People who visit 10 markets in Bangkok must check in and check out via the ThaiChana platform from Saturday (May 30), the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA)’s Data Centre said on Friday.

 

 

The 10 markets are:

 

▪︎ Chatuchak Weekend Market, Chatuchak district

 

▪︎ Prachaniwet 1 Market 1, Chatuchak district

 

▪︎ Muang Min Market, Min Buri district

 

▪︎ Bang Kapi Market (Latprao 127)

 

▪︎ Singha Market, Khlong Toei district

 

▪︎ Nong Chok Market, Nong Chok district

▪︎ Thonburi Market (Sanam Luang 2), Thawi Watthana district

▪︎ Devaraja Market, Dusit district

 

▪︎ Rat Burana Market, Rat Burana district

 

▪︎ Ratchadaphisek Market, Thonburi district

 

“The BMA will set up signs with QR code and send officials to publicise among people in the market area,” the officials at BMA Data Centre said. “Meanwhile, we would like to ask customers and retailers in the market to wear face mask and undergo the BMA measures to contain the spread of Covid-19.”

you can scan it with a regular QR code scanner of any make.  The scanned QR code takes you to the site where you check-in and check-out.  Additionally, they ask if sanitizer was accessible and a few other questions after checking out...

I don't know why people think they must use Line and that it accesses all their contacts.

I use a simple QR scanner (with annoying ads though)

Its not only in Bangkok, Its pretty much every market in Thailand. I live in Kalasin and every market up here you got to scan the QR code or sign in your name and telephone number on clip board. Majority of people here just sign.

Lots of fake names on those clipboard papers. Donald Trump and Mickey Mouse are popular choices 🙂

I hope they're doing at better job than at Big C in Udon.

 

Leaving the house, I genuinely forgot to take my mask. Arrived at Big C, girl at check-in said 'no mask'. I told her I'd forgotten it, and asked if there a shop selling them?

She pointed to a drinks stall outside. Bought a new cloth one for 25 Baht and went in to Big C.

 

I was asked for my mobile phone. Said I didn't have one.

It was a lie, but my battery was very low and I was worried it would die while scanning, entering info, etc. Thought it would be easier to 'sign in'.

Another girl wanted me to write my details. The first girl said to the second girl that I'd been scanned already, and I was allowed to pass.

I have absolutely no idea why the first girl said that. As we say here, "Up to them."

 

Out of interest, I see Peterdk said after scanning, that you are taken to a website to 'check-in'.

Does the website access your mobile to read your mobile number automatically, or do you need to type it in yourself each time?

So what happens if there's an outbreak and your on the ThaiChana list?
1. Do you get a free COVID19 test?
2. Get ordered to self quarantine?

3. Get sent into State quarantine?
Not mention about this yet but I guess State Quarantine as it's a nice little earner!

I'm guessing there'll still be a sign in/out option,

So if I have Line and a data plan then there is no need for me download the ThaiChana app.  Is that correct?
