On 19 August 2020 the Governor of Special Capital City of Jakarta issued Governor Regulation Number 80 of 2020 on The Implementation of Large-Scale Social Restriction During the Transition Period to a Healthy, Safe and Productive Public (Pergub 80/2020). Article 4 Pergub 80/2020 stated that the Government of DKI Jakarta is committed to prevent the increase of transmission and spread of Covid-19 in DKI Jakarta Province by implementing 3 (three) policies:

1. implementation of discipline and law enforcement of health protocols;

2. sequencing of public activities; and

3. control of modes of transportation.

In relation to the Government of DKI Jakarta efforts to enforce the law, Article 5 paragraph (1) Pergub 80/2020 allows the Government to enforce administrative sanctions in the form of temporary closure of places that do not comply with the decree stated under Article 4 paragraph (5) Pergub 80/2020.

In relation to the implementation of these administrative sanctions as stipulated under Article 5 paragraph (1) Pergub 80/2020, the regulation sets out different Agencies to specifically ensure compliance as set out in Article 5 paragraph (2) Pergub 80/2020 and are conducted by:

1. Satpol PP for government-owned offices, food stalls, eateries, cafes, restaurants, public areas and other places that may attract crowds;

2. Manpower, Transmigration and Energy Agency for privately owned offices and workplaces;

3. Tourism and Creative Economy Agency for hotels/other similar lodgings, tourist attractions and business places according to the scope of authority;

4. Industry, Trade, Cooperatives, Small-and Medium-Scale Business Agency for industrial places and business places according to the scope of authority, street vendors/stalls at fostered locations and temporary locations;

5. Education Agency for schools and other educational institutions;

6. Health Agency for health service facilities; and

7. Mayor/Regent of Administration for house of worship, and may be accompanied by elements of the Police and/or TN

Furthermore, the Government of DKI Jakarta, through Article 4 paragraph (4) Pergub 80/2020 implement the Large-Scale Social Restriction (PSBB) in stages in public places/facilities, including:

1. offices/workplaces, business places, industrial places, hotels/other similar lodgings and tourist attractions;

2. schools and other educational institutions;

4. modes of transportation;

5. food stalls, eateries, cafes and restaurants;

6. street vendors/stalls at fostered locations and temporary locations;

7. health service facilities; and

8. public areas and other places that may attract crowds.

In relation to the supervision of the volume of vehicles in DKI Jakarta, the Government of DKI Jakarta has revised the odd-even policy as stipulated in Government Regulation Number 88 of 2020 on the Amendment of Governor Regulation Number 33 of 2020 on The Implementation of Large-Scale Social to the handling of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) at Special Capital City Region of Jakarta Province (Pergub 88/2020). Under Pergub 88/2020 the Government of DKI Jakarta revoked the implementation of odd-even policy which was previously governed under Article 8 paragraph (1) point a and b Pergub 80/2020.

However, even though Government of DKI Jakarta no longer enforces the odd-even policy, other regulations continue to be enforced as follows:

1. The users of private passenger cars are required to comply with the following rules:

a) used only for the fulfillment of basic needs and/or other activities allowed during PSBB;

b) disinfect the vehicle upon usage;

c) wear a mask on the vehicle;

d) do not travel if experiencing above normal body temperature or sickness;

e) limit the capacity of the passenger car to a maximum of 2 (two) people per seat row, except the passenger with the same household.

 

2. The users of private motorized vehicles are required to comply with the following rules:

a) used only for the fulfillment of basic needs and/or other activities allowed during PSBB;

b) disinfect the vehicle and accessories after use;

c) wear a mask in the vehicle; and d) do not travel if experiencing above normal body temperature or sickness.

 

In conclusion, even though the Government of DKI Jakarta no longer imposes the odd-even policy, it is expected that provision of Article 18 paragraph (4) and (5) Pergub 88/2020 are able to contribute to the prevention of an increase of in transmission and spread of Covid-19 in DKI Jakarta Province.
