11How is the Program running during Pandemic?

We are fully aware of the danger of COVID-19, so we have developed protocols in case of a future pandemic situation. During the pandemic, we will conduct remote activities by following government guidelines. We have also implemented health protocols to minimize the spread of the disease.

Depending on the circumstances, we may continue to conduct remote activities in the following year until the government declares the pandemic to be under control. Once the pandemic is under control, activities will resume at the Apple Developer Academy @BINUS facility as normal.
