    Restrictions could be eased in 32 provinces with no new infections for 2 weeks

    Thirty-two provinces, in which no new infections have been reported in the last fortnight, will be the first where lockdown restrictions will be eased in early May, according to a proposal to be submitted to the CCSA later this week by the Ministry of Public Health.


    Dr. Kamnuan Oengchusak, an advisor to Thailandís public health minister Anutin Charnvirakul, said today that a meeting of doctors, chaired by the Minister, agreed that some restrictions should be eased to allow people to return to work and some businesses to reopen, with the exception of the those arriving from abroad, who will still be subject to 14-quarantine in state facilities.


    Even if some restrictions are relaxed, he said that social distancing and the wearing of face masks outdoors are still a must for everyone.


    The first group of to see lockdown restrictions eased are likely to be:


    Nan
    Kamphaeng Phet
    Phichit
    Sing Buri
    Ang Thong
    Chainat
    Bung Karn
    Trat Ranong
    Chanthaburi
    Phetchabun
    Phrae
    Maha Sarakham
    Muk Dahan
    Yasothon
    Roi-et
    Sukhothai
    Uthai Thani
    Kalasin
    Chaiyaphum
    Nakhon Nayok
    Nakhon Phanom
    Phang-nga
    Sakhon Nakhon
    Satun
    Nong Bua Lamphu
    Amnat Charoen
    Udon Thani
    Phitsanuloke
    Mae Hong Son
    Lop Buri
    Saraburi


    Dr. Kamnuan said that risk factors will be used to determine which businesses can reopen, adding that entertainment venues, like pubs, bars, karaoke halls, massage parlours and boxing stadia, will remain closed. Shopping malls, he said, are classified as medium risk and are required to undertake temperature screening at the entrance, social distancing and promotional activities are banned.


    Public Parks can reopen, but social distancing must be observed, while schools which, are due to reopen in July, must make some seating adjustments, said Dr. Kamnuan.


    38 other provinces, which have reported few new infections in the past two weeks, will be the next to see restrictions relaxed, tentatively in mid-May. They include:


    Chachoengsao
    Pathum Thani
    Chiang Mai
    Narathiwat
    Krabi
    Kanchanaburi
    Khon Kaen
    Chumpon
    Chiang Rai
    Trang
    Tak
    Nakhon Pathom
    Nakhon Ratchasima
    Nakhon Si Thammarat
    Nakhon Sawan
    Buri Ram
    Prachuap Khiri Khan
    Prachin Buri
    Ayutthaya
    Phayao
    Phatthalung
    Phetchaburi
    Rayong
    Ratchaburi
    Lampang
    Lamphun
    Loei
    Si Sa Ket
    Songkhla
    Samut Songkhram
    Samut Sakhon
    Sa Kaeo
    Suphan Buri
    Surat Thani
    Surin
    Nong Khai
    Uttradit
    Ubon Ratchathani


    The last group of seven provinces, including Bangkok, Chon Buri, Nonthaburi, Phuket, Samut Prakan, Pattani and Yala, which have high infection rates, will tentatively see lockdown measures eased in June, but extreme caution must be exercised to prevent a re-emergence of the disease, said Dr. Kamnuan.

    Heard similar from various owners Gary. We'll see Sports bars and Pubs open first that normally rely on local Expat trade, but it'd be a brave Gogo owner who opens the doors before tourists can just jump on a plane and fly in again.

    I did see Chiang Mai has continued the ban on booze sales until the end of the month. Some poor farang was moaning because his local mom and pop won't sell to him but he sees Thais walking out with beer.

    Why that probably is is because the shops are scared that the police will try to stitch them up. So they only sell to trusted clientele who they personally know. The same happened where I live with a friend of my wife. My wife had to go buy their beer.

    1-2 case[s] per every 500,00 - 1,000,000 measured in a week's time frame.

    Only then can we come out to play.

    Try this criteria.

    Thai Citizens,

    Thai Tax payers,

    Non Recent Returnees from foreign countries,

    Positive Test Result from a Thai Government Hospital,

    Under 50 years old,

    Male,

    No established chronic issues

    Brown skin
    ,

    measured in a week's time frame
    FIFY.

    I suspect the current number is zero already. The rest can get themselves out of their problems in the private sector.

    It is interesting, that in the original article it lists 'Gambling Dens', as the type of establishment that may have to wait a little longer before they are allowed to reopen.
