Provinces across the country continue to implement preventative measures against COVID-19, by giving recommendations to the general public on their livelihood, and urging workplaces and factories employing migrant workers to properly register them with the authorities.
Nakhon Nayok has launched a workplace inspection operation in Ongkharak district, where businesses and factories are implementing the preventative measures against COVID-19 well, by temperature screening all employees and asking them to wash their hands prior to work. Physical distancing measures have been instigated at canteens to further reduce the chances of transmission.
The province has urged businesses employing migrant workers to register their workers with the authorities.
In Yala, preventative measures against COVID-19 are being strictly implemented at local markets, such as Prachachuen Food Market, where both merchants and customers must have their temperature taken, check-in on the Thai Chana platform, and use hand sanitizer upon entry.
Everyone inside the market is required to wear a face mask, while hand washing stations are available for customers to use.
Yala is one of the few provinces where recent cases of COVID-19 linked to the new wave have been reported. The provincial public health office is now urging villagers to strictly comply with the preventative measures, as the province has recently found five COVID-19 cases among returnees from Malaysia.
