Pattaya Shutdown! Severe restrictions on movement and closure of hotels among new measures as Covid-19 cases rise rapidly

A top level meeting yesterday of the governor of Chonburi, district chiefs, mayors and health personnel decided on a ten point plan that is set to be signed and implemented today. 

 

The measures will leave any tourists remaining in Pattaya at the whim of hotel owners as to whether they will stay open, notes Thaivisa.

 

It includes curfew measures, the closure of hotels, restriction on employees leaving the province and the shutdown of Pattaya.

 

No one will be able to go in and out of the resort unless it is absolutely necessary. 

 

The meeting heard that infections in Chonburi had rocketed to 61. 

 

The new measures are:

 

1. Each district sets up their own taskforce to ensure compliance with the regulations

 

2. Hotels and places that resemble hotels are to close down and employees are to stay at the hotels and not leave Chonburi to go home. Hotels that still have guests were given three days to decide whether to close down or stay open. 

 

3. Pattaya will be sealed off. No one will be allowed to go in or out. Checkpoints will decide on special cases. 

 

4. All beaches in Chonburi are to close to any social gathering but swimming is still allowed. 

 

5. Gas stations are to close between 10 pm and 5 am.

 

6. Some markets ordered to close. 

 

7. People are asked to observe an 11pm to 5 am curfew (if the government announces separate regulations to be followed people must follow the government orders).

 

8. Certain commercial businesses are to be ordered shut (This vague reference was not explained, notes Thaivisa)

 

9. There is to be no assemblies at reservoirs. 

 

10. Male and female hairdressers can remain open for haircutting only. All tattooists and nail salons are to shut. 

 

All these regulations will apply when signed by the governor. 

 

That is expected to happen today, notes Thaivisa.

That's not good. My major question is what is going to happen to people staying in a hotel when it closes? Are they going to ensure a few have to stay open to provide these people with a roof over their heads?

Such an overreaction with only 61 cases and thats in the whole of ChonBuri not just Pattaya. Dont forget thats from the start of the problem. Without looking it up there will be some of those 61 who are now recovered.  Wonder where they will put the roadblocks. At each entrance on to the Sukumvidt I presume. Absolute nonsence.

What is going to happen with people staying right outside Pattaya? They are now derived from buying essential items like food, since all supermarkets are inside Pattaya, and the markets are closed.

 

Don't tell us we have to live on 7/11 food

These are proposals, not signed off yet.
Relying on Thai ingenuity, if they close the markets, the vendors can move their stalls to the side of the road and sell from under an umbrella. 1 stall is not a market. How else can Thais ( and most Farangs ) survive without fresh veg ?

Yup, when the proverbial hits the blades, you lot just scamper and scatter. Typical.

Sure, how are they going to do it - with six-foot poles?

 

Overall, 'A' for efforts in trying to tackle the pandemic, but for the sake of all that's holy, please try to use those grey matters and think things through before you start jerking your knees?

So, from Dark Side, can go into City or not?

Can I still go to Immigration?  Have to do 90-day report next week and online app doesn't work for me.

IMO, and with due respect to those self-isolating - the casual attitude to Covid19 shown by many backpackers and irresponsible expats in all major tourist areas is now resulting in an increase of infection rates. It's becoming clear that what goes around comes around. 

 

I hope the message sinks in at last.

Wow. You should be nominated for the opposite of the poster of the year.

 

Of course those 61 never infected anyone.

This addresses the huge difference between the flu and Covid-19. Worth a view:

As I said, the app does not work for me.

My TM6 is from my last entry, which was back in 2011.  I've had a new passport since then and as the Immigration databases appear not to be synchronised, I would need to exit and re-enter before the app would work.

If I try it now, I just get the 'Go to your local Immigration Office' message.

So, hotels don't need to close down then!

 

I think something's lost in translation

What a mess and no sense to some who are not restricted such as hairdressers and swimming still allowed,that's just laughable.

No doubt someone at town hall has a mia noi with a salon, hardly an essential service.

Where to buy food?

Hopefully markets are defined as:  “Flea” markets closed. Primarily secondhand style markets (mentioned in the The Pattaya News).

Will there be food and other essential items being trucked in through the closed boundaries?

Swimming is hardly a risk, most pools are mostly empty. As for barbers, they aren't busy and are spaced out, wear masks and disinfect after every customer and use alcohol gel. You just want everything to close and they lose their businesses and fire everyone

Just go to the Jomtien immigration office I think there is a super short line for 90 day reporting, and if this does not work pay some one in the print shop to do it for you..........Your right online 90 day is a turd....

Correct, changing passports while in the country is an issue when using the online 90-days reporting app. The problem apparently is that the current TM6 (the one filed/submitted during entry in Thailand) is linked to the previous (old) passport number. Only solution is reporting in person or by EMS mail (if available to ones region). And only way to fix this in by exisiting and entering the country with the new passport.
