Ayutthaya orders residents to wear masks or face Bt20,000 fine


The province of Ayutthaya on Tuesday (May 5) issued an order that face masks must be worn in public to contain the spread of Covid-19.

Ayutthaya officials have ordered all residents and visitors to wear face masks outside their homes. Those who fail to don masks in public face a fine of up to Bt20,000 under Article 51 of the Communicable Disease Act.

The move to make masks mandatory outside came after some people failed to cooperate with public health advice delivered on April 2.
