Cabinet disagrees with the cancellation of Thai public holidays in May


Yesterday, PM Prayut Chan-o-cha chaired a meeting with the Coronary Centre for Disease Infection Management 2019 (Covid-19) at Santi Maitri building behind Government House. One of the matters discussed was the postponement of national holidays. The matter was going to be presented to today’s cabinet meeting.

The holidays that were going to be cancelled or postponed included…

  • Friday, May 1, 2020, Labour Day,
  • Monday 4 May 2020, Coronation Day,
  • Wednesday 6 May 2020, Visakha Puja Day,
  • May 11, Plowing Day.

But today’s cabinet meeting said they ‘disapprove’ of the postponement or cancellation of the Thai national holidays in May.

But a spokesperson for the Cabinet told the public to stay at home and refrain from travelling out of their provinces, fearing that they may take extended leave, from May 1-6, to vacation upcountry and celebrate the holidays.
