Face mask wearing now voluntary practice in Thailand


Wearing a face mask is voluntary from now after the Royal Gazette published the order late Thursday night.

The order stated that people can now go outside without wearing a mask and live a life that resembles normal conditions.

Everyone can now choose whether to wear a mask outside or not. However, The Ministry of Public Health recommends wearing one, especially in a crowded place or in areas with poor ventilation to reduce the risk of transmission.

The announcement translates that you can walk around public spaces but still need to wear a mask on public transport.

Private property, on the other hand, can apply its own mask-wearing rules such as taxis, shops, as well as airlines.

Thailand is making itself ready for the removal of the Thailand Pass and the US$10,000 insurance for incoming travelers from July 1.
