Koh Larn plans to reopen on Monday, June 14, 2021, after being closed for more than a month due to Covid19-related measures.
The island’s Covid19 committee had decided last month to close the island to non-residents from May 5 to May 20.
Then on May 18, 2021, Koh Larn announced through their social media accounts that the City Council that has authority on the island has voted and decided to keep the island closed to non-residents until May 31. This was then extended again until 13 June.
This week, the local Koh Larn committee announced on their social media accounts that the island will reopen to visitors on June 14.
The original announcement said this would happen unless the county made changes or the situation worsened. Chonburi has decided to relax some other restrictions, meaning Koh Larn is likely to continue opening the island to non-residents from Monday 14 June at this point.
Anyone may enter Koh Larn through Covid -19 measurement checkpoints, including temperature checks and use of the Mor Chana Thai check-in platform for contact tracing.
Public transport by boat is also available again according to normal timetables. Speedboats and tour boats are allowed to serve the island and the mainland through checkpoints.
Other activities continue to use the current Chonburi order, meaning bars on the island will remain closed and restaurants will not serve alcohol. However, the beaches are open for relaxation and swimming. If symptoms of Covid19 are found on the island or with timelines related to the island, the Chonburi Provincial Disease Commission and Koh Larn Commission will evaluate the situation at that time.
