Officials at Pattaya City Hall have provided Thaivisa with a detailed explanation of the regulations regarding the opening of restaurants in Pattaya amid the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

 

“Due to many announcements, both central and Chonburi Province. The City of Pattaya would like to help summarize the order in language for everyone to understand easily, as follows.

 

The restaurant business will be divided into 2 types.

 

1. Restaurants in the mall can only be opened to sell food to consume somewhere else (can't sit in the shop)....... according to the order of COVID19 committee, Chonburi province

 

2. Ordinary restaurants outside the mall:

 

- can be opened but on condition that you reduce the risk of spreading, as follows:

1. Customer temperature screening before entering the premises.

2. Alcohol is placed at a common point.

3. Reduce congestion by organizing the customer seating at least 1 meters apart.

4. Surface cleaning eg door knob handle, toilets.

5. The staff of the restaurant to wear hygienic masks

 

What is permitted:

 

Open-closing time (26 Mar. July 63) there is no fixed opening-closing time (but if it's open until 00.01 pm an officer may check if alcoholic beverage have stopped being sold)

 

Alcoholic beverages can only be sold only in restaurants licensed to sell alcoholic beverages, and only for the scheduled times of 11.00. am - 14.00 pm, and from 17.00-24.00 pm. Outside these hours the officer will take action.

 

Caution:

 

The business cannot be opened with a food license not yet granted. It is a bar, not a restaurant and cannot be opened according to the order of the COVID-19 committee, Chonburi province

 

Establishments that look similar to bars cannot be opened, according to the order of the COVID-19 committee, Chonburi province

 

The restaurant must look like a real restaurant, not a bar. For example, if any premises has music or live music, it is considered as a bar according to COVID-19 Committee, Chonburi province

 

The important thing is that you must ensure that your shop is a real restaurant, not a bar, or similar that looks like a bar. Because under these regulations, if you are arrested, you will not only be arrested for selling alcohol, but will be arrested for disobeying the order of the COVID-19 Committee, with a fine of 100,000 baht or imprisonment no more than 1 year, or both. The fine and bail of 100,000 baht!

Does that mean everyone has to use straws to drink out of the same bottle placed at a common point?

Yes, I know that will ensure everyone has the best chance of contracting Covid-19 - but what does #2 really mean?

Answers on a virus-free postcard, written with a virus-free pen please.

Isn't #2 about hand sanitiser?

Oh bugga me, you could perhaps be right there. That never occurred to me it might be sanitisers and not beer, etc.

Why can't they write 'sanitisers' then, if that's what they mean?

For goodness sake, I suppose asking a native English speaker to read it first would be a loss of face.

Still, better not to ask and not make it clear I suppose.

To be honest i am surprised as people can go there an drink in the evening as if it were a bar,okay all you have to do is have a bowl of appetizers and say oh we will eat later,better if they just make them take aways.

Foolish. 

 

The restaurants must be forced to close for dining in, and allow for take away only.   

 

Decisions like this will just result in more cases of transmission, eventually leading to full shutdown.  Better to move to full shutdown now.

Clear to me, which parts didn't you understand?

Clear to me as well 👍

 

Maybe it's not clear to those that still want to frequent a pseudo-restaurant and consume vast amounts of alcohol on which so may TV pundits rely on
