I love this place and whole area can get crowded. It's also not really an outdoor area, so I agree. This make sense. I would think all food courts should have the same policy

It makes sense to me as the crowds do gather. Not a bad idea really, pity that Phuket didn't do it earlier.

Any idea why they do not alternatively ask for a proof of vaccination / digital health pass ?

I heard they are starting to do it in Kao San Road

A little more reporting would help a lot!


Will the ATK test kits be sold there?  If so at what price?
Since all customers entering are required to have an ATK test, will all the restaurant employees have the same EVERY day?

Just practical questions ....

I'm supportive, certainly... just curious what the cost would be (1000 baht would be a steep "cover charge"), and if testing positive what then. Are you hauled-off to quarantine or hospital?

If they need one at the Groove zone are they going to ask for one at the food courts?

Seems a bit silly to me, had breakfast on Sundsy morning at Dusit Thani hotel...it was packed. No ATK tests, go to the food courts at any mall outside Sukhumvit it's busier than Groove zone....

 

Let's see how long that rule lasts when customers decide to eat elsewhere....

Or when they require STI test prior to entry to Patpong, Nana and Cowboy! That may be a CCSA requirement to come? Imagine all the tests just to go somewhere …..

Soon, you will need to pay (and wait) for an ATK test to enter any restaurant, mall or entertainment venue.  And if you happen to test positive, you will be taken away by ambulance.  Count most people out.

Vaccinated people also transmit Covid.  Seems logical to require the test for everyone to enter, vaxxed or unvaxxed

Hypocrisy of it all!

My daughter is taking a civil service exam in December ! Vaxers aren’t required to take a covid test but non vaxers are!

Yes, but the idea was to live with it, not to avoid....
