Chonburi ramps up virus measures - ALL bars and restaurants shut to patrons, alcohol sales BANNED after 6pm

The governor of Chonburi province has ordered all bars and restaurants to be shut immediately for onsite eating and drinking. 

 

Only takeaway from restaurants will be allowed. The province includes Pattaya, previously one of Thailand's premier tourist areas now a ghost town because of the virus.

 

The order - effective immediately - came as a swathe of further restrictions were announced ramping up Phakrathorn Thienchai's response to the Covid-19 situation. 

 

Also closed forthwith are huge tourist attractions namely Sri Racha Tiger Zoo, Nong Nooch Garden and the Four Regions Floating Market. 

 

All privately run childcare facilities are to be shut. 

 

No one is allowed to bring food and alcohol to consume in public areas - reservoirs were mentioned in the order in particular. 

 

All spas and tradition massage are to remain closed until the crisis subsides. 

 

There was some relief for DIY enthusiasts - hardware stores can remain open and sell their products. 

 

Furthermore, the governor has also announced that no alcohol can be sold between 6pm and 6am.

 

This is in addition to Thailand's existing laws that only allows the sale of alcohol between 11am and 2pm and after 5pm.

 

The move to ban the sale of alcohol from 6pm is understood to have been implemented in order to discourage people from gathering in public - which too have also been banned, with group gatherings in parks, beaches and even communal areas of condos now banned.

 

Beaches remain open during the day but social distancing should be practiced. All beaches are out of bounds from 8pm to 6pm.

 

Officials stress there is no curfew in Chonburi, but people are advised to only travel if it is essential.

So exactly how is the food for take away to be ordered?   Are all restaurants going to be required to have a delivery service like Grab or will they use motortaxis?

The article is poorly written.  Originally, the article did not mention that alcohol sales have been banned between 6pm and 6am (the info is there now).

 

As for restaurants, you can go inside to place a take away order, but you cannot sit and eat/drink inside the restaurant. 

 

Another news website says that hotels can still offer sit down dining to registered hotel guests only.
