Nan on Friday (April 24) became the first province in Thailand to allow electrical appliance shops in department stores, malls and large retail stores to reopen.
“Nan communicable disease committee decided on April 21 to allow department stores, shopping centres and large retail stores operators to sell electrical appliances since these products are helpful to people,” said Nan Governor Worakitti Sritipakorn.
He added that operators of the reopened facilities must clean the supermarkets regularly and thoroughly, especially frequently touched surfaces, dispose of waste every day, provide soaps, alcohol gel, or disinfectants for staff and customers, and restrict the number of customers inside the store.
“In addition, operators, staff and customers should wear face masks, wash their hands, and have their body temperature taken before entering the store,” he said.
Nan is regularly highlighted by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration for being one of nine provinces with no confirmed Covid-19 cases since the beginning of the epidemic in Thailand.
