Chonburi the Blue Zone:
The Chonburi Governor has released new orders through their Public Relations Facebook page this evening allowing (December 3rd) alcohol sales and drinks which are now allowed in the Chonburi ‘Blue Zone’ areas including Pattaya and Banglamung.
Chonburi ‘Blue Zones’ are Banglamung, Pattaya including Koh Larn, Si Racha, Koh Sichang, and for Sattahip only in Najomtien and the Bang Saray sub-district.
Only restaurants in the blue zone and with SHA certificates are allowed alcohol sales and drinks inside. Alcohol sales are allowed from 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. and from 5:00 P.M. to 11:00 P.M. These restaurants must clearly show their certificates.
Nightclubs, pubs, bars, karaoke, soapies remain closed.
The order is effective NOW until further notice.
The order had been in place previously for almost eight months but rising pressure from many business owners and sectors helped lift the unpopular ban.
