Interview with Ms. Aileen Chia

Work-from-Home of APT Secretariat

 

Given the emergency situation caused by the resurgence of the COVID-19 situation in Bangkok and many other provinces, the Royal Thai Government has announced several preventive measures on 3 January 2021 aimed at curbing the current and relentless surge of COVID-19 infection in the country. Such measures include inter-provincial travel restrictions, working outside the workplaces, introducing staggered shifts or hours, etc. in order to reduce the number of people travelling for work. 

 

In addition, the Cabinet of Thailand on 5 January 2021 approved the extension of the period of the enforcement of the Declaration of an Emergency Situation in all areas of the Kingdom from 16 January to 28 February 2021 in order to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

 

In light of this and in order to reduce the risk of the staff members of the APT to be exposed to the virus while allowing the regular operations to continue in the best possible way, APT Secretariat implements the partial work-from-home measure starting from 5 to 29 January 2021.

 

During this period, APT Secretariat continues its operation to serve the members. APT members could contact APT Secretariat in regular manner.
