Thailand to reopen bars, allow some foreigners in from July 1
BANGKOK: Thailand will allow pubs and bars to reopen on Wednesday (Jul 1) and plans to let in some foreign travellers after recording five weeks without any community transmission of COVID-19, a government official said.
Pubs, bars and karaoke venues will be able to operate until midnight as long as they follow safety guidelines such as ensuring two metre spaces between tables.
“Alcohol consumption could reduce discipline so there will be close monitoring before customers enter venues,” Taweesin Wisanuyothin, a spokesman for the government’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration, told a briefing on Monday.
Foreigners with work permits, residency and families in Thailand will also be able to enter the country, but will be subject to a 14-day quarantine.
