No businesses in Bangkok opening until June 14: CCSA


The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) on Monday rescinded the order to allow some businesses to reopen, saying all must remain shut until June 14.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) had decided to allow five types of businesses in Bangkok to reopen under strict conditions as of Tuesday. Its aim was to ease the burden on business owners affected by the third wave of the outbreak.

The types of businesses set to reopen on Tuesday were:

• Museums, learning centres, science parks, historic sites and art galleries (no group visits allowed)

• Tattoo parlours and nail salons (must close for 14 days if any Covid-19 cases are discovered) • Beauty/weight loss clinics or parlours

• Spa, massage parlour and healthcare-related venues (no steam baths or facial massage allowed)

• Public parks and botanical gardens (no food or picnicking allowed)

Meanwhile, measures to curb the spread of the virus in communities, markets and workers’ camps are continuing, BMA said.
