PHUKET: All restaurants in Phuket are now takeaway only and some areas in shopping malls have been ordered to close under the latest order issued by Phuket Govenor Phakaphong Tavipatana.

 

The order, issued at 11pm last night (click here), comes in to effect today (Mar 24) and will remain in effect until at least Mar 31.

 

In announcing the raft of new venue closures (see below), Governor Phakaphong last night said the closures were urgently necessary to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

While in Chanthaburi, Police tells to the owner of restaurant yesterday that can be open with no more than 10 costumers.

It’s clear that with 11 the risk is high danger, while 9......

 

Simply Brilliant!

Phuket shuts all high-risk places

By THE NATION

A meeting of Phuket’s Contagious Diseases Committee has approved a proposal to close all high-risk places in the province from today to March 31 in order to prevent people contracting Covid-19.

 

The places the province is closing are malls, pharmacies, shops, entertainment venues, spas, restaurants, amulet markets, golf clubs, pet-service shops, beauty clinics, barber and tattoo shops, and swimming pools of both government and private organisations.

 

Those who violate the order under the Contagious Disease Act 2015 will be imprisoned for up to one year or fined up to Bt100,000, or both.

Not. I can name one extremely well known, high end, restaurant that is open for normal service as we speak.

Though I live in Phuket, I have several friends with restaurant businesses in Pattaya.   They have been forcibly closed apart from delivery/take away service.   Because a business chooses to ignore directives to close in their own selfish interest doesn't make it any less deplorable, whether that be in Pattaya, Phuket, or anywhere else.   They are not doing anybody any favours for sure.

 

It may also be that the restaurant you're referring to is in a hotel, in which case they are allowed to remain open, but serving hotel resident guests only.

No it's a standalone restaurant owned by a Brit. However his wife came round a few minutes ago and said that he has been ordered to close on the 26th, which he will do. Not going to offer a take out service as it's fine dining and wouldn't be appropriate.

I'm sure, through social media, we are all aware of those business owners who choose to ignore the directive.   I personally put them in the same category of those who strip supdrmarket shelves and deprive others.
