Jakarta Tourism and Creative Economic (Parekraf) Agency opens opportunities for hoteliers to make controlled isolation packages for people without symptoms (OTG) in non-government facilities hotel.
" This is an alternative for the OTG who refuse to be isolated are facilitated by the government"
It aims to meet the need for self-isolation centers in Jakarta and to implement the Gubernatorial Regulation number 88/2020.
Jakarta Parekraf Agency Acting Head Gumilar Ekalaya said the package was intended for OTG who were not willing to undergo self-isolation at locations facilitated by Central Government and Jakarta Provincial Government.
"This is an alternative for the OTG who refuse to be isolated are facilitated by the government," he told, Friday (10/2).
He explained that this program was different compared with the program launched by the Ministry of Tourism, where the government did not provide subsidies, either partially or all of the costs for the isolation package.
"So it is indeed for hotels interested in selling paid isolation packages," he explained.
He continued that interested hoteliers could send a letter of application by attaching the SOP and health protocols that had been implemented to the agency.
The government team consisting of elements from Parekraf Agency, Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) and Health Agency would conduct an assessment and a field survey to determine the feasibility of the proposed hotel.
"Hotel business managers who send controlled isolation packages are capable of implementing the SOP for handling COVID-19 for OTGs set by the government," he told.

"Registration is open continuously during the pandemic or there are still cases of COVID-19. The duration of isolation is usually 14 days. It is open for any star hotel," he stated.
