A sub-panel meeting of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) is planning to propose the adjustment of dark-red zone provinces from 29 to 24 provinces and curfew hours from 11:00 PM. to 3:00 AM. at the upcoming general meeting of the CCSA, chaired by the Prime Minister, tomorrow, October 14th.
TPN media notes at this time that all of these items are proposals, and not guaranteed or set in stone to happen.
According to local media, the sub-panel would initially introduce more consideration of Covid-19 relaxations at the next general meeting, including the reorganization of colored zones nationwide such as the highest and strict control area, or dark-red zone provinces, from 29 to 24 provinces, the highest controlled area, or the red zone area, to 29 provinces, and the controlled area, or orange zones, to 24 provinces. Chonburi, home of TPN media, is currently a “dark-red” zone, although based on high levels of Covid-19 and cases it is unlikely that the color code is changed locally.
Moreover, the sub-panel will propose the change of curfew hours from the current 10:00 PM. – 04:00 AM. to 11:00 PM. – 03:00 AM. of the following day, implementing from 16 – 31 October 2021, for dark red provinces.
Some abstained activities will be considered to be operated with a limited number of participants, such as holding meetings and gatherings at exhibition centers, convention halls, exhibition venues, or similar places in shopping malls or hotels.
Other proposals to be discussed include the draft of the country reopening to welcome fully vaccinated tourists from low-risk countries in November, what countries are considered low-risk, as well as the cross-injection of AstraZeneca and Pfizer for Thai citizens. Discussion of the consideration of opening entertainment venues and bars by December 1st is also likely.
The meeting will be hosted and chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha at the government house tomorrow, October 14th. TPN media will provide a full recap of any public decisions made following the meeting.
