More than 8,000 tourism and creative economy workers at The Nusa Dua have received the second dose of vaccination. The vaccination carried out by the Indonesia Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), through SBU of The Nusa Dua, took place on May 20-28. The vaccination recipients consisted of hotel and facility employees in The Nusa Dua area, area security and cleaning service officers, ITDC employees, beach traders association and transportation service providers.
The Badung Health Office deployed 5 teams consisting of 60 health workers, supported by BIMC Siloam Nusa Dua who provided a mini ICU and ambulance at the vaccination site. “This vaccination activity is part of the efforts to realize The Nusa Dua as a Green Zone or Covid-19-free location in an effort to restore Bali tourism,” said Managing Director of The Nusa Dua, I Gusti Ngurah Ardita, on Sunday (May 30).
The vaccination program for tourism and creative economy workers in The Nusa Dua area is organized by the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, and Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) in collaboration with the Bali Provincial Government and Badung District, ITDC, Bali Tourism Board, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali, Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort and BIMC Siloam Nusa Dua. “We have completed the second dose of vaccination program for tourism and creative economy players in The Nusa Dua area. We carried it out for 9 days and reached more than 8,000 people,” said Ardita.
To that end, his party would like to thank all parties who have supported the vaccination program. “With the completion of vaccination activities for tourism players in The Nusa Dua area, the Cleanliness, Health, Safety and Environmental Sustainability (CHSE) certification owned by The Nusa Dua area and tenants as well as the implementation of strict health protocols in the area, we are very optimistic that The Nusa Dua is ready to become a Green Zone Destination that will support Bali tourism recovery program planned by the government,” he said enthusiastically.
Ardita further stated that one of the tourism recovery programs is Work from Bali launched by the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment of the RI which invited the Civil Servants (ASN) and SOEs to make Bali a place for work activities, including focus group discussion (FGD) and outbound in order to increase visits and occupancy rates in an effort to restore Bali tourism.
“The implementation of this program has begun with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment and ITDC on May 18, 2021, and continued with a Coordination Meeting to check readiness in the field on May 28, 2021,” he said.
The Nusa Dua area was chosen to be the pilot project for the Work from Bali program because of the single management system that makes the managed area more controlled and supervised. “We hope that the start of Work from Bali at The Nusa Dua can increase the confidence of tourists to visit Bali, and carry out tourism activities in a safe and certified travel corridor, especially with the completion of the vaccination program for all tourism and creative economy players in The Nusa Dua area,” concluded Ardita.
