Pattaya: It's official - city in lockdown from today - ALL to wear masks outside

Recommended Posts

More to the point why are there any foreigners still in Pattaya in the first place.

They've all had time to abort the country completely or move to another city even if only a temporary measure

Now we'll hear farang whinging left right and centre. With the 10 day booze ban as well coming shortly they must be gluttons for punishment

Does the mask rule apply within a mooban?

 

Does the passport rule apply if I'm just walking along, far from any checkpoint?

I was wondering the same as that is PRIVATE ground not public

Photos from the checkpoints would be appreciated. History in the making. Now Pattaya finally did get it's final nail in the coffin. Wind whistling on empty sois.

"People should carry their full ID. Foreigners should carry their passport."  What part of this don't you understand ?

Why feel the need to distinguish between foreigners and Thais, everyone is in this together. It's unfortunate ThaiVisa is pushing the foreigner/Thai distinction with the stories it is highlighting, some issues are more important that clickbait revenue. 

so true.

Masks don't protect you from sneezes. Drops can go into your eyes.

too many farangs so dumb and arrogant and stupid...besides not being able to read, they lack the common sense of understanding that in a lockdown police has to be able to verify anyone eg travel history so yeah all you dumb <deleted> COMPLYBAND CARRY YR PASSPORT AND HAND IT OVER TO THE POLICE WITH A SMILE.  This is not about you, just supportyr local community in this global crisis.

Well, for those playing the "blame game" about foreigners and masks, I just came back from a 7-11 run (had to pay the Water Bill and stock up on some liquids). 

At least half a dozen people not wearing masks at all. All Thais. One was a woman buying something from a food cart, with her (10 ? 12 ?) year old son sitting on the scooter (with no mask at all).
A couple others had masks, under their chins. Standing right next to the entrance.

Inside, they had a guy checking temperatures and providing squeezes of hand sanitizer. One of the staff was wiping down the handles of the shopping baskets with sanitizer as well. The staff were all masked of course - and wearing those blue medical gloves as well.
One girl told me she "re-sanitizes" after ever second customer. Maybe a bit excessive for most, but maybe not so for people in high traffic environments.

Didn't see any "foreigners" on that short little jaunt, which is probably the last time I go out of the village for any reason over the next month. 

Joked with my neighbour (he's a Sgt Major in the RTP) about the lock down. I mentioned about not going into Pattaya and he said "Yes, can not go. Railway barricaded." (I knew that but just wanted to see if maybe he knew something I didn't.)

Can't be bothered to ride down there to look or take pics though.

I don't really understand the purpose of publishing a map and location of checkpoints, unless it's information being published so people can avoid them?  Otherwise, seems counter-productive.

People can still come and go by boat. 😁
