“Since April, BMA has ordered all district offices to employ measures at construction sites to prevent the outbreak, which include screening of personnel before entering the area, providing alcohol gel and face masks, cleaning the areas after work, separating personal items and maintaining social distancing practice,” she said.
“To comply with the CCSA, the BMA has sent health officials to perform aggressive tests on construction workers that are at high risk, like those who come from neighbouring countries or provinces.
“We have already tested 49,728 workers, while we aim to increase this number further to ensure safety at all construction sites in Bangkok,” she added.
BMA’s health officials have also coordinated with heads of construction sites to monitor the health status of workers as well as provide advice on sanitary practices within working and residential areas in the site, she said.
