The Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has agreed last week to provide a Wellness Quarantine (WQ) for foreign tourists from low-risk Covid19 countries who would like to include wellness and health treatments during their 14-day isolation in Thailand.
The Wellness Quarantine is categorized into 3 phases, namely the Medical Spa /Wellness Resort /Spa Resort model, the Long-term Care model, and the Sport model.
The “Medical Spa /Wellness Resort /Spa Resort” model is a 7-to-10-day health program that will be serviced by Thai well-being specialists. The program is added in the 14 days of mandatory quarantine and includes spa, fitness, physiotherapy, nutrition, holistic, beauty, and age prevention for applicants under the scheme.
The “Long-term Care” model is exclusively designed for elderly visitors who can be in the health program provided by the specialists for one month. The model includes physical therapy, brain practice, yoga, meditation, massage, weight loss, stress relief, and exercise.
The “Sport model” initially features the golf program for foreign tourists who, for instance, desire to stay in the Alternative State Quarantine with a golf course. The program is recommended with a 14-day package.
According to the CCSA, this scheme will focus on visitors coming from low-risk Covid-19 countries and territories, including China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Visitors for long-term medical services, who will stay in the country for at least a few months, are among the target visitors for this scheme as well.
CCSA spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin further stated that at least 1,400 potential tourists have shown their interest and have applied for the Wellness Quarantine. They will be strictly monitored under social distancing and health measures under public health officials.
The Wellness Quarantine is one of the new plans being introduced and approved by the CCSA as part of efforts to boost tourism and help stimulate economic activities in Thailand during the Covid-19 pandemic.
