Pattaya Shutdown! Severe restrictions on movement and closure of hotels among new measures as Covid-19 cases rise rapidly




A top level meeting yesterday of the governor of Chonburi, district chiefs, mayors and health personnel decided on a ten point plan that is set to be signed and implemented today. 


The measures will leave any tourists remaining in Pattaya at the whim of hotel owners as to whether they will stay open, notes Thaivisa.


It includes curfew measures, the closure of hotels, restriction on employees leaving the province and the shutdown of Pattaya.


No one will be able to go in and out of the resort unless it is absolutely necessary. 


The meeting heard that infections in Chonburi had rocketed to 61. 


The new measures are:


1. Each district sets up their own taskforce to ensure compliance with the regulations


2. Hotels and places that resemble hotels are to close down and employees are to stay at the hotels and not leave Chonburi to go home. Hotels that still have guests were given three days to decide whether to close down or stay open. 


3. Pattaya will be sealed off. No one will be allowed to go in or out. Checkpoints will decide on special cases. 


4. All beaches in Chonburi are to close to any social gathering but swimming is still allowed. 


5. Gas stations are to close between 10 pm and 5 am.


6. Some markets ordered to close. 


7. People are asked to observe an 11pm to 5 am curfew (if the government announces separate regulations to be followed people must follow the government orders).


8. Certain commercial businesses are to be ordered shut (This vague reference was not explained, notes Thaivisa)


9. There is to be no assemblies at reservoirs. 


10. Male and female hairdressers can remain open for haircutting only. All tattooists and nail salons are to shut. 


All these regulations will apply when signed by the governor. 


That is expected to happen today, notes Thaivisa.

Anyone here in Pattaya on holiday should have left on or before March 17.  Enough said

IMO, and with due respect to those self-isolating - the casual attitude to Covid19 shown by many backpackers and irresponsible expats in all major tourist areas is now resulting in an increase of infe

Such an overreaction with only 61 cases and thats in the whole of ChonBuri not just Pattaya. Dont forget thats from the start of the problem. Without looking it up there will be some of those 61 who a
