Quasi lockdown imposed in Chonburi and other COVID-19 hotspots


Recommended Posts

I’m in Chiang Mai, hoping to drive down to Pattaya at the beginning of February and take residence in a house I rented for 2 months. 

 

Anyone knows where I apply for the travel certificate? Of course, the authorities may reject my reason as be none-essential, but I might as well try.

The one thing that amazes me is that this isn't implemented nationwide, until February 15 at least.

Obviously, since last March, the Thai government has been reading up on the British government's "decisive and positive decision making" techniques.

Ummm...it's called trying to prevent dozens of deaths every day.  Sad you don't understand this and just deny the severity of the situation.

Would it not be sensible to lockdown the whole country for the next month until they have things under control? 

The Thais do have things under control; it's the United States and Western Europe where things are out of control.

I would stand by for a day or two.... the regulations may change or even be rescinded when they realize how much trouble  and work they have caused. At least it might end up being a form you can print off and fill in yourself like last year.

Live in Hua Hin. Arguing with wife that certificate WILL be needed for any travel to Bangkok ( passes through Samut Sakhon) even for her medical appointment in Bangkok. She says not I say absolutely. Am I correct or ( God forbid) is she? 

I would say your wife is correct, as you say you are merely passing through Samut Sakhon, it’s not like you will be stopping off at the seafood market to grab some prawns. Also the likeliness of the virus making its way through the vents in your car and infecting you is about zero. 
 

Any roads that branch off the main highway into Samut Sakhon will be closed off, or will have checkpoints preventing unauthorised access, the gas stations along the perimeter road will be closed or they will not be accessible from the highway, so you will not be able to fill up with gas or take a pee.

 

Interesting you say “God forbid” if your wife is correct ?

Yes, last time my driver I have used for 3 years actually printed out and filled in the form for me.

Not sure the same is possible now.

It was obvious that inter-province travel ought have been banned before the New Year holiday when almost the whole population is on the move. I see by the figures that it's too late now. My main concern was the large number of Bankokians and others who always descend on Pattaya over the holiday. 7 days for the virus to get a grip, didn't expect anything else.

Same same for Koh Chang now in lockdown or are we?, maybe today on, off  tomorrow, it is now but maybe not or could be. hope that is confusing enough.

While the authorities have stressed this is not a lockdown, only essential travel is now possible.
