COVID-19 Announcement: SEAMEO SPAFA’s Response and Strategy

In light of (1) the decision made on 17 March 2020 by the Royal Thai Government concerning the COVID-19 pandemic to implement measures limiting mass gatherings, and (2) the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s announcement on 21 March 2020 of temporary closure of 26 categories of places from 22 March to 12 April 2020, SEAMEO SPAFA office and library will be closed to public and staff will work from home from  23 March until 17 April 2020, with the assumption that the COVID-19 situation would have subsided by then. This is to minimize the chances of COVID-19 transmission.
