Closure orders for sub-districts: Karon, Kata, and Rawai

Recommended Posts

It looks like the lock-down that was applied to Patong in the past few days will be applied to more sub-districts of Phuket on Monday (6/4/2020). The sub-districts affected will be Rawai, Kata, and Karon.


From the Phuket New Era Expats group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NewEraExpats/


UPDATE: It looks like the Phuket New Era Expats group is getting most of their news on the closures from the Newshawk Phuket group, so you might want to follow the news there (although almost everything is in Thai). A good use for Google Chrome's translate feature or the Translate app using your smart phone's camera:

The pictures below are for the announcement pertaining to Rawai, but I believe the ones for Karon and Kata sub-districts are substantially the same.
 

The gist of the order appears to be the following:
 

"From tomorrow 6 April 2020 until further notice, Karon and Rawai Sub-districts are going to be locked down. Nobody will be allowed to get in or out, except essential logistics. The residents are asked to stay in the accommodation at all time. The authority will disinfect the whole sub-district and test everyone."

Well this is a bummer... I supposed to go from Kata to Rawai tomorrow to pick up some documents... Is this workable, or should I ask them to send it by post which could take a while... (it's only 10 minutes by motorbike)

Nothing to report coming from Chalong circle to Kata. Smooth as a baby's rear end.

Rode the bike to bypass and back to Kata and didn't see a single policeman or check point. 

I think they close after 8pm only. Day time is fine.

I supposed to go from Kata to Rawai to get some documents... Rawai company just told me to stay at home and they will send the driver to bring the docs here... They said "we must send it today *because Kata & Karon will be closed from tomorrow*".
