The Indonesian resort of Bali plans to start receiving foreign tourists again. This was announced by the local government on Monday, July 6.
Domestic tourists will be able to visit Bali from July 31, foreigners are expected from September 11, reports Bloomberg.
The opening of tourism is one of the steps to restore the region’s economy, for which travelers are a major source of income.
The island’s governor, Wyan Koster, has asked the public to wear masks, keep a distance and avoid large crowds of people to prevent the coronavirus from spreading widely.
In early June, 465 Coronavirus infected people were identified in Bali, according to official figures. However, by July 6, their number had risen to 1,900. This phenomenon is associated with the return of migrant workers to the region.
In late May, Dominican authorities said they plan to resume receiving foreign tourists on July 5. However, the state of emergency, introduced in March, was lifted only on July 2.
