320 close contacts were tested through contact-tracing, and 485 people were tested proactively over the past day. All are waiting for test results. Chonburi Public Health Department officials say that almost all of the new infections are being spread by private gatherings, mostly small groups of 2 to 3 people. They continue to request that people not participate in any activities with anyone outside of their own household and continue to work from home if possible and avoid public places.

Chon Buri is releasing a Covid-19 timeline of a recent market cluster that is seeing 19 cases of the virus so far. The Chonburi Public Health Office is asking those who visited the places listed below, to notify health authorities and monitor their health for Covid symptoms.
