Malls and restaurants in Bali can remain open until 10pm from today onwards, the provincial government has announced, as it extends the “micro” version of the Enforcement of Restrictions on Public Activities (PPKM) until at least March 22.
Previously, malls were required to close by 9pm, while dining-in at restaurants are only permitted under the same curfew. The rule, for the most part, is still applicable in other provinces implementing Micro PPKM in the latest extension of this partial lockdown, with Bali appearing to be an exception.
According to a circular issued by the Bali Provincial Government yesterday, people can dine-in at cafés and restaurants until 10pm, while take-away services are allowed to follow their normal operating hours. In addition, malls can also stay open until 10pm, just like before the pandemic.
Aside from the extended operating hours, the latest iteration of Micro PPKM in Bali appears to remain the same as before, including work from capacity and restaurant dine-in capacity still limited to 50 percent.
In addition, the circular also included an instruction for mayor and regents across the province to increase testing and tracing.
