The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) approved ending the night curfew from June 15.

 

The centre made the decision at its meeting on Friday (June 12). The meeting was presided over by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

 

The 11pm-to-3am curfew will be lifted from next Monday (June 15) but the state of emergency in the country will continue. The centre decided to strictly control travel in and out of Thailand, as most of the Covid-19 patients in recent days were returnees from foreign countries.

 

The CCSA also said that some high-risk activities, such as the use of school buildings or some sports, will be relaxed in the fourth phase of the lockdown relaxation. Sale of alcoholic beverages will be allowed, as well as the holding of concerts. However, bars and pubs will remain closed in this next phase.

 

On Wednesday (June 10), the National Security Council had proposed the lifting of the nationwide night curfew for a 15-day trial period while maintaining the state of emergency.

Great news for restaurants and for many hotels like the one I am staying at which has dropped its room prices 75%. I have seen many examples of beer being served at restaurants in Bangkok in glasses you can't see through. 

Also seating so you can't be seen from the street.

It made no sense to have a national lockdown when most provinces have had no cases for over a month and those provinces prevented in and out provincial travel!

Some good news then. Have to feel sorry for the bar owners and staff though.  18 days without a local case and still they can't open or make any money.

Eighteen days? As far as I can tell, we only ever had six cases, over a three week period here in Samui, and the last one was around 5th April I believe.

Oh...so I can have a drink with my dinner and say cheers to my wife on the other table or behind the plastic- shield!

Some marriages may benefit from such an arrangement due to negative disposition of one party or another.
