Thailand: Malls to reopen 17 May 20 but inbound flights banned until end-Jun 20

  • Shopping malls and restaurants in shopping centres are among the businesses that will be allowed to reopen on 17 May 20, and curfew hours will be shortened by one hour to 11pm. The decision by the government was confirmed by an announcement published on 15 May 20 in the Royal Gazette.
  • Convention centres, wholesale markets and swimming pools will also be allowed to reopen, said Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).
  • Shopping centres will have to close at 8pm, to give people sufficient time to return home in time for the night curfew.
  • The state of emergency is still in effect until 31 May 20 but the curfew will start at 11pm, instead of 10pm, and will run until 4am.
  • Dr Taweesilp said cinemas, amusement parks, boxing stadiums and gymnasiums would remain closed, while fitness centres would be allowed to resume some activities.
  • Meanwhile, Thailand has extended its ban on inbound flights to the end of Jun 20. Exceptions will be made for state or military aircraft, emergency or technical landing, humanitarian aid, medicine and relief flights, repatriation and cargo aircraft.
