The overnight curfew will be lifted and restaurants allowed to sell alcohol again on Monday, health officials announced today with details of the next phase of reopening the economy as the coronavirus pandemic fades.
Rather than temporarily suspend the 11pm to 3am curfew as previously announced, the COVID task force today said it would be fully lifted. Restaurants will be allowed to resume sales of alcohol.
Concerts, group exercise and sporting events can resume, with strict limits in place. Parents will be able to send their children to daycare facilities and nurseries once again. However, nightlife venues such as bars, soapy massage parlors and nightclubs must remain closed for now.
Domestic flights may operate again at full capacity, the spokesman said. As for travel into the kingdom, Taweesilp said they are devising plans for allowing travel from cities and countries deemed to have the virus under control.
The state of emergency authorizing these restrictions is in place until at least June 30.
