Public Schools in Pattaya planned to open ‘on site’ this November 16th, says Pattaya Mayor

Pattaya –

Public Schools in Pattaya are planned to be open ‘on site’ this November 16th as more than 95 percent of eligible students 12-18 years old have been vaccinated, said the mayor of Pattaya this morning.

Pattaya City Mayor Sonthaya Khunplome told the Pattaya News, “Almost one hundred percent of eligible students in Pattaya, age 12-18, have been vaccinated with double doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. All of these students were given parental consent and nobody was “forced” or “mandated” to take a vaccine.”

“Eleven schools in Pattaya are to be opened ‘on site’ on this November 16th. On November 15th everyone attending schools including students, teachers, and school staffers must take an ATK test. More than 90 percent of the teachers and staff have also received double doses of Covid -19 vaccines.” The Mayor added.

“After schools open on-site, they will have to continue taking ATK Covid -19 tests again, policies will be communicated to parents on these procedures and when.” The Mayor explained

“Most of the students’ parents have received double doses of Covid-19 vaccine too. If any o parents or relatives haven’t received the vaccine, they can easily register with their local municipality to receive the vaccine.” The Mayor concluded.

TPN media notes that the opening is “planned” but not every school in the area may be 100% ready by the 16th. Parents should contact their school of interest for specific information regarding the planned opening and if it will proceed. Many private and international schools have already returned to a class locally, albeit with many Covid-19 rules and restrictions.
