Guests do not need to be vaccinated to visit restaurants

Bangkok Governor Aswin Kwanmuang told media that conditions for opening restaurants in the Thai capital are more lenient than initially announced.

He said that from September 1 to 30, it will not be necessary for diners to dine in restaurants to be vaccinated. Also, the staff does not have to take an ATK test every 7 days.

These measures were considered problematic when they came up, as only about 10% of Thailand’s population is doubly vaccinated, and restaurants complained that mandatory ATK testing would eat into their already ruined profits, a Thai newspaper notes.

Aswin said that at the proposed opening from Wednesday it will be mandatory to wear masks, carry out temperature checks and will be back from Wednesday to wear masks and observe 2 meters of social distancing, Channel 7 reported.

These measures are now known to everyone. He said that where the social distancing of 2 meters could not be guaranteed, screens and barriers should be placed.

Schools will also be allowed to open without restrictions from Wednesday, allowing teaching, training and testing for large groups.

It remains to be seen what protocols will be in place at each school and how many will reopen, but the CCSA’s surprising decision will be an overwhelmingly welcome relief for parents who have had their children home since Songkran.

In addition, the beauty salons, barbershops and health massages can also open again, where only foot massage can be given at the latter.

Restaurants are allowed to remain open until 8 p.m., as are shopping centres and malls.
