Tight restrictions limiting travel and ordering residents to stay at home are being set in Bangkok and 9 other “dark red” provinces to control the spread of Covid-19 as the Delta variant of the virus becomes more prevalent.  Many have been calling it a “lockdown,” but the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration has been avoiding the word to describe the disease control measures.

The CCSA also revised the colour-coded zoning which classifies provinces based on the local Covid-19 situation. (See the list of zoning below)

Dark red provinces

Bangkok, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Nakhon Pathom, Samut Sakhon, Samut Prakan, Yala, Narathiwat, Pattani, Songkhla

Starting Monday… 

  • Stay at home from 9pm to 4am. Only leave for essential reasons.
  • Avoid gatherings larger than 5 people.
  • Avoid making unnecessary trips.

Starting tomorrow…

  • Relevant authorities will impose stricter regulations and set up checkpoints to limit the number of people travelling from dark red provinces.

Bangkok metropolitan area

Bangkok, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Nakhon Pathom, Samut Sakhon, Samut Prakan

Starting Monday… 

  • Restaurants, markets, and convenience stores must close from 8pm to 4am.
  • Public transportation must stop services from 9pm to 4am.
  • Spas, beauty centres, and massage parlours must close.
  • Public parks must close at 8pm.
  • Work from home at the maximum capacity. (The public sector will strictly follow the order, the private sector is asked to do the same.)
  • Shopping centres must close with the expectation of supermarkets, take-out restaurants, banks and financial institutions, pharmacies, mobile phone repair and retail stores as well as vaccination centres located at malls. Those businesses must close at 8pm.
