Implementing this requirement, mall managers must provide a QR code at all entrances.
Chairman of the Indonesian Shopping Center Management Association (APPBI), Alphonzus Widjaja, said that currently 85 percent of shopping centers and malls in Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang, and Surabaya ready to carry out the mandatory inspection of vaccine certificates.
“So far, 85 percent of shopping centers are ready to use the PeduliLindung application in the field inspection system in each shopping center,” Alphonzus said at a press conference, Wednesday (11/8).
The remaining 15 percent is still in preparation for the PeduliLindung application’s QR code, to ensure mall operations can run smoothly.
“There are still shopping centers that are in the final stages of preparation, because to ensure inspections through the PeduliLindung crossbar there are no obstacles or very minimal obstacles. So there are still some who are preparing for this,” he explained.
During the trial period until August 16, 2021, shopping centers and malls are allowed to operate from 10:00 to 20:00 WIB with a maximum capacity of 25 percent.
All visitors including employees must have been vaccinated and proven by a vaccine certificate in the PeduliLindung application, in good health, and wearing masks. All visitors and employees are required to scan the QR code when entering and leaving the location so that it can be recorded properly.
