The Public Health Ministry announced that mandatory face mask wearing will be eased from mid-June. This move will allow people to remove their mask in open spaces — provided they do not have any underlying conditions — except for places that are poorly ventilated or at big social gatherings.
Dr Kiattiphum Wongrajit, the ministry’s permanent secretary, said the current Covid-19 situation keeps getting better and the country is ready to enter the endemic phase as planned.
In a seminar at Diamond Plaza Hotel in Surat Thani, Dr Kiattiphum said that “public health agencies have to carry out social management through a living with Covid-19 scheme, adding that in the middle of June, the ministry will issue new face-mask guidelines.
Face mask wearing, under the new guidelines, will be recommended for at-risk groups, those staying indoors where there is a poor ventilation system, and at large gatherings, he said.
