Pattaya City cancels or postpones nearly every City sponsored event through September due to Covid-19 Coronavirus, Songkran still in discussion at national level


Pattaya City Hall held a meeting this afternoon with city leaders and the Mayor and have announced that due to the worldwide outbreak of the novel Covid-19 Coronavirus they have decided to postpone or cancel nearly every City sponsored event through September of 2020. (Full list below)

They also are speaking with organizers of large private events and discussing potential postponement or cancellations as well.

This all comes as part of the direction released from the National Thailand Government to use preventative measures to discourage mass gatherings of people to stop any potential spread of the Covid19 Coronavirus. Pattaya has no cases, city officials reiterated and the cancellations were all preventative.

A notable exception so far is Songkran, as it needs to be further discussed and is in discussions at a national level as it is the biggest holiday of the year in Thailand.

Additionally, should the virus situation subside and come under control events may resume, city officials added.
