NOTE: Our translation is not an official notice, you can refer back to the official notice in the Thai Document attached below. Ryan and I did it to try to help foreigners or those who can't read Thai to have a better understanding of the announcement involve everyone who lives in Chumphon.

 

@Jonathan Fairfield @webfact @ubonjoe et .al. may reach out to SpeakFree directly or myself if any more assistance is needed.   Thanks to SpeakFree Language center for the Unofficial English Translation and the original Thai images is also included in that post and attached here.  I only assume that other provinces in Thailand will issue similar notices.

Interesting timing; I am listening to a public service announcement over a PA system here in Ranode (Songkhla) that is saying the same basic thing, but tailored to this community...

It shouldn't be all that different wherever you go in Thailand.  I do like the fact that people are still functioning.  Markets are still running. Restaurants are still open (take away food).  It's still thailand.   But just a lot more face masks.    Not sure if the beach will be deserted or not.    Great place to eat your takeaway food.
