The third phase of lockdown easing is expected to take effect from June 1.
NSC secretary-general General Somsak Rungsita said he can’t say right now what types of businesses will be allowed to reopen next month as information to do with both health and the economy needs to first be considered.
He also said some are concerned about an increased risk of Covid-19 because the businesses that will be allowed to reopen in the third phase face higher risks than others, plus the rainy season has arrived in Thailand.
The council will also conclude on Wednesday whether the 11pm-4am curfew should be unchanged or its hours reduced – from midnight to 4am – before this is also proposed to the CCSA on Friday.
