Although the Central Government has issued a ban on homecoming that will take effect on May 6-17, tour activities are still allowed. However, it is still within the framework of the Enforcement of the Restriction of Community Activities (PPKM) on a micro scale or traveling in a domicile area while still applying the health protocol discipline. “For that reason, we at Tanah Lot tourist attraction are preparing to welcome visitors during the Eid Al-Fitr holiday this year,” said Operations Manager, I Wayan Sudiana, on Wednesday (May 5)
The tourist attraction located at Beraban village, Kediri, Tabanan, has indeed prepared itself for the holidays in addition to completing strategic points with various facilities, such as hand washing stations, hand sanitizers and routine spraying of areas with disinfectants. “We have obtained a certificate of Cleanliness, Health, Safety, and Environment Sustainability (CHSE) from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, and have participated in the vaccination process for tourism workers and stakeholders in the Tanah Lot area,” he added.
He stated that the vaccination is the support of the management for government programs, so that it can reduce the transmission of Covid-19. With the support of the local government, his party is very enthusiastic about participating in the vaccination program in accordance with established procedures. “This is also an anticipatory effort to increase immunity if there is a possibility of a surge in tourists on the Eid Al-Fitr holidays later,” he said.
Sudiana said that employees are an important element to get vaccination because there will be many different visitors, especially during the Eid al-Fitr holidays. “Tanah Lot is one of the destinations where the incoming and outgoing access of people is quite high, so health protocols are very important, including Covid-19 vaccination. Moreover, the Eid al-Fitr holidays are already around the corner,” he continued.
In addition, as a precautionary measure, his party continuously implements strict procedures (wearing masks, washing hands, maintaining distance) in tourist areas. By that way, tourists will remain safe, comfortable and have their health guaranteed during their travel. “Even though we have been vaccinated, the health protocols are still being implemented right from the entry, ticket gate to ticket checking gate and while in the area,” he said while ending the conversation.
