Meanwhile, along with changes in government policy in the Implementation of Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM), which was originally an Emergency PPKM but has now become a Level 3 PPKM, the rules regarding the opening hours of traders in the culinary sector have changed. The change was originally only allowed to open until 8 pm, now allowed to open until 9 pm. This was stated by Ketut Suwarmawan as the Coordinator for the Data and Information Division of the Covid-19 Handling Task Force (Satgas) of Buleleng Regency through a press release on Wednesday (21/7).

Furthermore, Suwarmawan explained that the changes to the rules were contained in the Circular Letter (SE) of the Governor of Bali No. 11/2021 Regarding the Implementation of PPKM Level 3. The Culinary Sector is allowed to open until 21.00 WITA. However, the stipulation is that culinary sector business actors are only allowed to serve orders to take home.

"For now, the dine-in service cannot be carried out, but take away or take away services can be provided to buyers," added Suwarmawan.

Suwarmawan hopes that the public will understand and comply with the rules related to PPKM Level 3 because this rule was made to protect the public by suppressing the surge in Covid-19 cases due to mobility and crowds.
