Deputy Mayor Ronakit Ekasingh, along with Pattaya authorities, yesterday, May 1st, organized the installation of a large temporary tent to serve as a health screening checkpoint for incoming visitors in front of Wat Chong Lom of Mueang Chonburi District, Chonburi, in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19 Coronavirus.
The large checkpoint was set up following the CCSA’s new zone restrictions, listing Chonburi as one of the six highest and strictest control areas. The Chonburi Disease Control Committee, therefore, ordered to increase the intensity of disease control measures, including a major health screening point for local residents and visitors.
The checkpoint began its intensive operations today, May 2nd, under the supervision of provincial public health personnel, officials from relevant departments, and medical volunteers for 24 hours a day.
Passengers in all vehicles traveling the inbound lanes will have their temperature checked. Those passengers who were traveling from outside the area will also have their temperature checked and must present a travel permit from local governments to the staff at the Bang Lamung screening checkpoint when it applies.
Officially, those from outside don’t have to have a permit according to the Chonburi government orders, however, local officials may request essential proof that a visit to the area is needed and require a form from ones local government office. The overall message right now is if you don’t need to travel for a critical reason, don’t.
