As of today, the freedom of movement of people in the 13 provinces classified as dark red has been severely restricted. According to Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesperson for the State Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), police officers are constantly present at checkpoints.
Motorized vehicles wishing to pass through these checkpoints must present the required documents, including the QR code if they have registered at https://covid-19.in.th.
Freedom of movement for people in the 13 provinces is limited until at least August 2, while those wishing to visit the dark red zones must have a valid reason and be screened upon entry.
