Chon Buri officially became a deep red zone according to a government zoning program based on Covid-19 cases, which brings additional restrictions for at least 2 weeks, like the closure of dine-in at restaurants.

Chon Buri Public Health officials say a sharp increase of cases being traced from family members and home gatherings are being found, warning residents that the majority of cases are now from homes and not businesses. They say that the vast majority of cases are asymptomatic and many people did not know they were infected.
