Several foreign teachers including Filipinos to teach after strict quarantine


BANGKOK — Opec secretary-general Attapon Truektrong announced yesterday that Thailand is expecting several foreign teachers (more than 3,000) to enter the country to start teaching at private-run schools across the kingdom, and all will be be required to undergo the mandatory Covid-19 quarantine procedure upon arrival.

Stringent safety measures will be enforced, and all are required to cover the alternative state quarantine (ASQ) services, Attapon said, adding that no one will be allowed to teach without passing Covid-19 tests.

Attapon said that on Saturday (Aug 9), 165 teachers from the Philippines landed at Suvarnabhumi airport via AirAsia Flight Z2 8287. They were immediately taken to ASQ facilities in Bangkok and the surrounding provinces.

Despite reports that the Philippines Covid-19 infections continue to rise, Opec assured the public the teachers will be vetted before allowing them to leave ASQ facilities.

There are several foreign teachers including Filipinos who went home before the Covid-19 struck, and have been waiting to return to Thailand to continue their work.
