A friend just posted this on his timeline:

Seems pretty clear. Your village/moo ban is not your home, it is where your home is located.

So basically, step outside your house onto a soi anywhere, for any reason, you'd better be wearing a mask. 

Don't forget that there are a lot of people who would probably love to call a "hot line" to report someone for not wearing a mask. Think about the recent stories of old foreigners suddenly having a "smart car" show up at their house - because someone in the neighbourhood decided to call the authorities on him.

He did not mentioned the "price" for not carry passport  and when needed to carry….?

I think that was a Pattaya order (about the carrying your passport), not a Chon Buri one.

And I think that order (the Pattaya one) was squashed the minute they took the barricades down, but there hasn't been an official announcement about it yet, or about a replacement plan.

Required while driving a car, alone?

That would depend on a couple of things: 
1) How anal the person seeing/reporting/stopping you is and, 
2) How tinted are your windows ?

By the "letter of the law", if you are driving your car, alone or not, you have "left your home".

But hey, it's only 100,000 baht (and/or) a year in jail (and probably deportation and black listing after that) ! 
Maybe worth the risk !
(For some people !)

Also remember TiT (This is Thailand) and that could be a real money maker for some people ! Would be a shame if you pulled up to an intersection and while watching some cute girl you don't notice the BiB walking up and tapping on your window !

Hasn't been mentioned by WHO, CDC or anybody as totally unnecessary. The virus cannot penetrate your skin so if you wash hands often no need to be putting on and taking off gloves. Can't touch face or eyes if wearing mask or glasses/goggles.. That's is why WHO and CDC recommend washing  hands often NOT wearing gloves.

...i realise and understand that..Im talking about people who touch surfaces where the virus is then transferring to their eyes/nose/mouth. as few wear goggles etc.

Maybe I am missing something but that makes no sense, you dont get the virus through your skin, you touch a surface with a bare hand or with a glove, and then maybe touch face its the same, glove or no glove. What difference does wearing a glove make, the virus is either on a bare hand or on a glove covering the hand. If you are removing the gloves then sanitising your hand, what was the point of wearing gloves in the first place.

...the virus is alive on many different surfaces for varying times..this is how it is transferred to the eyes, mouth, nose by people mainly in an involuntary action. The wearing of gloves would make an additional barrier..as doctors/surgeons/nursing staff do. It does make perfect sense.

...wow! nice big font you've got there!

..i think Nurse Molly Lixbie is a nutter..imagine the amount of bacteria and viruses your hand picks up during a day..this is why i think it was 1930 gloves were introduced into hospitals and immediately there was an 80% reduction in germs/viruses and bacterium being carried and thus contaminating and infected other surfaces and patients and staff. Staph. Aureus is still a major health threat in any hospital..oh but then you probably knew that!

                    ..the idea is too take the gloves off after you've done your business.

Again unescessary as "an additional barrier " is not needed as the "first barrier" your skin cannot be penetrated by the virus and if you wash it often you won't transmit to your face/eyes. That is why you haven't seen the WHO/CDC Dr's or nurses recomend wearing gloves.  In the video I sent you a link to the nurse demonstrates why wearing gloves are not needed. If you touch your bare contaminated hand to your face you will also do it with a glove on. Hey if you feel safer wearing them up to you.

Nurse Molly Lixbie..doesnt exhibit an aseptic technique, and being a nurse she should know better. I realise too that ACE2 receptors are not on the surface of human skin..Im talking about adding an extra barrier to those areas that are vulnerable..and very few wear eye protection...you go ahead with your ideas and i will wear my gloves..PS I am quite within my rights as TV member to express any pertinent view and offer suggestions.

Of course you can give your opinion I am simply answering your question in older post where  "you" asked why no one seemed to be recomending wearing gloves. Gave you the answer. And as far as eye protection all the cashiers at Tops in Central Lad Prao had face shields or safety goggles and masks on when I was their Wensday. Also some 7--11 girls have them on and shoppers at Tops ----all had masks on and some wore wrap around sun glasses and a few safety goggles and 1  had a face shield.

Yes i can confirm all the road concrete barriers havebeen removed.

At the moment i don't have the answer for Songkran and the curfew

but i don't see any reason to change the actual nightime curfew

there is very little people staying in Pattaya actually and they don't

really have the wish to do a big party for songkran, most of them are

struggling financialy and all their energy is focused on how to find some money

to pay food and accomodations.

..i was making a statement..posing the question..your reply meant nothing..there has to be a major flaw in all these cases..the huge amount of persons being infected..lets say one month ago most wore a mask..few wore eye protection as well, but a fair percentage of Asians do wear prescription glasses, which in itself is another barrier. This leaves the presence of the CoViD-19 that has landed by coughing, sneezing or transported by another human on their clothing, or on the surface of their masks, or on the surface of their skin which is then transferred to their face, eyes, mouth due to poor personal hygiene. I know that the human skin cannot absorb the virus and i also know that there are no ACE2 receptors on the surface of human skin. So there has to be an avenue where this virus is regularly getting into the recipients body, and that has to be by their own hand. If disposable gloves are worn whilst you are out doing your business and then stripped off one inside the other and then wrapped in your mask, which must be disposed of correctly; then you have dramatically increased your chances of not catching this virus. This month (April) is see many more folk wearing a visor but are still gloveless and handling a multitude of things, be it packaged or perishables plus the dirtiest thing of all, paper money! (I carry a zip-lock plastic bag and open it for the cashier to drop my money in..i seal it and disinfect it when i get home).

As far as your shop staff goes..it is now obligatory everyone wear a mask when out in public; visors etc are optional. Keep safe Mr. Tony125.

I did not say I was confused. Perhaps you confuse me with some other poster.

 

The translation provided was "People of all nationalities are to wear masks when outside their homes and places of stay."

Our mooban is in many ways an extension of our homes. We own the streets and sidewalks, we pay guards to restrict access. We walk around to stretch our legs, keep a polite distance as we pass. I just wondered if I take off my mask for a moment while I'm watering the lawn, am I gonna get pounced on by some self-righteous jack*ss.  

 

 

unless you live on a gated and guarded compound (similar to one on the Walking Dead show) that does NOT ALLOW any visitors then you should be wearing a mask for EVERYONES benefit. Time to grow some common sense.

Maybe not stupid at all. Maybe just because they know what part the most, or maybe all of those in Pattaya that get infected lived or work. You have to be a little bit smarter before you call anyone an idiot. 

 

Maybe it is you who should try to be a little smarter...
