National park in Loei to remain closed until Jan 31
Phu Kradueng National Park in Loei province is extending its closure until January 31 to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Park director Samret Phusaensri said on Friday that it had earlier been closed from January 5 to 18 after the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration reported that about 70 per cent of tourists visiting Phu Kradueng are from provinces in the maximum control zone, also known as red zone, where a high number of infections were found.
“After considering the fact that the outbreak is still active in many provinces, the park has decided to remain shut until January 31 for the safety of tourists and park officials,” said Samret.
“Tourists who have reserved lodging and camping areas in the park can get a refund by contacting tel. 02579 6666 ext. 1743, or email: [email protected]
