Chonburi was among the first provinces in the country to partially lift its lockdown on Tuesday (April 14) as some shops reopened. However, its popular maritime gateway of Koh Loi Pier will remain closed until the Covid-19 crisis is resolved, said provincial governor Phakthon Thianchai.

Ships plying the route to Sichang Island are exempt from the order and still operating.

Shops in malls permitted to open for business from Tuesday (April 14) included banks and finance-related outlets, smartphone repair centres, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants (takeaway service only) and zones selling electrical appliances, kitchenware, computers or construction equipment and related items.

Previously, only the restaurants, supermarkets and pharmacies had been permitted to open under lockdown restrictions.

Policymakers and health chiefs will be monitoring Chonburi closely to see what effect the easing of restrictions has on the local Covid-19 situation, as other provinces prepare to lift their lockdowns.
