Thai army confirms US army agrees to abide by Thai anti-virus regulations
The US military delegation, due to visit Thailand on July 9th and 10th, will strictly observe the regulations imposed by the CCSA to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Thailand’s Army Public Relations Centre has announced.
The centre described as groundless reports on social media that the US military delegation, led by Army Chief of Staff General James McConville, has asked for a waving of the regulations.
The requirements include:
– Fit to fly medical certificates
– Doctor’s certificates, issued within 72 hours prior to arrival, stating the holder is free of the virus
– A clear itinerary while in Thailand
– A COVID-19 test upon arrival at the airport
– The delegation will be accompanied by a Thai medical team during their trip to Thailand
– No visits to public places
The six-member military delegation will be the first group of foreigners to officially enter Thailand since the easing of restrictions.
Gen McConville will meet his Thai counterpart, General Apirat Kongsompong, and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha during the visit.
The US delegation has been tested and quarantined for 14 days in the US before the trip and will be tested again in Singapore and at the military air terminal at Don Mueang airport. After visiting Thailand, they will leave for Japan.
