Thai media 77kaoded reported that measures to prevent the movement of people in and out of Chonburi were being stepped up as of today (Wednesday). 

 

People without the necessary documentation could be jailed for two years and /or fined 40,000 baht for crossing in and out of Chonburi.

 

They published pictures of large tailbacks and road blocks. 

 

They reported that Bang Lamung district chief Amnat Charoensri was getting tough with checkpoints on Sukhumvit Road into Pattaya and on Route 36 (Chonburi to Rayong) near the highways development office in Moo 10, Pong sub-district. 

 

Police, soldiers, protection agency officials and others would be checking temperatures and documentation. 

 

Only those with permission to travel can pass. 

 

In total there are 17 checkpoints across 11 districts.

 

The media urged all people to make sure they had the documentation if they intended to travel.

and these roadblocks are where and what time ?

A rumor I just heard is the highway from Bangkok to Pattaya is going to be under heavy surveillance starting today.  Same with some of the other highways.  I'll try to find a link.

Guess I won't be going to Makro Pattaya to stock up.

Well not if coming from Rayong or further... but  those residing in the Pattaya area should  be permitted to go shopping without any special documentation. This needs to be made clear.

From what I understand, it's just inter-provencial travel.  I've been all over Chonburi and not had any problems.  But I did see a checkpoint the other night in Baan Amphur, across from Phoenix GC road.  Where it always is for NYE and Songkran.
