Abstract

This study aimed to analyze the implementation of the COVID-19 Task Force Circular on virtual mudik activities during the pandemic. This study used a normative legal research method through a statutory approach. The research specifications used were descriptive analysis using secondary data obtained through literature review. The COVID-19 Task Force published Circular Letter Number 13 of 2021 on April 7, 2021 in order to carry out its tasks and avoid a rise in COVID-19 transmission during in the holiest seasons of Ramadan and Eid - ul in 1442 Hijri. The COVID-19 Task Force has issued a circular suspending Eid - ul mudik activities for year 1442 Hijri in all areas of Indonesia from 6 to 17 May 2021. Other than that, the whole community was encouraged to eat suhoor and break the fast with family at home, conduct virtual gatherings, and limit physical gatherings with family members or other relatives who are not in the same location. With this circular, the mudik activity, which has become a tradition for Indonesian people to celebrate Eid al-Fitr with family in their hometown, was suspended and encouraged to do it virtually. In this virtual mudik activity, factors such as (1) law, (2) law enforcement officers, (3) facilities, (4) community, and (5) culture affected the implementation of the circular.
