No More Masks Outdoors From Today

Following approval by the Cabinet on Tuesday, the CCSA proposal to drop the requirement to wear a mask at all times when outdoors is now official in Thailand after it was published in the Royal Gazette late Thursday.

In certain settings, such as the BTS and crowded indoor areas, masks will still be required at this time with private businesses allowed to implement their own rules as they see fit.

Temperature checks have also been scrapped in the latest round of easing the rules and regulations to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The publication also confirms the Thailand Pass scheme will be axed from July 1 with inbound visitors having to show only proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test.
