PHUKET:-- The Phuket office of the Public Relations Department has posted a notice laying out the ground rules for Songkran this coming Monday (Apr 13), which specifically states no water play.

 

The notice, issued by Culture Ministry Permanent Secretary Kitsayapong Siri, specifically orders people to not join or organise any festivals and to not join any crowds or large gatherings.

 

It also orders people to not return to their “place of birth”, presumably a person’s family home outside the province where the person may be now living and working, and specifically bans any water play.

“Phuket Governor in an interview aired today (Apr explained that by Monday all 17 subdistricts in Phuket will be under “lockdown” orders.

However, he added that people still allowed outside their homes, but must stay inside their subdistrict.

The Governor has repeatedly urged people to stay indoors to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

This still applies during Songkran, The Phuket News has been told.“

 

Thanks for clearing that up Governor.

Your post makes no sense at all.

 

How do you think money will be made of this, and even more so, how will money be made from tourists of this?

You can only catch or give Covid to people outside your sub-district, understand.
