West Jakarta Transportation Sub-agency Head Erwansyah expressed, until this noon, there were no buses or travel services that transported the travelers from the two posts location.
"This post is about to monitor buses and travels that carry travelers. We will check the documents in accordance with the requirements for homecoming, including the Covid-19 test certificate," he said, Thursday (5/6).
He explained if they did not show the required papers or documents, they could not continue the trip.
"We are on standby for 24 hours. Every day there are six officers in the field," he uttered.

"So let's protect ourselves from the threat of COVID-19. Thus far there have been no offenders, as we are sure the residents understand," he stated.
