Thai media reported that confusion was rife in Trang province in southern Thailand after the public and traders thought the ban on selling alcohol had been lifted. 
 
The ban - implemented as part of Covid-19 restrictions on April 8th - was thought to be over at the end of April
 
Shops and the public were wrong. It has actually been extended.
 
Officers and Covid-19 crisis committee members were pictured at a Makro store ordering staff to take beer like Leo off the shelves and into storage.
 
Lots of customers were arriving asking what on earth was going on. 
 
Signage will now explain things.
 
All over Trang province retailers had started selling alcohol again. 
 
In fact the ban has been extended 30 days to the end of May and was never lifted. 
 
People face jail time if they flout the law.
 
77kaoded reported that the governor may lift the regulation mid-month but this only added to the confusion. 
 
Previously it was reported that only the governors of four provinces - Buriram, Pathum Thani, Petchaburi and Phitsanulok - had maintained the ban after the central government lifted it. 
 
Thaivisa notes that many people in Thailand are criticising the authorities for an approach completely lacking in uniformity.
