In a Facebook post, the PM said the approval, with conditions, was given because the epidemic situation was at a controllable level, and as people in Bangkok had begun to receive vaccination in large numbers.
The five places that have got the nod are:
▪︎Museums and ancient sites
▪︎Parks and botanical gardens
▪︎Health massage establishments (only foot massage), and
▪︎Nail salons and tattoo shops.
The relaxation will take effect from Monday. The Bangkok authority will issue orders regarding preventive measures for the five types of places to be strictly followed. Those failing to adhere may be ordered to close.
Prayut said the decision was made to balance virus control and the economic situation as many are seeking resumption of their livelihood.
