Culture Minister Ittipol Khunpluem revealed today (July 12) that the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) had decided to scrap plans to move the postponed three-day Songkran holiday to July.

“The panel now aims to compensate people with one day of holiday per month over three months, near the weekend, not six consecutive days of holiday [as before],” said the minister, adding that plan would be firmed up later.

Ittipol initially proposed June 2 as a Songkran substitute holiday, but Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said the CCSA needed to monitor the virus situation and capacity of medical personnel to deal with unforeseen events after months of battling the virus.
