No Lockdown in Bali. Only Denpasar is implementing restrictions on public activities (PKM), with two stages , first stages May 15th to May 30th 2020 and the second stages will be start 31 May until 15th June 2020.

As up dated by Bali Governor per June 18th 2020 on local and national media, Bali will totally open by the stages and it’s will be reviewed and may change at any time. But with certain reason because the spread of the Covid19 virus in Bali is uneven or one region is a green zone, one region is a red zone, the provincial government of Bali has chosen that regions with green zones await the other region recovery and intensive treament of covid19 in their region, so Bali will come together to open on July 9, 2020.
Why July 9th 2020, as Balinese believed in their calendar what’s the best day for some special occasion or called Wariga. So on July 9th Bali will be open for juat some activity exclude School and Tourism. It’s following the July 5th 2020 in Bali calendar, the Balinese will help a cleansing day or Banyu Pinaruh, at same moment it’s the Kasa Full Moon, so its will be one of big procession in Bali calendar, to cleansing the Bhuana Alit ( human body) and Bhuana Agung ( The Earth or Universe). Believed this is will be the good day or the moment of truth to open the island .The island will opened together in an opening procession which will be followed by their major or regional leaders on the island of Bali.
Quoted from national news media Kompas.com ; Bali Governor Wayan Koster conveyed about the planned stages of opening the tourism island of the Gods. He said this when receiving a working visit from the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Wishnutama Kusubandio, in Ubud, Gianyar, Wednesday (06/17/2020). Koster said, this stage was only limited to plans that were dependent on the situation and dynamics of the development of Covid-19 in Bali.
There are three stages that are designed related to the opening of Bali tourism.The first phase on July 9, tourism will be opened specifically for the movement of local Balinese people and certain sectors. If the situation is conducive, then it will continue for domestic domestic tourists in August.
Then for international tourists, it is planned to open from September 2020. “Once again I emphasise, this is just square off, not a definite schedule to be carried out. So whether or not this is carried out will greatly depend on the situation and dynamics of Covid-19 development in the field, especially local transmission in Bali, “said Koster, in a written statement, Wednesday (07/17/2020). Koster said, Bali applied the precautionary principle related to the opening of this tourism.
Because, at this time, Bali is focusing on handling Covid-19. Moreover, currently the trend of local transmission cases is increasing. If without caution it is feared that a second wave will occur which will be more difficult to handle. Bali Governor, Wayan Koster said, the above stages are part of the design of the protocol to face the new life order (new normal).
He considered, the development of Covid-19 in Bali in general is still dynamic. In fact, it is still quite high in some areas in Bali. For this reason, the Bali Covid-19 Task Force for the Acceleration of Handling for Action in the near future is not yet feasible and is not conducive to the implementation of health protocols in the context of the tourism sector.
