Perhaps important to note that Thailand is the only country in the bottom half of the worldometers table below 86th place that has any size of a problem with new cases. the others are all very small.
Maybe that some countries have not reported yesterday yet, but still stands out.
So most of the others near the same level are now well under control, and Thailand is the odd one out with this second wave coming later for some reason.

As they said at the time, because nearby coastal areas were having a surge of cases and they didn't want it getting to the island.

But we are talking about two days ago and since then no reports of infections that warrant closing an island have been reported is my point.

They decided to close to non residents on 6 Jan when Sri Racha was having it's outbreak.  They haven't decided to reopen, yet.  My guess is they won't reopen until neighboring areas have no cases for quite a while, because they have no current cases and don't want that to change.

Chonburi authorities have banned travel to or from Koh Si Chang after a Covid-19 outbreak in adjoining coastal districts.

The lockdown is effective immediately until the situation is resolved, said Chonburi governor Phakthorn Thianchai, in his capacity as chairman of the provincial Communicable Diseases Committee.

The move comes after the Covid-19 outbreak in neighbouring coastal districts including Sri Racha has continued to spread. To stop transmission of the virus, Koh Si Chang has been completely locked down.

The Chonburi marine department will impose measures for boat operators while the sheriff of Koh Si Chang has been tasked with policing the lockdown.
