TRIBUNBATAM.id - Tourism observer Azril Azahari said that the polemic regarding quarantine occurred partly because of the lack of standardization and consistency.

According to him, this affects people's understanding.

He conveyed this in connection with national tourists who asked to be quarantined at Wisma Atlet when they returned to Indonesia

Thursday (12/23), the Covid-19 Task Force Circular (SE) Number 25 of 2021 stated that several groups were allowed to be quarantined at the Athlete House.

This group is Indonesian Migrant Workers (PMI), students, or State Civil Apparatus (ASN).

If they are not included in this group, then national tourists must be quarantined at the hotel and paid. 

However, the 10 and 14 day quarantine rules are considered quite reasonable because Omicron variants are often not detected in a short time. 

Another problem that arises, he explained, is when several groups seem to receive different treatment. 

Although the Covid-19 Task Force has explained the reasons behind the quarantine policy for high-ranking officials, there are many people who haven't received detailed information regarding this matter.

He said there should be clear policy standards regarding international travellers.

Who, what, and how are the quarantine provisions at the athlete's house.

He also saw the need for thorough socialization to all levels of society through one door or only one source.

So, things like jealousy or things that are not in accordance with the rules can be minimized.

Not only a matter of standardization and consistency, national tourists must also be responsible, he said.

The standardization in question is, not only for quarantine, but also for travel regulations in general, such as between land, sea and air travel. (*lia)
