One way is to do online check-in via a smartphone. That way you don’t need to make contact with the clerk at the check-in counter and reduce queues that may occur.
Even though you can take a vacation during the new normal by following the tips, that doesn’t mean the risk of transmission will disappear completely. We recommend postponing your vacation until the situation is more secure and under control.
2. Check the Security Status of an Area
Before deciding on a vacation, make sure you first check the condition of the tourist destination you are going to. Make sure the condition of the area you are going to is safe and protected from the Covid-19 virus.
To find out the security of an area you are going to, you can access the official website covid19.go.id and then find the area you want to visit whether the zone is green, yellow, orange, or red.
For the green zone, it indicates that the zone is relatively safe to be chosen, however, the health protocols must still be carried out.
While the yellow or orange have relatively dangerous conditions and the red ones are areas that have a very high risk.
After knowing the area you want to go to, don’t forget to check whether the tourist attraction has been opened for tourists or not.
