Chiang Rai bans those not wearing face masks from entering
Everyone entering Chiang Rai province will have to wear a face mask and undergo screening at checkpoints, according to an order issued by Governor Prajon Pratyakul on Wednesday (April 1).
“This order will apply to all visitors whether on foot, on private vehicles or public transport,” said the announcement.
“Those who cannot provide evidence of being a local resident or having a workplace in Chiang Rai will be denied entry, as well as those who do not wear face masks or refuse to undergo the screening process.”
As for those who are allowed to enter, they must provide their name, address and telephone number to checkpoint officials and strictly follow the guidelines as suggested by Ministry of Public Health, including maintaining the distance of at least one metre between persons and wash their hands regularly, the order said.
Vehicles carrying products or materials for selling or manufacturing in the province are still allowed to enter but they have to undergo the screening process as well.
