Due to the current Corona Virus outbreak, many daily activites are being limited. Regulations on social distancing and limitations of public transportation have effected many lives. Corresponding with the declaration from the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the COVID-19 as a global pandemic on March 11 2020 and referencing towards the circular letter of the President Director of BAZNAS No. 055/DIRUT/BAZNAS/III/2020 regarding BAZNAS Alertness Towards the Spread of COVID-19, Puskas BAZNAS has implemented Work From Home (BDR).

The implementation of Work From Home was effective as of Monday, March 16 2020. The implementation of this program will continue to be effective until further notice. The decision on the implementation of Work From Home is part of BAZNAS’s contribution towards preventing the spread of COVID-19. Strategic Research Team 1 has created a systematic schedule in order to work effectively while avoiding leaving their houses during self-quarantine.

Strategic Research 1’s working hours continue normally, starting with an all team meeting via Skype at 9 A.M and ending with a daily report at 5 P.M. Among several of the on-going assignments of Strategic Research 1 is the monitoring of the Zakat and Wakaf Literacy Index Survey progress, the online meeting for the Shariah Compliance Indeks pilot project, daily Puskas News updates, drafting of Puskas Working Paper Series etc. All work is done through online platforms such as Google Meet, Google Docs, Skype and Whatsapp. In this technology-based era, even a pandemic won’t stop Puskas in achieving their goals for the betterment of the community.
