The National Police Chief, Police General Drs. Listyo Sigit Prabowo, M.Sc., instructed all his staff to form PPKM posts in people’s markets. This is aimed at ensuring that the community’s economy continues to run according to health protocols.
In the extension of PPKM Level 4 to August 2, 2021, the government has relaxed the community economic center. Among them, the people’s market is allowed to operate but with strict health protocols.
“All ranks formed the PPKM Command Post in the market to anticipate the easing of the populist economy,” explained the National Police Chief, Jakarta, Wednesday (28/7/2021).
The former Banten Police Chief emphasized that the PPKM command post in the market will later be tasked with ensuring that traders and visitors have implemented standard health protocols in accordance with the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The National Police Chief said that the Command Post will have to implement the One Gate System to limit visitor capacity. Then, do a body temperature check at the entrance.
“Preparing the location for washing hands, distributing masks, setting the distance between traders and conducting random antigen swab checks,” explained the National Police Chief.
Not only that, the National Police Chief stated that, at the PPKM post in the market, mobile vaccinations were also prepared in order to accelerate the formation of herd immunity or group immunity against the corona virus.
The PPKM command post in the market will also prepare Level 4 PPKM social assistance from the government to the people most affected by the economy.
In implementing the PPKM Command Post in the market, Sigit asked his staff to synergize and communicate with all related parties in its implementation.
