The Office of the Royal Household has announced the opening of the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Temple to visitors on Nov. 1.
The announcement on the website www.royaloffice.th stated that the agency will take preventive measures against Covid-19 to ensure the safety of all visitors and staff, while everyone is required to wear a face mask at all times in the Grand Palace and surrounding areas.
At each entrance, visitors have to scan the QR code to check in on the Thai Chana tracking platform or put their name, surname and phone number in the visitor log. Alcoholic hand sanitisers will also be available on foot at each entrance.
All public surfaces and restrooms are cleaned and disinfected every 20 minutes, while medical professionals are on standby during business hours to provide medical supplies in the event of an emergency.
Like many tourist attractions in Bangkok, the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Temple are closed to prevent the spread of the Covid19 virus among tourists. The attraction will reopen next month, along with the government’s plan to reopen selected tourist provinces to foreign visitors who have been fully vaccinated and tested negative for the Covid19 virus.
