          EGAT has strictly followed the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 preventive measures. For example, at the tourist information counter, there are temperature scans, while hand sanitizer gel and QR code scanning points of “Thai Chana” platform are provided at major places. In the areas where a crowd of tourists visit, disinfectant is used to clean the places regularly the whole day. For those who visit the EGAT sites, they must wear sanitary mask all the time, maintain social distancing, check the body temperature at the serviced areas, and follow the COVID-19 preventive recommendations by the officers.
