“Red zone” restrictions tighten, lawsuit over travel information concealment


People who travel from any of the 28 ‘red zone’ provinces and conceal their travel schedule can face up to 2 years in prison and a fine of 40,000 baht, according to the announcement yesterday in the Royal. Gazette. The strengthened measures are aimed at slowing the movement of people from the affected area to other parts of the country and preventing the spread of the virus.

Key measures for the 28 “red zone” provinces announced in the Royal Gazette:

  • People should download the Mor Chana mobile app when traveling.
  • People who intentionally conceal their travel schedule or give false travel information face legal sanction.
  • Complete gambling removal and legal action for government officials proven to be gambling related.

The Royal Gazette also announced tougher measures for travelers to and from the 5 most-at-risk coastal provinces. Only essential travel is allowed to and from Samut Sakhon, Chonburi, Rayong, Chanataburi and Trat. To enter or leave the provinces, travelers must have an authorization document issued by the local authorities.

Other checkpoints are also set up in the 5 provinces. People passing through checkpoints should have their temperature checked and download the Mor Chana tracking app.
