Bangkok city officials are loosening restrictions in the capital and are allowing 5 types of venues to reopen tomorrow (May 1) while other venues under the closure order must remain closed at least until June 14.

Bangkok remains the epicentre of infections with 1,356 cases reported today and 41,573 infections over the past couple months in the latest wave of Covid-19 sweeping through the country. Most of the recent infections have been concentrated in crowded areas such as construction camps, prisons, markets, and settlements.

Business, venues and places allowed to reopen include…

  • Museums, learning centres, science parks, historic sites and art galleries can reopen, but no large group visits are allowed.
  • Tattoo parlours and nail salons can reopen, but if a new Covid-19 case is linked to the venues, then the business must close for 14 days.
  • Beauty or weight loss clinics and parlours can reopen.
  • Spa, massage parlours and healthcare-related venues can reopen, but no steam baths or facial massages are allowed at this time.
  • Public parks, botanical and flower gardens can reopen to the public, but no large gatherings are allowed.
