The Thai Government has announced details of the fourth phase for easing lockdown restrictions, due to begin on Monday, June 15th.
Most businesses and venues will be permitted to open again, except for entertainment venues and wet massage houses.
Despite proposals from business owners in the industry detailing how they will ensure proper hygienic and social distancing measures, they were deemed “too risky” to open just yet.
However, the night curfew between 11 pm and 3 am will be lifted for a 15-day trial period from Monday.
Also, a host of restrictions have been eased, including:
Domestic flights may now operate at full capacity. Other transportation, including buses, vans, and trains, may resume regular services with vehicle capacity capped at 70 percent.
International and tutor schools with fewer than 120 people may open again. Other schools will open again on July 1st.
Exhibition halls, meeting rooms, science centers, arcades, film sets with a maximum of 150 people, daycare, and elderly care centers may all reopen.
Steams, spas, and onsens can open again. Wet massage houses must remain closed.
Group exercising in parks and fitness centers can resume with a maximum of 50 people.
Water parks, swimming pools, and amusement parks can open again with social distancing in place. Ball pits and inflatable castles remain off-limits.
Sports stadiums can open again for competition and contact sports, but cannot have spectators.
Alcohol may be served in restaurants, hotels, food courts, and other related venues. However, bars, pubs, and karaoke venues are to remain closed.
