well , it is not only with immigration matters Thai people make up their own rules, the face mask are meant for the sick not the healthy , when i went to makro with 2 nieces , everyone was wearing face masks except us 3 ,i was surprised as the Thais are known for their strong heads and not following any rule ,in this case they all follow and they are all wrong..TIT ...it will never change... ;)

Salutary point , wearing a mask outside your home is showing that you have no intention of possible infecting anyone else even if you yourself think you are healthy.
Assists in stopping anyone infecting you ( although science tells us differently )
Is a VISIBLE statement to others where you go or shop that you are taking this seriously .

WHY NOT WEAR when required eh ??

Ok everyone is wearing a mask... Bravo.... Very little, of any, scientific evidences that it does any good.....
EXCEPT creating a false sense of security..... Stay safe and healthy everybody...

There is only one Thai in my village that is wearing a mask , and she wears one all the time , always has .
I know they are hard to find , and some extortionists are making silly money on them , but even if they were readily available , and compulsary would they use them ? Im not so sure , bearing in minb most of them have little respect for rules and regulations .

In our Bannork Buriram village i noted very few wearing masks .. the only ones that were are 2 Mia falang who live nearby and the Pooyaiban wife .. the local locals farmers etc not wearing.. drive 5 mins to small rural town and more mask wearers can be seen but more not wearing than wearing .. back to Udon city and most people are wearing them .. so village town city .. more people head count or others see others wearing them and follow suit to be seen to be taking it seriously whilst not really understanding if the mask is actually assisting them or those around them.

From what i ve seen in the last 2 or 3 days both rural town and city it seems still everything is pretty normal .. lighter traffic yesterday and no check points en route.. last night ring road totally dead near airport from 8pm on wards.

Back to masks .. i would choose to wear one if i venture out the office into a populated area ie town center .. hard to find yes outside bkk ..but fortunately we were sent some up from Bkk.

As echoed by many .. to ALL .. stay safe n takecare just take a look at Italy Spain UK US ..this is serious sh8t and its possible Thailand is in stage 1 and it could go either way.

Our village like many others are making masks
here they are free
some material was supplied by local government
some supplied by local farang me
Everyone that comes to my house wears a mask
Okay wife does local community paper work from home
So maybe they are showing her respect

Back in the Uk now, got out just in time I think, very rarely see a mask. [Redacted]
When I left 3 weeks ago 90% of travellers and all staff at Swampy were wearing them.
Remains to be seen which country's population made the correct decision.

with the crappy AQI in Udon for the last week why would anybody with masks not wear one when out and about?? The air is filthy.. I'll grant the masks used are not N95 and won't be particularly effective against 2.5 micron particles but they will get part of it and that's gotta help your lungs..

Exactely because of the terrible air quality we should use the masks.

If someone has been smoking for 40 or 50 years I hardly think a day or two wearing a mask for bad air quality is gonna have a lot of effect on their lungs

well I never smoked and I've got other lung problems so a mask both for minimal protection from COVID and to get some of the crappy air out of my lungs is necessary..

Perched in my ivory tower overlooking the village people in my soi. Actually only 5 houses including mine nearby, today not much activity but zero mask except for the most likely carrier, the ice cream man. He does 2 visits a day and must come into contact with hundreds during his rounds over the week.

I used to get ice cream off these people then saw them peeing in the fields a few times and come back to their bikes to serve, I never once saw them wash their hands. In fact we see it so often we actually call them pissy fingers ice cream men.
The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.

Unless you're an old-school hand-scooped cornet kinda guy, the ice creams are mostly vacuum packed anyway. As for the money you dig from your pocket to pay for it, I reckon there's more than "pissy fingers ice cream men" have handled that. Think about the "pissy fingered cashier" at Tesco-Lotus or the "pissy fingered dek pump" at the PTT. How about the unfortunate "------ fingered" individual who may have been unexpectedly bum-gun compromised?

I will note that Mrs tam's oldest niece, who works for Big C, has been the most fastidious when it comes to the hand-washing regimen at home. I noted that their cashiers are also wearing the nitrile gloves so that, along with the niece's sudden hand cleanliness, would indicate a solid, corporate push at Big C towards health and hygiene. I doubt it would take much to instill this discipline in a Thai workforce. How many here recall how precise and rote the floor workers at the former Carrefour used to do their little song and dance routine every afternoon at 4 PM?
