Pattaya mayor requires entertainment venues in the city to test negative for Covid-19 at the entrance

Chonburi province topped the list of areas with the highest number of new cases of Covid-19 and an increase in infections with the new Omicron variant, according to a report by the Thailand Coronavirus Situation Group. More than 700 confirmed cases have been reported in the past three days.

In response, the spa town’s mayor has ordered stricter rules for visiting entertainment venues, namely requiring all staff, visiting musicians and other performers to do a rapid test for the antigen every day before starting work. Visitors to venues must submit a negative test done within the previous 72 hours.

“The authorities will close down all entertainment venues that refuse to comply with the safety recommendations of the city administration as this could spread the virus,” Sontaya Khunplome said.

However, despite the rise in coronavirus and omicron diseases in Chonburi province, the mayor of Pattaya has promised that there will be no lockdown in the city, beaches will remain open and public establishments will remain accessible to the public.
