Chiang Mai's governor Charoenrit Sanguansat and airport officials inspected arrangements for incoming passengers at Chiang Mai airport after new ramped up regulations came in for Thais and foreigners entering the province. 

 

All foreigners are required to undergo mandatory 14 day quarantine.

 

If they already live in Chiang Mai they can do this at their homes while maintaining contact with health authorities.

If they are just visiting they are being taken to accommodation at three hotels in the city for 14 days: The BP Chiang Mai City Hotel, the May Flower Grande and The Chaya Resort and Spa. 

 

People who break quarantine can be jailed for a year and/or fined 100,000 baht.

You'd be surprised. You could hardly walk on the Sunday market for tourists before the virus.

Yes, there's one at the Saraphi PTT station going inbound. There's also another one at the Doi Saket police station on Hwy 118.

He arrived into Chiang Mai by air, direct from the USA?
