News and Events of Pariliana
Many of you are asking us how it is in Bali with the Corona Virus (aka COVID-19), so I take the pen to thank all those who worry about us and to give some tracks to those who seek information in order to know, for example, whether to postpone or not their next stay…
For the extended family with Ayu and Kadek and all those who work with Pariliana, everything is fine. We are all in good health, except for small colds which make us shudder but which seem mild. We work part time and limit our trips according to the instructions of the Indonesian government.
Indonesia is still at the very beginning of the spread of the pandemic but already the curve is exponential*. We went from 172 officially registered cases on March 16 to 309 on March 19*. Alas, the victims are increasing just as much. However, as there are no Balinese victims yet in the nearby villages, the communities do not really feel concerned and do not really understand the why of the confinement instructions but this is starting to move.
Indonesia has chosen to close its schools immediately for at least 15 days and since Monday for some and Tuesday for others, the children of Bali, like young Europeans, are in "tele-school" and even " tele-exams ”from home.
A state of health emergency is declared until May 29*. Today, 20 March, the borders are closed and, in addition to the entry bans for all those who have stayed in the last 14 days in certain European countries (including France, Spain, Germany and Italy of course) and other countries of the world, now, and for at least 30 days, you need a visa to apply to the Indonesian embassy of your country of residence to cross the Indonesian borders.
So that greatly limits the arrival of new customers. Of course! We are going to go on a diet while the customers come back and cross our fingers so that it goes quickly.
The French Embassy advises all non-resident nationals to return to France quickly before there are no more commercial lines. Only, the prices of plane tickets have increased so much that it dissuades some who think that they are much better here while waiting for the Corona to disappear in Europe but what will it be when the peak will be reached here ??
Hopefully the issue of confinement* will be quickly understood by the Balinese and more generally all Indonesians so that everything gets back to normal as soon as possible and that we have the pleasure of welcoming you very soon.
We think about you. Take care of yourself.
Good confinement to all
Wayan and Nathalie for Pariliana
