JAKARTA, KOMPAS.TV – Coordinator for the Implementation of the Java-Bali Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan appealed for offices to re-implement work from home (WFH).
This is in the context of self-awareness of the increase in the Omicron Covid-19 variant in the country.
“If there is an option that WFH is still able to reach the level of productivity, we will leave it to the leadership to conduct the assessment itself. I urge that option can be taken,” said Luhut in a virtual press statement, Sunday (16/1/2022).
Although not mandatory, Luhut believes this policy can reduce the rate of spread of Covid-19 cases in the country.
The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment asked that most activities in offices be carried out with a capacity of only 75 percent.
“We urge that 100 percent is not required at the office, it is not necessary for everyone to be present. So just arrange it, see the situation, whether 75 percent is made for the next two weeks, it can be assessed by each office,” he stressed.
On that occasion, he also appealed to the ministries of government agencies to reduce activities or meetings regularly offline (luring).
“I appeal to all ministries and institutions to minimize the activities of the meetings being held offline or offline and as much as possible online,” he said.
“But it’s also not forbidden to meet, I leave it to my friends to do their own assessment,” he continued.
