    More public venues in Bangkok face closure

    More public venues in Thailandís capital face closure, from tomorrow until end of April, as the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) tightens the partial lockdown of the city to stem the spread of COVID-19.





    Venues already closed will remain so until the end of April. They include entertainment venues, cinemas, spas, sport venues, public swimming pools, barbers, beauty salons and massage parlours.


    The five additional public places facing closure are pigeon singing competition grounds, childrenís playgrounds, concert venues, theatres, museums and libraries.





    The Disease Control Committee also plans to close conference facilities, snooker halls, private nurseries and beauty clinics.


    Public places exempted from closure include canteens in hospitals, though social distancing must be observed, flowers sellers in markets and government offices in shopping malls, such as post offices and immigration offices.





    Meanwhile, the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) will suspend 22 train services on northern, north-eastern and southern routes, beginning April 1st, due to a sharp drop in passenger numbers using the services.





    For the northern routes, the suspended train services are Train No ĺ Bangkok-Sawankhalok-Bangkok, Train No 13/14 Bangkok-Chiang Mai-Bangkok and Train No 105/106 Bangkok-Sila-art-Bangkok.


    The suspended north-eastern routes are Train No 23/24 Bangkok-Ubon Ratchathani-Bangkok, No 25/26 Bangkok-Nong Khai-Bangkok, No 136 Ubon Ratchathani-Bangkok and 145 Bangkok-Ubon Ratchathani.


    The southern routes are No 31/32 Bangkok-Hat Yai-Bangkok, No 39 Bangkok-Surat Thani, No44 Surat Thani-Bangkok, No 41/42 Bangkok-Yala-Bangkok, No 83/84 Bangkok-Trang-Bangkok and No 173-174 Bangkok-Nakhon Si Thammarat-Bangkok.

    Have they closed condo/public swimming pools? If this thing transmits by touch, any infected person in the pool could contaminate the water for everyone else. Not just close the public ones by order, but also either order or recommend that people do not use private pools.

    Khamtien Market on Sunday mornings. If you’ve ever seen and wondered what the tall posts are in the field behind Tesco Lotus on Superhighway, that’s it.

    my understanding is that public swimming pools have been closed, but not because of the water being contaminated....chlorine would presumably take care of that. but the bathrooms, changing rooms, etc... would be a place for it to be transmitted.
