A new set of measures has been announced is response to a surge in Coronavirus cases now up to about 750 news cases in the last day. The new restrictions cover 28 provinces including chonburi, and therefore cover Pattaya too.
The measures include
restrictions on cross provincial travel, the closure of schools and educational institutions and a ban on serving alcohol in restaurants. Buildings or premises that are deemed high risk of spreading the virus, such as fitness centres or spas, will also
have to close.
People who live in the 28 provinces now deemed 'red zones' are advised to not travel to other provinces unless absolutely necessary. Anyone travelling across provinces must show proof of why they are travelling.
Bars and pubs
are ordered to close, restaurants can remain open but are not allowed to serve alcohol.
Businesses must tell staff to work from home, where possible, alternatively they can ask staff to work staggered hours or alternative days.
measures also give provincial governors the power to impose their own restrictions and can close any premises or businesses that they deem necessary to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Shopping malls, markets, supermarkets and community malls
can remain open but strict screening and disease control measures must be in place.
