Free quarantine stay to be cancelled from July 1


People visiting Thailand or returning home will have to pay for their quarantine, because the government will soon stop supplying free accommodation, the Office of the National Security Council (ONSC) announced on Friday.

General Natapol Nakpanit, ONSC secretary-general, said the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has been eyeing the cancellation of state quarantine facilities since March, as few people are coming from overseas.

He added that the authorities are considering offering a discounted rate for alternative state quarantine.

State quarantine will not be provided from July 1 unless ordered otherwise by the prime minister.
