the Jakarta Governor has also directed companies to install a PeduliLindungi barcode board at the office entrance and exit. Employees who work from the office will be required to scan their vaccination certificates on the PeduliLindungi barcode.

Till recently, non-essential businesses were not allowed to issue work-from-office guidance. Instead, they were asked to implement 100 percent work-from-home rules.

As for companies in the essential sector, the regulation remains the same. Financial and banking sectors, capital markets, and information technology players that include media and cellular operators, are allowed to operate with a maximum staff capacity of 50 percent.

Export-oriented and supporting industries can operate under stricter implementation of the health protocols, with maximum staff capacity capped at 50 percent for each shift in production facilities or factories.

Meanwhile, employee attendance has been capped at 10 percent for office administration services implementing work-from-office rules. Employees at such companies are not allowed to eat at the same time and place and are required to use the PeduliLindungi application.

As for critical sectors, the regulation allowing them to operate at 100-percent capacity remains.

A 25-percent limit has been prescribed for critical sector administrative services other than health, security and order fields bringing employees back to offices.
