Officers from the Royal Thai Navy and the Pattaya health office have inspected the Jet-Ski World Cup 2021 to ensure Covid -19 measurements.
A team of officers led by Captain Nattawut Ngamwongwan, the director of the Chonburi Maritime Enforcement Command Center, and Pattaya Public Health office officials visited the site of the event which is being held under strict Covid-19 precautions.
Yesterday, (April 22nd) they inspected the Jet – Ski World Cup 2021 which is being held at Jomtien Beach in South Pattaya near the Jomtien Night Market until April 25th.
The Six main Covid – 19 measurements that officials were inspecting and communicating were:
- No spectators/fans. The main event and grandstand area are closed to the general public. Only a very limited number of media, athletes, and staff are allowed in this area and must follow Covid-19 measures like face masks and social distancing.
- Three entrances – exits where every athlete, staffer, and media must be checked in terms of their temperature and signing into Covid-19 online tracking applications.
- Ambulances and medical staffers are ready nearby and looking for people who show signs of sickness.
- Social distancing at the event, including on the sidewalks and beaches around the event. This also includes communication with umbrella operators on the beach to ensure they are not allowing people to crowd together.
- Foreign athletes and staffers are all vaccinated and were quarantined for 14 days prior to the event.
- Everyone in the competition must wear face masks at all times, except of course when racing their jet skis.
Officials were reportedly pleased with the execution of the event by organizers and felt that it was being run safely without a risk of the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.
