Jakarta (ANTARA) - The government has again raised the public activities restrictions (PPKM) status in Jakarta to Level 2, which will remain in effect from Tuesday (November 30, 2021) till Monday (December 13, 2021).

The decision of raising the PPKM status in the capital city has been stipulated in the Instruction of the Home Affairs Minister (Inmendagri) No. 63 of 2021 concerning Level 3, 2, and 1 of PPKM.

The Level 2 PPKM policy is part of a gradual effort ahead of the Level 3 PPKM implementation that will be imposed throughout Indonesia as part of anticipatory measures during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Level 3 PPKM will be reimposed from December 24, 2021, to January 2, 2022.

The newly-issued Inmendagri replaces the previous Minister of Home Affairs' Instruction (No. 60 of 2021) dated November 29, 2021.

With the increase in the PPKM level, several additional restrictions will apply to some sectors regarding capacity. For instance, in the non-essential sector, the capacity in offices has been reduced from 75 percent to 50 percent.

Physical attendance in the essential sector, which includes the financial sector and banks, has been reduced from 100 percent to a maximum of 75 percent. The 75 percent capacity is also applied to supermarkets, traditional markets, hypermarkets, and grocery stores.

People's markets selling non-essential commodities have been allowed to operate with a maximum capacity of 75 percent.

Food stalls, small restaurants, street vendors, businesses that operate on streets have been permitted to remain open until 9 p.m. and their capacity has been capped at 50 percent.

Restaurants and cafes, indoors or outdoors, and malls have been allowed to stay open until 9 p.m. at the latest with 50-percent capacity.
