CCSA spokesperson Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin revealed that the CCSA had prohibited water splashing, concerts or any activities involving close contact between people, such as use of powder paste and foam parties.

However, traditional activities such as religious practices or ceremonies to show respect to the elderly can continue as usual. Inter-provincial travel can continue as normal with proper health practices.
