According to the Bangkok Post, the Thai government is looking into measures that would allow the reopening of 12 types of businesses and activities – including pubs and concerts, parlors offering soapy massage, and sports competitions.
A spokesperson for the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, Taweesilp Visanuyothin, said on Thursday that the CCSA had invited operators and organizers to discuss measures needed to control the spread of corona-virus disease.
“The government will be hearing from the operators what they would do to prevent disease transmission and we will see how we can cooperate,” Dr Taweesilp said.
Some of the 12 business/activity types were already allowed to resume partial services and officials would discuss measures for the resumption of more services at those premises, he said.
The coming relaxation of restrictions would also apply to bigger film crews, the reopening of classrooms, daily visits to elderly care centers, and national parks.
Dr Taweesilp said measures were also being set down for concert and event halls of more than 20,000 square metres, education-oriented scientific centers, and beaches.
Other business categories included amusement parks, water parks, playgrounds and game shops; meeting rooms for more than 200 participants; pubs, bars and karaoke shops; and bath-sauna-massage parlors, he said.
