Chonburi Governor releases new order opening home electronic and appliance stores, provides possible glimpse of future


The Chonburi Governor released several new orders this evening loosening some restrictions and possibly giving a glimpse into the future for the province.

The new orders, which are posted below, state the following in summary:

–The area of the Koh Loi bridge is to be used only for getting on boats not for gatherings or socializing.

-Electronic stores, like computers and electronic devices as well as kitchen appliance stores may reopen. These areas in department stores like Big C may reopen.

-All closure and restriction orders that stretch past the 1st of May are changed to last until April 30th.

-All closure orders will no longer be effective as of May 1st.

The Pattaya News notes there is a lot of discussion online in Thai channels about what exactly this means. It is not a guarantee of re-opening, however, is a hopeful sign for many. It is entirely possible new orders may be issued at or before this date continuing restrictions.

However, by streamlining all closing orders to a single date and making all current orders expire May 1, it does make the overall process to either reopen businesses or institute new streamlined orders easier.
