No curfews, but then there is nothing now open Between 11pm and 4am, so why would anyone really be out and about.  No gatherings, no bars, no late night munchies, so in essence a pseudo curfew.  This

 are they not a convenience store?  According to the list and what I heard, nothing after 11pm is to be opened.  Restaurants can stay open to 9 for dining in and then until 11pm for those food delivery riders to pick-up and deliver.

Travel appears to be allowed but they would prefer folks to stay where they are.  Wonder how you get gas if your traveling between 11pm and 4am.

There is no mention currently that they will be closed

Bangkok Airways will close its ticketing offices in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket from April 16-25 due to the current COVID-19 crisis and the situation is expected to intensify.
 
The airline said its office-based employees will be allowed to work from home for the time being, but its front-line employees dealing with ground passenger services and in-flight passenger services, as well as operating system staff will strictly follow the precautionary and prevention protocols.
 
These employees will be required to wear surgical face masks, gloves and face shields and are requested to wash their hands frequently as well as limit their travel to high risk areas.
 
 
 

So flights are still allowed.  With no provincial border restrictions I wonder how many will continue to travel for the school break holidays.  Our trip to Chonburi has now been canceled since we can not hit the amusement park, the dinosaur park or even Nong Nooch gardens.  Oh well, next school break, maybe.

"No national curfew but provincial governors now have the power to declare by themselves. But with 7-11 and restaurants closing at 11pm, and travel discouraged, it is virtually a curfew anyway. Just not in name."

Yes a Pseudo Curfew.  Gas stations are the other issue as many have convenience stores attached to them, and this would create a travel dilemma for those who travel at night like we do starting at midnight for most trips.  Only have to avoid the drunks and trucks with no rear lights is all.

"

“There is no curfew and this is not a lockdown yet,” Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha said in a televised address to the nation. “We sympathize with businesses that will be affected.”

 

“Closing everything down is easy but many people will be in trouble and there will be more officials on the ground and that could lead to the spread of the virus as well,” he said."

Massage shops...I like me a good kneading once a week?

If your area is like mine in central Bangkok there will be many, esp. down little side streets with no lights on but the doors ajar, that will be ecstatic to see you-but can we relax for a massage knowing what we're risking?

Relieving stress is what it is all about, isn't it ?

Just to be clear, they're talking about the new restrictions taking effect at the end of Sat. night (midnight) going into early Sunday morning.

 

Travel outside between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. is not banned, but government says it's strongly discouraged...

 

Regarding the nationwide closure of all schools and education institutions, government says that applies to in-person class learning, but doesn't apply to remote individual instruction.

 

Government says for now they have a sufficient supply of hospital and alternate hospital beds to meet the need in the BKK metropolitan area. Says they have prepared some 8,000 hospital and various alternate hospital beds in the BKK region.
