Disease control measures at a popular Phetchaburi beach that has just reopened have been tightened after visitors ignored rules meant to curb the spread of Covid-19.

 

Two additional checkpoints have been set up at Chao Samran beach, to enforce bans on gathering, drinking alcohol, and activities in the sea.

 

The beach lies just 150 kilometres south of Bangkok and is a popular weekend getaway. 

 

Local officials manning one checkpoint are measuring the body temperature of visitors, while ensuring they are wearing face masks and also checking in and out of the beach via the ThaiChana platform. Visitors found with a temperature of more than 37.5 degrees Celsius will be barred entry to the beach.

 

"However, some tourists are still violating the rules," said local officials. "So, we have set up two additional checkpoints and are collaborating with Haad Chao Samran Police Station to arrest violators."

 

Meanwhile, Boonyod Maklai, mayor of Haad Chao Samran subdistrict, said that visitors at the beach would be closely monitored.

 

"We instructed our officials to make sure tourists are aware of the rules, which have been set by the Public Health Ministry and provincial authorities," he said.

The officials in Prachuap must be really tough headed. Such a waste of energy.

The measures are employing people........ don't forget that, irrespective of your personal opinions.
