No provinces will be under a mandated nightly curfew starting December 1. The CCSA approved new zoning today, reclassifying several provinces on its colour-coded zoning scale based on Covid-19 infection rates and reopening measures. Under the revised zoning, there are no provinces classified as “dark red” with stay-at-home orders.

Kanchanaburi, Nonthaburi, and Pathum Thani were reclassified as “blue zones,” or pilot tourism areas, which are reopened to travellers entering the country from overseas.
