The Covid-19 pandemic enters a new chapter. Currently, the government is encouraging Adaptation to New Habits (AKB). All parties need to work together to communicate this period so that people have the same perception.  

JAKARTA, PRINDONESIA.CO – During this period, the areas included in the blue zone, offices, and public places were opened gradually. Public transportation has begun to return to normal operations with strict health protocols. This is because the country is in the transition period transition that aimed at reviving the wheels of the economy when the cases are still high. 

It is not easy to invite all elements of the community to obey the government's appeal. Especially in the midst of situations and policies that are rapidly changing, there are many new terms and tremendous boredom from being unable to move freely outside for a long period of time. It needs the support of all parties, including public relations (PR) practitioners, so that this country can immediately get out of the crisis while still prioritizing safety and health. 

Widyawati, Head of the Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) Communication and Community Service Bureau even considered the AKB period as the most difficult period. Because the cases can increase even there are only a few people who are careless about implementing health protocols when carrying out activities outside the home. "At this time, a collaboration between ministries, agencies, and regional governments PR, and even all State Civil Apparatus has a very important role in communicating new habits to the public," she said by telephone on Wednesday (7/8/2020).
