In a long line of warnings from the Chon Buri Public Health Office, a nightclub in the Si Racha area is the latest to receive an alert for anyone who attended to get tested for Covid-19, this time after New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Chon Buri health officials put out an announcement yesterday calling on anyone who attended Cool Club X in Si Racha Nakhon Soi 2 between December 31 and January 3 to immediately take an antigen test kit at home or report to a nearby hospital or testing facility for a Covid-19 test.

Cool Club X was found to have more than one confirmed Covid-19 infection at the entertainment venue, though there was no mention of if any infections were suspected to be of the fast-spreading Omicron variant which has helped push Chon Buri to the top of the list of daily Covid-19 infections in Thailand.

The warning follows many previous notices in the past few months as Chon Buri officials attempt to quickly identify and contain and potential Covid-19 outbreaks. A few of the recent notifications in the Pattaya area:
