Phuket will go ahead with the annual vegetarian festival from Oct 17-25 with strict disease control measures to be put in place.
Phuket vice governor, Wongsakorn Nunchukan said although there has been no foreign tourists, coming to Phuket so far, the province will still organize the annual vegetarian festival to carry on the tradition and promote local tourism. All activities will be held under the “new normal” measures.
Participants are required to wear coverings at all times.
They must have their body temperature checked when entering the festival and shrines. They are required to register with the Thai Chana tracing app.
Street processions and mass prayers will be held but some activities will be adjusted to maintain social distancing. (TNA)
