Fines now apply in 31 provinces for NO MASK

Interior Ministry updates list of provinces where face coverings are mandatory in public places

Thirty-one provinces are now warning their residents to wear masks when they leave home or face a fine.

The update comes as the national Covid-19 case total passed 50,000 on Friday, with authorities warning that a shortage of intensive-care beds was a real possibility if the virus cannot be brought under control.

Authorities said violators could be fined up to 4,000 baht under the Communicable Disease Act if they ignore putting on a mask in public places.

A 37-year-old man was fined by the Surat Thani District Court on Wednesday for failing to wear a protective mask after a prosecutor brought a case against him.

The court halved the financial penalty to 2,000 baht as the defendant confessed to the offence.
