Officers from the Thai Maritime Enforcement Command Center and related agencies yesterday, March 7th, performed Covid-19 health screenings against five yacht passengers at a temporary detention pier of Ao Po, Phuket.
The AGNES yacht was reportedly traveling from Singapore and arrived at Thailand’s border in the afternoon. All passengers were required to perform a 14-day state quarantine on board in accordance with the health measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 before leaving the watercraft.
Medical officers then carried out the Covid-19 tests using the RT-PCR swab method and installed a tracking wristband (or QR code wristband) on the foreigners to track their traveling history.
According to the officials, they will have their Covid-19 test again after the end of the detention. They will be able to travel in the country if their overall results prove negative for the Covid-19 Coronavirus. This is part of an overall plan to allow “yacht quarantine” for those who wish to come to the country by private yacht.
