The NSC secretary-general said authorities are still working on the possibility of allowing clubs and bars to open. However, this issue requires careful consideration as the likelihood of transmission of the Covid19 virus in these locations is high.
The government’s Covid19 task force is expected to consider further easing disease control measures for next month’s Songkran festival, with only traditional activities allowed this year.
General Supoj Malaniyom, secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC), said the government’s Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) will consider the proposed easing of measures in a full panel meeting.
For the Songkran festival, the Ministry of Health has issued guidelines for safe celebrations that allow for traditional practices at home and in religious places.
Local authorities will be involved in adhering to disease control measures during the festival and in designating specific zones.
