According to a report on Free Malaysia Today, Thailand will be lifting its nationwide curfew and ease more restrictions on June 15, said Taweesin Wisanuyothin, a spokesman from the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) on Friday, after the country reported no local transmissions of the virus for 18 days.
He also said that the task force has agreed in principle to open the country to foreign visitors by creating a travel bubble program with countries that have also managed to contain the virus although no dates were set for it’s implementation yet.
“The curfew will be lifted effective on June 15 along with the easing of some activities,” Taweesin said, adding that strict social distancing rules still needed to be observed in all public activities.
Schools with less than 120 students, exhibition halls, music concerts, film productions, playgrounds, amusement parks, sports competitions without spectators and sales of alcohol in restaurants will resume next Monday too, however, pubs, bars and karaoke outlets will remain closed, he added.
Travel could be reopened with countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and some Middle East nations, Taweesin said, as well as some neighboring countries.
“The target group is business travelers as well as those wanting medical services and treatment in Thailand,” he said.
However no date has been set on the easing of restrictions on international arrivals which are still banned until the end of June.
