Governor Phakaphong Tavipatana said the provincial authorities were waiting for a response from CAAT.
The provincial communicable disease committee resolved to ease restrictions on those entering the province via Tha Chatchai checkpoint or through its 24 piers as of June 1.
On May 15, CAAT revoked its decision to allow Phuket Airport to resume operations on May 16, citing the lingering risk of new infections. As per CAAT’s decision, the airport will remain closed until further notice.
