As the pandemic rages on in this new year, the tropical nation of Thailand is extending its Emergency Decree until 28 February 2021, in an attempt to contain Covid-19 transmission.

Thailand is best known for its incredible foods, rich cultural heritage and magical beach destinations. The Coronavirus pandemic has surely impacted the Land of Smiles, as it has hundreds of other countries worldwide. As we move into the new year, unfortunately, a resurgence of local transmission has prompted Thailand to take further measures. Earlier this month, The Royal Thai Government has extended its Emergency Decree until 28 February 2021. This is part of the nation’s strategy to control and minimize the local transmission, which had begun to rise again on 17 December 2020.

The Royal Thai Government has also taken other measures to control the infection from spreading, like classifying provinces based on the present risks. This includes various areas such as: maximum controlled areas, highly controlled areas, controlled areas, as well as areas under high surveillance. While international travel may still seem like a far-off dream for most of us today, the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) continuous updates can be taken as an assurance that they are doing the best to manage the situation.

Eat Vacation appreciates this reminder for citizens to keep sticking to health and safety protocols. Wear a mask, practice social distancing and wash hands. Try to limit contact with people outside one’s household or bubble, especially with the more vulnerable population. It has been nearly a year of the pandemic, but don’t lose hope.

For those in Thailand, one could always greet others using a Wai, even 2 meters away. When eating in restaurants and public places, use personal utensils as much as possible. Remember that we are not only protecting ourselves, but the people we love! For the latest updates on the COVID-19 situation in Thailand, please check on https://www.tatnews.org/.
