Chonburi announces restrictions on entertainment venues

Chonburi Governor, Phakarathorn Tienchai on Monday issued an order which places restrictions on bars, pubs, clubs  and other venues deemed to be high risk.

 

The order was issued after Chonburi health officials reported 22 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, all of which are understood to be linked to the outbreak at an illegal gambling in nearby Rayong. 

 

The Chonburi order states from now until 4 Jan, bars and pubs can remain open until midnight, but they can only serve food and drink and no dancing is permitted. Alcohol is not banned.

 

At all venues, strict screening measures must be in place, which includes registration on the Thai Chana app, hand sanitizer stations, temperature checks and social distancing.

 

For venues such as go-go bars, where dancing is a primary offering, owners are advised to adapt to the new rules or close temporarily. Some nightclubs and go-go bars in Pattaya have already announced plans to close. 

 

The order also calls for the closure of all cockfighting venues.

 

While the majority of large scale New Years Eve activities have been cancelled, events can still go ahead but organisers are required to apply for permission from the District Disease Control Operation Centre.

 

The order issued in Chonburi came just hours after a similar order was issued in Bangkok which will see cockfight venues closed and midnight closures for its bars, nightclubs and music venues until Jan. 4.

If there is a new outbreak of Covid, then closing bars a couple of hours early isn’t going to stop it 

What a shame, i used to enjoy dancing in the bar after a few beers.

Does anyone here use the Thai Chana app?

I have done entering Malls, but it has not been required, some sign a book, others appear to ignore both after the temperature check.

they could produce no epidemic evidence as to why this helped slow the spread.

Couldn't find the Doomsday book and get the numbers from the great plague eh?

I actually thought there currently was a requirement to close at midnight......

I just can talk about Central Pattaya. Bars are open until 3 and longer and nobody cares despite complaints. Will be interesting to watch if this will change now.
