Now that the Covid19 measures are being relaxed in Thailand, having a nice dinner in restaurants is also allowed again
Thailand’s restaurants will be allowed to serve alcohol until midnight from May 1, instead of 11 p.m., the CCSA’s administrative centre for Covid19 control, the CCSA, announced yesterday, as part of the easing of the Covid-19 virus. controls across the country.
CCSA spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin announced the change after the CCSA meeting chaired by Prime Minister Prayut at the government building in Bangkok.
He said the closing time for alcohol consumption in eateries and similar establishments that met disease control standards would be moved from 11 p.m. to midnight across the country.
This would go hand in hand with the CCSA’s decision to redesignate Covid-19 control zones (orange) in 18 provinces as surveillance zones (yellow) from May 1.
The number of yellow zones would then increase from 47 provinces to 65 provinces. The CCSA also decided to increase the number of pilot zones for tourism (blue) from 10 provinces to 12 provinces, adding Songkhla in the south and Rayong in the east, previously orange zones.
The 10 other pilot provinces for tourism are Bangkok, Krabi, Kanchanaburi, Chonburi, Chiang Mai, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Phangnga, Phetchaburi and Phuket. Other provinces will be yellow zones from 1 May.
It is true that the yellow zones limit the number of participants in an activity to 1,000, while blue zones have no restrictions on business and activities.
However, entertainment venues such as pubs, bars and karaoke shops are still not allowed to reopen unless they are adapted to serve as eateries.
The CCSA has also reduced home quarantine for Covid-19 cases and people who have been in close contact with them from seven days to five days, followed by five days for observing their own health and distancing themselves from others.
