On January 27, 2021, Assistant to the Labour Minister Mr. Surachai Chaitrakulthong visited high-risk areas in Chonburi to carry out proactive Covid-19 screening in the workplace for insured employees under Section 33. The proactive Covid-19 screening for employees in the workplace follows the Labour Minister’s policy. The occasion provided screening at the Novotel and Koh Si Chang hotels for 200 people.
In Chonburi province, the Sriracha district is a maximum control area with strict measures to fight the pandemic, protection, and control of infectious diseases to prevent spreading to communities, places of work, or major tourist attractions, including restaurants, stores, and shops. In addition, this will alleviate the Ministry of Public Health’s workload in monitoring and investigating diseases, simultaneously boosting the confidence among investors, private companies, tourists, and the public, to have confidence in traveling around Chonburi safely and free from Covid-19. There are proactive Covid-19 screening measures in all dimensions.
The proactive Covid-19 screening today has received good cooperation from workplaces, department stores, shops factories, and hotels in Si Racha and Mueang districts, which is considered to be an integration of collaboration between the Chonburi Provincial Administration, Social Security Office, and hospitals in the entire network, including Phyathai Hospital and Vibharam Laemchabang Hospital, in sending medical teams, nurses and staff to provide proactive Covid-19 screening to insured persons under Section 33.
