Bangkok off-licence-turned-restaurant passes inspection


Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) officials on Sunday showed up at Ronglaosangjan – an off-licence in Wang Thonglang district that has turned into a restaurant – to ensure it is adhering to Covid-19 prevention measures.

BMA permanent secretary Khajit Chatchavanich said off-licences that are now operating as restaurants must strictly adhere to prevention measures including setting up a screening point and maintaining social distancing.

So far, 317 off-licences have turned into restaurants in Bangkok and Khajit cautioned them against violating regulations.

“For instance, if any restaurant is caught selling booze after 9pm, they will be fined 7,000 baht for the first violation and up to 20,000 baht if they are caught again,” he said. “District directors can immediately shut down restaurants that are caught violating measures.”
