Authorities in Banglamung continue to run overnight checkpoints, according to them, due to a “stay at home” order at night from the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) and the Chonburi Governor.
Leaving your home without permission (such as work like law enforcement or medical) or a medical emergency between 9:00 P.M. to 4:00 A.M. is prohibited. Law enforcement will be out looking for people violating this rule and high fines and possible jail time can be applied for those who break this rule, according to Chonburi officials.
Banglamung authorities have stated that most businesses have closed on time but some gas stations were still opened and a few stations on highways have exceptions to serve essential personnel. Hospital, media, rescue workers, firefighters, some delivery drivers, and law enforcement workers were also allowed to travel during the curfew. For the most part, people stayed at their accommodation and left streets and beaches empty.
Authorities led by the Banglamung District Administrative Chief Officer Mr. Paradon Chainapaphon and the Banglamung Police were running a regular checkpoint in front of the Banglamung police station.
Mr. Paradon told The Pattaya News, “Car and motorbike drivers must show documents to prove that they are allowed on street by the district office during the curfew time with essential reasons.”
“The checkpoint is also to prevent crimes as well as to make sure that people follow curfew rules. We have publicized to make sure that everyone knows we are in a nighttime curfew from between 9:00 P.M. to 4:00 A.M. every day for now. This is until further notice, unfortunately, we don’t have an exact end date, and we know that is difficult for many residents.” Paradon continued.
“We must help to control the spread of the Covid -19 virus as soon as possible. The faster we control the virus, the faster all businesses can reopen and we can return to normal.” Paradon concluded.
