Phuket prepares to close off every sub-district on April 13, for 14 days. Phuket officials have already ordered the closure of more than 6 sub-districts includes Patong, Kathu, Rawai, Karon, Kata and Pla Klok Districts.

Pakpong Thawiphat, the Phuket Governor has explained in-depth that Phuket will close all the remaining sub-districts from April 13 for 14 days. He stressed that it is not a new curfew as people will still be able to travel within their own district.

The Phuket Communicable Disease Committee have also agreed that the remaining sub-districts should be shut down and all 17 districts will have a screening point along roads into their areas.

The reduction of movement from the locals will allow officials to help prevent further spread of the disease.

The announcement say that you are allowed to leave your house for important errands (including shopping for food and supplies, or medical care) but you must follow the 10pm – 4am curfew and not to travel between the districts. The Communicable Disease Committee Phuket say they hope that the situation would have improved by April 30.

As tomorrow marks the beginning of Phase 3 of the easing of Covid-19 lockdown measures, many catgories of businesses will be allowed to fully reopen, though health and social distancing restrictions will remain in place. Fitness centres, including in malls, are included in that list.

The reopening will include many new rules and regulations designed to stop the potential spread Covid-19. Nearly all gym equipment will be allowed for public use, not just free weights as in Phase 2, but will require disinfecting and sanitising after every use. Previously, some gyms had been allowed to open but permitted only free weight lifting and no other equipment. Gyms in malls were not allowed to reopen in the prior phase.

Masks will be required in gyms and fitness centres at all times.

Large group classes and group activities are still prohibited. Only limited slots in small group sessions and classes are permitted.

Temperature checks and signing in and out through the Thai Chana government tracing app is required. Hand sanitiser must be made available throughout the fitness centre.

Staff have been instructed to strictly limit the number of people entering gyms and fitness centres and to encourage social distancing and discourage socialising and chatting.

Patrons should also bring their own towels, in line with government regulations. Strict rules around lockers and showers will also be in place.

Not every fitness centre will be reopening tomorrow as the decision is made by individual venue management. Your neighbourhood gym may remain closed.

Other categories of businesses being allowed to reopen include fresh markets, pet grooming and pet nurseries, sports stadiums and outdoor sports venues, and no doubt to the relief of many, massage shops. Health and social distancing measures will be in force in all newly reopened venues.
