Pattaya, Banglamung, Chonburi, Thailand –
Officers from the Banglamung police station last night (April 20th) inspected multiple restaurants in Pattaya following an order from the Chonburi Governor to “protect against the potential spread of Covid-19” which includes no alcohol sales allowed for dine-in.
A team of officers led by the Banglamung District Chief Mr. Wutthisak Singhadaechor and the Banglamung Police Chief Colonel Sakchai Suwannukun inspected several restaurants in the Pattaya and Banglamung area.
The inspection was to make sure that restaurants are following the latest Chonburi order which includes ‘No alcohol sales allowed for dine-in. However, there is no ban on takeaway alcohol or purchased from other stores to consume at home. Officers also ensured that other Covid-19 precautions like available hand sanitizer and temperature checks were in place.
Officers stated to Pattaya News that this current order has no set end date and is “until further notice.” They warned that daily inspections would continue and that local Pattaya residents could call 1337 and report any venues violating the current Covid-19 orders. Penalties for restaurants or venues violating the law can be dramatic-up to several years in jail and fines over 100,000 baht which are governed by a current Emergency Decree that gives the government many powers and higher penalties for offenders.
