TATs recommendations: Thailands COVID-19 control measures for visitors from affected areas
Posted Mar 5, 2020 19:19 (GMT +7)
Bangkok – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to provide clarification regarding the country’s Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) control measures for visitors from affected areas.
Currently, Thailand does not recommend any travel or trade restrictions against China or other affected areas. Also to date, the Thai government has not made any official announcement regarding self-quarantine for travellers from affected areas (click here to see the list of affected areas as announced by the Ministry of Public Health).
However, the Department of Disease Control has scaled up disease surveillance protocol for visitor arrivals at 46 point of entries including airports, sea ports and ground ports, aimed at safeguarding the public health for both Thais and foreign visitors.
TAT’s recommendations for tourists
Tourists are advised to “travel safely” by practising frequent hand hygiene measures (washing with soap or using alcohol-based gel).
Kindly comply with the primary fever screening at attractions. Travellers showing any signs of the COVID-19 symptoms (fever, coughing, sore throat, runny nose and panting) are subject to further medical evaluation and treatment.
Kindly wear a hygienic mask while travelling, avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms, and avoid visiting crowded places.
If feeling sick, do seek medical care as soon as possible and inform the healthcare worker about the details of your travel history.
