The government has released new regulations that outline its strategy to prevent a new wave of COVID-19 cases over the holiday season, which includes a call for the public to refrain from travel during the holiday season.

Under the regulations, released on Monday by Interior Minister Tito Karnavian, the central government asked regional administrations to urge the public to limit their “non-essential” mobility and tighten border restrictions in anticipation of a influx of Indonesian migrant workers returning from abroad during the holiday period.

The regulation, which will be in effect between December 24 and January 2, 2022, also imposes the implementation of Level 3 Public Activity Restrictions (PPKM) – the second most stringent level of four-level curbs – for specific locations, such as tourist destinations, churches and shopping malls, as well as certain activities such as wedding receptions.
