Thaiger deals

Numerous businesses and venues in Bangkok will be closed at least until the end of the month. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration extended its closure order on non-essential businesses, places and venues until August 31.

The closure order is in addition to the disease control measures set by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. Under the Emergency Decree, provincial governments can impose measures depending on the local Covid-19 situation.

Bangkok and 28 other provinces are classified by the CCSA as “dark red” zones under maximum and strict control with curfews, travel restrictions and closure orders. The CCSA will review the situation mid-month, but a spokesperson says the restrictions are likely to be in place until the end of the month.

Restrictions imposed by the CCSA for Bangkok, other “dark red” zones

  • No interprovincial public transportation services.
  • Stay at home from 9pm to 4am.
  • Restaurants must only offer takeaway services and must close by 8pm.
