From tomorrow we’ll see the resumption of limited dine-in services in restaurants located in the remaining 4 Dark Red zones of Bangkok, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan.

Restaurants in these 4 provinces will now be able to resume dining on premises, until 9pm. But they can only seat 25% of their full capacity. So, a table for 4 can only seat 1 person, while takeaways can still be provided until 11pm. The serving of alcohol in these areas is still prohibited.

Schools and other educational institutions in Dark Red zones also remain prohibited from holding in-person classes and activities in their buildings. Here’s a quick graphic from the Thai Public relations Department…

Thailand's colour zones change from Monday - some restrictions ease | News by ThaigerMeanwhile, Chiang Mai and Chon Buri were removed from the list of Dark Red zones. Currently, there are 17 provinces considered Red zones, where dine-in services are permitted until 11pm, without the serving of alcohol. Phuket was downgraded to an Orange Zone.

Thailand still had no provinces categorised as Green or even Yellow yet, but hopefully, the downward trend continues. The zone layout now is: 4 Dark Red zones, 17 Red zones, 56 Orange zones for 77 provinces total.

  1. Can’t political leaders read ‘REAL TIME DATA’ from other countries to understand that restaurants and schools are NOT the source of Covid spreading. If anything, Covid exposes just how uninformed (politically correct) some elected officials are. Not picking on Thailand as this comment applies to countries across the globe.

  2. Why oh why are the parks all closed? Many were barely used anyway. Oh, I forgot. Covid-19 just kind of hangs there in the air, waiting to jump into your mouth or eyes or stick to your clothing and hands. Just like a tick, I guess. Ah, Science.

  3. Your little Dial o Meter is wrong. It shows the Dark Red as “Low” and Yellow as “high”???

    Perhaps someone can help me please, I live in an Orange Zone can my communal pool be opened please?

  4. Children count as half a person. So two kids at a table for 4. Unless they’re obese. 3 half-persons can sit at a table for 6. Before 8 PM. And only if they haven’t been to a mall in the same day.
