    The annual exodus of Indonesians from urban centres to their hometowns, known locally as mudik, for the Idul Fitri holiday has been banned. The ban will be effective starting on 24 April, although sanctions for violators will only be enforced starting 7 May. Travel into and out of COVID-19 ‘red zones’ and areas which have implemented PSBB measures, including Jakarta, will be prohibited under the ban. However, inter-provincial toll roads and public transportation will remain open so as to facilitate travel for essential workers and services.
    All passengers are required to wear a mask when using public transportation in Jakarta.
