PHUKET: People breaking the provincial ban on going to any of Phuket’s beaches during the current COVID crisis were given a sharp reminder from police late yesterday afternoon (Apr 3) after officers sounded their siren, sending some beachgoers scrambling across the sand to flee.

 

Capt Theera Chanthong and fellow officers from Cherng Talay Police arrived at Ley Phang Beach at about 6pm after being informed that many tourists were back enjoying the beach, ignoring the order issued by Phuket Governor Phakaphong Tavipatana last Sunday (Mar 28).

 

Under the order, all beaches in Phuket were closed. The order is to remain in effect until at least Apr 10, but may be extended further. (See story here.)

Eventually a Chinese style system to access a beach will be imposed. Register with an ID card or passport, pay a fee for a limited time (say 2 hours), get a card, go through a turnstile. Get penalized if you exceed your limit.

You need to thank those having beach gatherings when that was advice only. Now that it is established people cannot behave responsibly on their own, all needs to be enforced.

On Surin beach the other week about 20 farangs having a party drinking and blasting music looked like Italians if people had just gone there 1 or 2 and keep your distance there would not have been a problem

I saw at least 3 massage shops open today. Are they allowed because the initial ban was 2 weeks to the 31 of March or are they bending the rules?
