No-mask fines across Thailand


The Thai Government seems to be releasing new regulations on the daily to help curb the spread of Covid-19 – less than a week ago, many provinces imposed fines up to ฿20,000 for individuals not wearing a mask in public spaces.

From 29th April 2021, people throughout the entire Kingdom will be fined for going outside without a mask.


Masks are compulsory for all


Yesterday, the Royal Thai Government posted on their Public Relations Facebook page that from 4.30PM on 29th April 2021, those who are seen without a mask outside of their homes can will receive a fine up to ฿20,000.

The post detailed that the rule applies to both indoor and outdoor public spaces.


Stay tuned for updates


With Covid-19 case numbers continuing to rise by four digits daily, it’s only a matter of time before the government responds with more safety measures.
