There has been a warning by the Interior Ministry permanent secretary Chatchai Promlert who has ordered all provincial governors to closely monitor venues that have been allowed to open after the ease on lockdown restrictions and make sure all venues adhere to the rules and regulations in place or they will be faced with an immediate shutdown.
“It has been reported that many establishments have ignored the government’s policy of social distancing as well as regulations related to their business operations,” he said in the order on Monday. “For example, some dine-in restaurants are not providing enough space between persons, or some shops are selling liquor outside the allowed times,” he added.
“Governors must therefore monitor these establishments closely and make sure they do not violate any rules, either general laws or the government’s emergency decree. Task forces should be assembled to perform random checks periodically. Any violator will have their establishment shut down until further notice,” Chatchai warned.
He also added that public relations campaigns have to be organised by governours and local admin offices to teach people how to use the services of these establishments in order not to spread the virus further
