The government cut the collective leave by three days at the end of this year. Dec. 28-30, 2020, is no longer a substitute for the Idul Fitri 2020 holidays.
In response to the continuously increasing COVID-19 cases in the country, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has instructed regional leaders to step up their efforts to curb the spread of the disease.
The COVID-19 pandemic is still not under control both globally and nationally in Indonesia. Of course, it is not easy to predict how this health crisis will develop in 2021.
Jakarta has extended the imposition of transitional large-scale social restrictions again. However, this effort will not be successful if its implementation is marred by various violations.
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo is seeking a reduction in year-end collective leave days. Enforcement of health protocols throughout all stages of the 2020 regional elections must be ensured.
People should not reduce their alertness in facing the COVID-19 pandemic because the pandemic is not shown any sign of abating.
Regional heads who do not enforce health protocols may face dismissal. This needs support from other stakeholders for enforcement.
Regional leaders, as the heads of the COVID-19 handling task forces in their respective regions, have been warned again.
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has ordered law enforcement authorities to take strict action against anyone violating health protocol.
Every person must respect the rights of others to ensure social harmony, public order, and national order.
