JAKARTA - As many as 18 nightspots and culinary tours were closed by the Task Force for the Acceleration of Handling COVID-19 in Bekasi Regency, West Java. The closure is related to the imposition of restrictions on community activities (PPKM) during the pandemic.
"The closure last night was carried out on locations that violated the provisions of the health protocol. Spread in a number of areas, from Kalimalang-Tambun, Cibitung, West Cikarang, to South Cikarang," said Bekasi Regent Eka Supria Atmaja in Cikarang, Thursday, January 14. Among.
Some of the 18 places, he said, are mostly closed temporarily, but some are permanently closed, such as the Lute Cafe located on Jalan Inspeksi Kalimalang, Tambun Selatan District.
His party did not allow the Lute Cafe to operate again because the location area did not have good air circulation, making it vulnerable to the spread of COVID-19.
"We prioritize the safety of our citizens in relation to handling COVID-19. If someone violates again, we make sure to close it," he said.
Kapolres Metro Bekasi Kombes Hendra Gunawan said the police together with the TNI are helping local governments' efforts to enforce health protocol rules.
He admitted that he continues to monitor other locations that have the potential to attract crowds so that they have the potential to increase the spread of the Corona virus.
Hendra also asked all sector police to anticipate earlier regarding potential crowds. "We are closely monitoring it for prevention. We don't want a crowd before we disperse," he said.
The operation to close the entertainment venue last night was directly led by the Bekasi Regent, the Bekasi Metro Police Chief, and the Dandim 0509 / Bekasi.
A number of discotheques and culinary tours are targeted starting from the Jalan Inspeksi Kalimalang Tambun Selatan area, the Cikarang Square shophouse area, to the Lippo Cikarang area.
