Koh Larn, an island off the coast of Pattaya, will stay closed to tourists, at least until the end of the month, the Koh Larn Local Committee announced yesterday.

Earlier this month, the island opened to travellers who are vaccinated against the coronavirus, but an order closing the island to non-residents was issued after six Covid-19 cases were reported on the island. The island was set to open tomorrow, but the closure order was extended for another week.

Koh Larn reached herd immunity a couple months ago with 70% of its residents vaccinated against Covid-19. There has been talk of reopening the island to foreign tourists in the near future.

The committee says boat schedules have been added for residents leaving Koh Larn at 7:30am and getting back from Pattaya at 5pm, Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday boat schedules are reserved for people who have official permission.
