Koh Larn, Pattaya –
Today (June 14th) is the first day of the reopening for Koh Larn after more than a month of Covid-19 related closures.
The Koh Larn Covid-19 Volunteer Committee last month had decided to close the island to non-residents starting from May 5th until May 20th.
Then, Koh Larn announced on May 18th, 2021, on their social media accounts, that the local council that has authority on the island voted and decided to keep the island closed to non-residents until May 31st. This was then extended again until June 13th.
Last week the local Koh Larn committee announced on their social media accounts that the island will reopen to visitors on June 14th.
This morning saw some tourists return who were visiting Koh Larn at the Bali Hai Pier, although morning showers limited the number of potential visitors.
Tourists and residents are entering and leaving Koh Larn via Covid -19 measurement checkpoints which include temperature checks and usage of the Mor Chana Thai check-in platform for contact tracing. Importantly, passport and/or ID checks are also taking place.
