Provinces maintain COVID-19 preventative measures
NAKHON SI THAMMARAT (NNT) - Even with fewer cases of COVID-19 reported in the past couple of days, provinces are still on high alert to prevent new clusters of COVID-19 from forming, with special attention being given to entertainment and service venues.
Vice Governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat Trairat Chairat has led a team of health officials and security officers to inspect nightclubs, bars, karaoke venues, and entertainment venues to ensure their compliance with preventative measures against the spread of COVID-19.
These establishments were allowed to reopen recently, after the province lifted a closure order previously enforced following the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in the country. They are now required to screen customers for suspicious symptoms and fever, tell customers to check-in on Thai Chana platform and use the Mor Chana contact tracing application, ensure the cleanliness of the venues, and ensure compliance with health and safety protocols by their employees.
The Provincial Communicable Diseases Committee will take make an assessment of the visit, to prepare for the next stage of relaxation in their meeting tomorrow.
In Mae Hong Son, Provincial Governor Sithichai Jindaluang meanwhile, presided over a meeting of the Provincial Communicable Diseases Committee to assess the risks faced by the province.
So far, there have been no cases of COVID-19 reported in Mae Hong Son since the start of the new wave, however the province is facing threats from migrants illegally crossing the border, and the new situation across the border.
Mae Hong Son’s provincial communicable diseases committee has agreed to extend its operations at four disease control checkpoints indefinitely, until the situation is resolved. The province is asking organizers of conventions, seminars, and festivals, including the Poy Sang Long festival in March, to downsize their events and refrain from serving or selling alcoholic beverages.
