Vaccinated children allowed to enter shopping centres in Jakarta

JAKARTA (XINHUA) – The Indonesian government has allowed vaccinated children aged six to 12 to enter shopping centres and recreational places in the region of capital Jakarta
since Tuesday.

However, children are required to show proof that they have received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose, and they must be accompanied by parents.

With Covid-19 restrictions still in place in Jakarta, malls, playgrounds for kids and recreational areas are now allowed to operate at 50 per cent capacity to try to keep the economy moving amid the current surge in Covid-19 cases due to the Omicron variant.

With a four-tier Covid-19 restriction policy in place in the Southeast Asian country, the government is currently imposing the level-3 curbs in Greater Jakarta.

The peak of the third wave of Covid-19 is starting to pass in Jakarta, with the numbers of daily cases, active cases and hospitalisations beginning to fall, according to Coordinating Minister for Maritime and Investment Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan.
