Thai Cabinet officially extends emergency decree for another month until end of June


The Thai Cabinet has officially green lighted the proposal from the National Security Council and the CCSA to extend the current emergency decree to control the Covid-19 Coronavirus until the end of June this afternoon.

The Cabinet did not take up the issue of extending or changing the curfew this morning and stated that decisions on any changes in the curfew hours would come after meetings scheduled later this week about further potential loosening of rules and restrictions to re-open businesses.

A meeting is scheduled Wednesday with a special committee tasked to determine what rules to loosen and businesses to reopen. These suggestions will be passed on to the CCSA, the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration, who will make final decisions and announcements. That announcement is expected Friday, May 29.

Once these announcements are made further information on what rules and national direction the decree will have will also be released, including curfew.
