The emergency decree was officially extended by the Thai Government today until the end of May along with some other restrictions that will be maintained.
Among the restrictions being extended is the nationwide night curfew between 10 pm and 4 am. People must still remain home during these hours and businesses and shops must close.
So far, an average of almost 1,000 people per night has been caught breaking the curfew rules.
In addition, inter-provincial travel remains severely restricted. People are advised against traveling to another province without good reason. Any plans to travel must be postponed or canceled.
The cabinet has banned inbound international flights to Thailand until May 31st and will closely monitor inbound traffic by land and sea.
However, there has also been some leniency shown with the extended emergency decree. Provincial governors will be granted authority to reopen some businesses and services if they feel there is a reduced risk of spreading coronavirus.
If disease control measures prove successful and there are no new covid-19 cases in a province, relaxation of restrictions can be expanded.
However, if new coronavirus cases are found, any relaxation of the restrictions will be terminated immediately.
