With the reopening of these venues, Covid-19 preventive measures will still be implemented strictly at these venues, like the following:

  • A sufficient ventilation system, with the capacity of at least 10ACH, will be installed and must be turned on during operating hours.
  • Everyone is required to check-in and out via the Thai Chana application system.
  • Every business owner is required to put up clear notifications of the number of customers that are allowed to enter – customer per 4 square metres
  • Temperature checks must be done at every entrance based on CCSA (Centre of Covid-19 Association) policies.

A new dawn is coming

Even though the cases keep spiking, venues that are slowly opening again bring new hope to many. This is definitely good news about the Nation’s progress towards combating Covid-19.

By following these measures, the spread will definitely decrease and people will be at ease.
