CCSA eyes easing restrictions on red-zone provinces


The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) is considering easing restrictions on provinces under strict control soon and will release a new list of guidelines on Saturday.

CCSA spokesman Taweesin Visanuyothin said the easing of restrictions will be considered based on several factors, such as outbreak characteristics, terrain, the number of people at risk of spreading the virus, and the number of vaccinated persons.

CCSA may make the following changes:

Restaurants

Maximum and strict controlled areas: A limited number of people will be allowed to dine in until 9pm and takeaways allowed until 11pm.

Maximum controlled areas: People can dine in until 11pm.

Controlled areas: Open as usual.

Sale of alcoholic beverages is still not allowed.

Schools and Tutoring Centres

Maximum controlled areas: Students allowed to attend class provided the school has received approval from relevant Provincial Public Health Offices.

Controlled areas: Classes can be held as normal, but schools must comply with measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.
