Apinya Sujarittanan, director-general of the department, said that many businesses had not put in place preventive measures to control the spread of the virus.
“The language is partly a problem for migrant workers to understand what needs to be done in line with the government’s measures,” he said.
The team of officials explained the measures to the migrant workers and also provided them with written guidelines in different languages.
In the effort, migrant workers have been explained the importance of maintaining social distancing, staying away from gatherings and observing the curfew, Apinya said.
