Dr. Tanarak Plipat, Deputy Director-General, Department of Disease Control has indicated that when the rains come and the temperature drops, the spread of the COVID-19 virus might get worse. Therefore, the public is recommended to maintain hygiene by wearing face masks, washing hands frequently, eating cooked food, using their own food containers, and avoiding crowded areas. The Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health, has suggestions on how the public can deal with COVID in the rainy season. 


  • Wear face masks at all times in public.
  • Wash hands frequently for at least 20-30 seconds with soap and water or hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol.
  • Eat freshly cooked food and bring your own food containers if possible.


  • Avoid physical contact: Do not hold other people’s hands or touch the face, eyes, nose, or mouth.
  •  Avoid using wet masks: If a mask gets wet or damp while you are wearing it, it’s less effective. People are advised to change a face mask any time it becomes wet.
  • Avoid going to crowded areas.
