The Provincial Government of Jakarta has taken a firm action by reimposing Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) amid rising Covid-19 cases in the capital. Through this latest implementation of another PSBB period - second of the year, the movement of Jakarta people is limited to reduce the number of transmission of the coronavirus outbreak. The emergency brake measure will last for two weeks until 11 October 2020 and still can be extended again if the condition requires. A number of activities and businesses that were relaxed during the transition period are now facing fresh restrictions, from limiting capacity to temporary closing.
The rules and mechanisms of the second PSBB are mainly based on Governor Regulation No. 88 of 2020 and several other legal sources that have been previously released by the provincial government.
As written in Governor Regulation No. 88 of 2020, there are 11 essential sectors that have received exemptions and allowed to continue operating during the PSBB:
food and beverage;
communication and information technology;
basic service, public utility, and industries determined as critical national infrastructure or other certain infrastructure.
Even with the exemptions, the owner or manager of the workplace still has the responsibility to comply with the health protocols. They also have to ensure that the number of workers or people is not more than 50 percent of the normal capacity.
Some special rules also apply in certain sectors. For restaurants or dining establishments, services may only be made for takeaway, online ordering, or delivery services. Meanwhile, hotels must provide special services for visitors who want to self-isolate.
Unlike in the first PSBB, the private and non-essential office sectors are now allowed to remain open. However, during the working or business hours, stricter rules must be applied and followed, one of which is limiting the maximum capacity to 25 percent. The same provisions also apply to central and regional government offices/agencies located in red or high-risk zones.
As an effort to control the spread of the pandemic, offices with Covid-19 positive workers or occupants must temporarily be closed for at least 3 days of operation.
Crowd prevention is one of the most effective steps to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission. Therefore, the Provincial Government of Jakarta has again reimposed a number of restrictions on a number of activities and public facilities in the capital with the following details:
Recreational places: Closed
Child-Friendly Integrated Public Places (RPTRA): Closed
Market and shopping centres: Open with 50% capacity limits and strict health protocols
Wedding: Only at the Office of Religious Affairs (KUA) or Civil Registry Office
Sports: Only at home
Schools and other education institutions: Closed
Places of worship: Open with 50% capacity limits and only for places of worship in the residential area used by local residents
Public facilities: Closed with no mass gathering of more than five people
To further reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission in cars, bikes, and public transportation, the Provincial Government of Jakarta reimplements several regulations related to the movement or mobility of people outside the home. In the second PSBB period, public transportation services will be limited, both in terms of the number of fleets and operational hours. Private vehicles are still allowed to cross the streets of the capital, but with the application of strict physical distances inside the vehicle. The other rules and measures regarding community mobility during the second PSBB period are summarized in the following list:
Odd-even policy: Not enforced
Private vehicles: Maximum of 2 occupants per row, unless from the same home
Public transportation: Passengers are limited to 50% of normal capacity
Taxi (conventional & online): Passengers are limited to 50% of normal capacity
Rental car: Passengers (including the driver) are limited to 50% of normal capacity
Entrance-Exit Permit: Not enforced
Car Free Day: Postponed/closed
As for the regulations concerning ojek and ride-hailing service during the second PSBB, it will be based on the Decree of the Head of the DKI Jakarta Transportation Agency, which is currently in the testing phase.
As mentioned above, Jakarta will limit public transportation services during the second PSBB period. Referring to the Decree of the Head of the Jakarta Transportation Service Number 156 of 2020, the following list is the modified operating hours of public transportation services in Jakarta which are divided into three periods. The first period is valid between 14-16 September 2020; the second period between 17-20 September; and the third period between September 21 onwards.

To maintain discipline and order during the implementation of the PSBB, the provincial government also regulates the mechanism of sanctions that are given to health protocol violators. This is based on Governor Regulation No. 79 of 2020. The form of sanctions can be in the form of social work to progressive fines. Repeated violations will increase the number of fines that are imposed on the violator.

In processing and tracking PSBB violations, Regional Apparatus Organization (OPD) officers are now supported with JakAPD.

In addition, JakAPD also allows the public to participate in monitoring information on violations of PSBB rules through the dashboard available at corona.jakarta.go.id.
