Several Thai provinces have introduced “soft curfews,” requesting people to stay at home during late night and early morning hours unless travel is absolutely necessary.

The new restrictions are part of additional measures announced by the government, including new zoning and colour-coding of provinces based on the number of Covid infections recorded. The provinces of Bangkok, Chon Buri, Chiang Mai, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, and Samut Prakan, which are all reporting over 100 daily new infections, are classified as dark red, or “highest control” zones, and subject to the toughest restrictions, including a ban on dining-in at restaurants.

A further 45 “red” provinces are subject to “maximum control” measures. In these areas, customers can dine in at restaurants up to 9pm. The sale of alcohol in restaurants is banned across the country.

The TAT has published the following list of provinces that have set soft curfews, requesting that people stay at home during those hours.
