Covid-19: Nakhon Phanom sealed off to foreigners, Thais who have left for just 5 hours need 14 day quarantine

The governor of Nakhon Phanom province in Thailand's north east has issued more regulations ramping up Covid-19 restrictions. 
 
No foreigners can enter the province unless they have a letter of permission from the governor. 
 
This is principally designed to stop any migrant workers from Laos entering the province. With business grinding to a total halt the migrants are surplus to requirements at this time. 
 
The Friendship 3 bridge remains open for Thais to come back. 
 
But any Thai returnee must observe a 14 day quarantine if they have been in Laos for 5 hours or more.
 
Governor Sayam Sirimongkhon warned boat operators against giving lifts across the Mekhong River to people and promised heavy fines and jai;l terms for violators.

I entered by road yesterday, no problem at checkpoint apart from a temp check and where have I come from - I am an obvious falang. Also, it was incoming only, no checkpoint if going the other way
