With the declining rate of Covid-19 infections in Thailand, the country is becoming more stable and will soon see their livelihoods go back to normal (hopefully). In recent news, the Thailand government is planning to activate the second phase of measures to allow businesses to finally resume operations. According to reports from 8th May 2020, Dr. Suwannachai Wattanayingcharoenchai, Director-General of the Diseases Control Department, chaired a meeting at the department to discuss the upcoming plans to ease the lockdown.

The businesses that will open after the plan is approved, include:

  • Food shops and restaurants
  • Shopping centres
  • Massage places and spas
  • Beauty salons and clinics
  • Fitness centres, indoor stadiums, and gyms
  • Conference rooms in hotels or any organisations
  • Film sets and modelling sets
  • Amusement parks, Water Parks, and Playgrounds

Businesses Will Only Be Allowed To Open After 17 May 2020 If Covid-19 Cases Continue To Decline

In the past few days, the daily number of Covid-19 infections in the country remains under 10 cases and this signals a good chance for the implementation of the second phase to come into effect. The committee at the Diseases Control Department agreed that eight important businesses should reopen soon. However, business owners must take note that this plan will only be implemented on 17th May 2020. Should there be no new clusters and the rate of infections continue to decline, it is certainly looking good for the nation. Be sure to wash your hands and continue to maintain social distancing! Bye for now!
