The national COVID-19 task force has tightened travel restrictions for the days leading up to and after Idul Fitri to further discourage mudik (exodus) and suppress the spread of COVID-19.
In a circular issued on Wednesday, the task force referred to a survey conducted by the Transportation Ministry’s research and development agency that showed “groups of people wish to go on mudik one week before and after the ban.”
The government has officially prohibited mudik for May 6-17. This year’s Idul Fitri celebration is slated for May 12 or 13, depending on the sighting of the moon. The peak of mudik usually occurs a week before the holiday.
