Wear a face mask for your travel by bus

The wearing of face mask is now a must for all passengers travelling on all public buses, under new rules announced by the Land Transport Department.

 

Anyone not wearing a face mask will be denied boarding a bus while passengers are required to keep the mask on throughout the journey, said the department's director general Chirute Visalachitra today (March 26), adding that bus operators must strictly adhere to the rules.

 

They must prohibit anyone without a face mask from getting on board , but they could offer masks to them at reasonable price, Chirute said.

 

Anyone presenting a body temperature higher than 37.5 degree Celcius will also be banned from entering all public transportation systems.

 

The Department of Rail Transport has instructed all train and electric train operators to require passengers to wear masks.

Would that be 2.5 baht each, as stipulated by the government?

Everyone should be wearing masks. One of the key ways to reduce transmission.

Hopefully they will do as they say and enforce it, not just on buses but trains, airports and all public areas. 
 

Even a surgical mask with limited protection may prevent someone sneezing directly onto you.

Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea all had high face mask wearing compliance.

I also started to wear a mask in the hallways of the condo, you never know who was walking there 10 seconds earlier...

It's more about not transmitting it to someone else. Remember this can be transmitted when asymptomatic. A cough or a sneeze is enough. Maybe on someone or something.

3 hours after I mentioned the hallways, several guys sprayed all the open-air hallways with noisy spraying machines. It's organized by the district.

Wow! Be careful. That sounds like sanitization. This means someone in your block, whatever, has been confirmed or is suspected. It could of course be spraying for mozzies. Best you find out. Was the spraying smokey? If so that's for mozzies. Misty that's sanitization.

It sounds reasonable to me, you'd better buy a mask than miss the bus.

Again, masks may be not that useful, but they help the public feel more comfortable.

Not for mosquitoes.

One of the places where you need N95. There's a real possibility of catching aerosolized virus when in a small container with people coughing. The surgical masks will do very little against that. Stay home.
