After finding out that several migrant students and their guardians visited their country by crossing the natural borders, two schools in Hua Hin district of Prachuap Khiri Khan province were ordered to cancel classes for a week.
Governor Pallop Singhaseni on Tuesday (September 1) instructed Anun School and Wang Ta Krai School to close until September 7.
Anun School has 576 students, of which 300 are migrants, while Wang Ta Krai School’s 310 students include 45 migrants.
After some Anun School students did not show up in class due to high fever, officials looked into their case and learned that their parents or relatives had recently returned from Thailand-Myanmar border areas. The children will need to spend 14 days quarantine under the supervision of health volunteers before returning to school, The Nation said in its report.
Although Wang Ta Krai School has not reported any suspicious infections, it decided to close just to make sure.
Health inspectors from the Public Health Ministry and personnel from Hua Hin Hospital have taken fluid samples from people potentially at risk to test for Covid-19 and results will be released in a day, The Nation added.
