Health Ministry will not shutdown schools unless cluster emerge


Dr. Sarawut Boonsuk, deputy director-general of the Department of Health, said on Wednesday that the Public Health Ministry will not order schools to shutdown if new Covid-19 infections are found in only a few students.

He made it clear, though, that if clusters emerge in schools, having them closed will be imposed.

The deputy director-general said that a classroom with one or two confirmed infections will be ordered to shut down the class for three days for cleaning. If confirmed cases were found in more than one class, however, the school must shut down the entire grade for three days for cleaning.

“To ensure everyone’s safety, schools may put a halt on all group activities and order students in high-risk groups to take online classes only,” Sarawut said.
