For tourists I take it they mean foreigners.......but regardless......everyone knows the rules.......like them or not......fine all those blatantly flouting the law.

I wish they would....  I was in town yesterday and must have seen a total of 12 people without masks, or wearing them improperly. One was a Thai, smoking a cigarette as he drove nearby my place. The r

Totally agree, to be balanced they should take photos are the local markets too 🙂

Were these  two  possibly exercising, seem to be carrying water etc.

If exercising, masks are not required?

Doesn't  seem to be clear as many have questioned this  on  this  forum.

This article is  clearly  meant to stir  up the "bad  Farang"  image when its  apparent to me  many more  Thais are not wearing masks. It realy matters not one bit as to where masks are or  are  not  being worn when rules  have been issued clearly  stating  they should be worn when leaving home outdoors.

Chicken, egg, or egg chicken? They got pictures to prove it!😁

I  think you  will find it was mentioned in Phuket very recently that not wearing a mask when exercising was  allowed. Again  stupid to  have rules for different areas goverened by the  regional boss, just creates confusion.

You  only  have to  look at the last few  days of foreigners can get a  vaccine  and then the usual complete nationalistic U  turn.

Pattaya is not in Phuket! Provinces can have their own rules. This place is full of confusion, but the mask wearing requirement is unequivocal.

Agree......runners in BKK (that I have seen) all wearing masks.......god knows how they manage.......but smokers blatantly walking around..... mask around their chin(s).

Foreigners pay fines , Thais do sit ups, or push downs.... and a lot of Thai this morning on the news applying for a loan on the bank were not wearing a mask even the staff of bank no mask and no social distancing too.. But the falangs are bad ones and are treated improperly by everyone in this country so why should they follow the rules than? 

Oh where to start... bank tellers are behind glass screens and last time I went into a branch, they were being quite stringent. I will give you one reason, they can be chucked out!

This article is from last year but states this, can you show  me  a new one mentioning exercising?  https://thepattayanews.com/2020/05/07/mask-wearing-remains-mandatory-in-chonburi-fines-still-reportedly-given-out/

 

However, it was also stated that one should always have a face-mask on their person and be prepared to wear when not exercising. The Pattaya News advises readers to ensure they have one available if stopped or asked while out for a jog.
