The wearing of face masks is now mandatory in all Thai provinces, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) announced on Thursday.

 

The mandatory wearing of face masks applies to both indoor and outdoor public spaces.

 

Earlier this week as many as 40 provinces had announced that they had made face mask mandatory. By Tuesday this was then extended to 63 provinces.

On Thursday, following the announcement of further restrictions, it was also announced that facemasks are now mandatory in all 77 provinces in Thailand. 

 

The maximum fine for failing to wear a face mask when out in public is 20,000THB.

 

Police have said fines will be issued as per the following:

 

1st fine:  6,000 THB

2nd fine:  12,000 THB

3rd fine:  20,000 THB

I wonder if all the provinces are following a standard (CCSA?) format for their regulations?

 

I keep asking about cycling (and running) and whether a face mask has to be worn?

Is there anyone who has a definite answer to this? If so is there somewhere the relevant section is available in Thai and English?

 

So far, I have (eventually) only managed to find the Phuket English regulations. I hope the image below is clear.

If you only cycle and run inside your home, you don´t have to wear a face mask.

A good answer.

My only problem is having to slow down dramatically when cycling between the shower door and the corner of the bed.

Everyone has been wearing masks for the last year. I have not seen anyone outside anywhere in Bkk for a whole year without a mask. So that is not the problem. Look at what happened in the beaches during the Songkran week... NO masks.. all drinking and all clustered far worse than any bars that were forced to close.

My exact question as I plan to resume running next week in CM as having just healed from an arm accident.

It would be wise to now include the mandatory wearing of safety helmets for motorcyclists in this edict. Same fines and enforcement and see the effect on road deaths.  (Sound of snoring)

There is absolutely no scientific evidence that wearing a mask outdoors is necessary or helpful to the wearer or others. Wearing one whilst driving a scooter with no helmet is the height of folly. One practice is silly, the other regularly fatal in dear old Siam.

Just cut a hole for your mouth. Nobody is going to chase you to have a look.

I've read that also in the car, if there's more than one person, the face mask must be worn, also if the other person in the car is a family member so, my question is, when I sleep with my wife I have to wear the mask? ... when I watch TV on the sofa with my wide, do I have to wear the mask? ... Only two things are infinite, the universe and the human stupidity and I'm not sure about the former (A. Einstein)

I usually jog on the deserted rural alleys around the village where I live, which is 6 km. from the city. During the run I never wore a face mask. I don't think orderliness holds true in my case.

Lets look at this circus:


-Wear masks……………….the virus spreads
-Wear triple masks……..the virus spreads
-Designer masks………….virus spreads
-Plastic shields……….same old same old
-Social distance……..the virus spreads
-Lock down………….the virus spreads
-Vaccine………still spreading
-Booster shots………….to avoid more spreading
-Mutant virus from Britain………..???
-Mutant virus from Africa………??
– A new vaccine needed??
-A new booster shot needed ??
-Another lockdown…………….!!!!

 

The show must go on and we wonder WHAT NEXT ! Perhaps a “new” virus and accompanying vaccine and booster. Plastic overalls and hermetically sealed space helmets with oxygen tanks ?? You have to give the credit to the few who play games with the many.

What a charade !

Are you sure?

 

I just Googled "Science Behind How Face Masks Prevent Coronavirus" and got About 333,000,000 results (0.62 seconds).

 

Suggest you try it sometime too.

 

Stay safe bro.

I went out for a walk this morning at 6.30am. beach road Pattaya.

 

I saw many Thais not wearing a mask. Every farang I saw was wearing a mask.

 

The Thais just do not care, until they catch it that is!!

Does it matter what kind of mask you wear? Some of these masks are paper thin and offer little or no protection to other people. I almost forgot will there be mask police paid on a commission?

Why not take self responsibility and wear one anyway ?

I've quoted this a few times on TVF over the months:

 

When we had the first 'lockdown' last year and face masks were being pushed to be worn in public.

At that time there was a senior government doctor (not Anutin I hasten to add, he' s not even a doctor) who specifically said that you must not wear a mask when exercising, as a mask will restrict the increased free flow of air into your lungs, restricting your breathing.

Thai’s may now have a bit of sympathy for their spouses upon wearing a mask for a few hours after a big feed of Pla ra ( fermented fish ) 🥴
