Jakarta has entered a transitional large-scale social restriction (PSBB) period in handling Covid-19 since June 5, 2020. A number of PSBB provisions which were originally strict but began to slowly relax during the transition period. The condition is that the health protocol must be implemented in a disciplined manner. The DKI Jakarta Provincial Government has implemented a transitional PSBB because most areas in Jakarta are already in green and yellow zone status.
