Flout the mask rule for a 3rd time in public and you will be fined up to THB20,000


People who do not wear masks in public may face up to a THB20,000 fine if they are caught breaking the rule for the third time, according to an announcement by the National Communicable Disease Committee published in the Royal Gazette.

Flout the mask rule for a 3rd time in public and you will be fined up to THB20,000

The move aims to ensure all people wear face masks in public to reduce the risk of contracting Covid-19.

The announcement will be suspended once the Covid-19 crisis is resolved or the state of emergency lifted.

Under the Communicable Diseases Act BE 2558 (2015), people who do not wear a face mask in public areas may face punishment as follows:

1. No more than a THB1,000 fine for the first time.

2. Over THB1,000, but no more than a THB10,000 fine for the second time.

3. Over THB10,000, but no more than a THB20,000 fine for the third time.

In case the suspects do not agree with the punishment or fail to pay the fine within 30 days after being charged, communicable disease officers can submit the issue to investigation officers for legal action.

If there is repeated wrongdoing or wrongdoing by any person that may affect public safety, communicable disease officers can submit this issue too to investigation officers for legal action.
