One of Bangkok’s trendiest shopping centres, Emquartier, adjacent to the Phrom Phong BTS station, has closed some shops due to the discovery of a Covid-19 infection from one of its customers.

As officials track and trace the infection, they discovered that the shopper had visited a clothing store, a Thai restaurant, a fast food outlet (listed in the media release below). The shopping centre’s management has decided to act immediately on the matter.

  • The Emquartier staff at the affected shops have been sent home and expected to self-quarantine for 14 days
  • Staff who had close contact with the infected customer are being sent to hospitals for observation
  • The affected shops are now shut down for ‘deep cleaning’ and awaiting further instructions from officials

Shopping centre management have stated that the Centre’s customers can expect strict application of the current Covid-19 preventative measures as outlined by the Thai Public Health Ministry.

The original source of the story gave the impression that the entire shopping centre was closed. The shopping centre will be open tomorrow.
