Seven districts in Nakhon Ratchasima to allow drinking in qualified restaurants

Nakhon Ratchasima –

Nakhon Ratchasima’s provincial communicable disease committee has approved, in principle, the reopening of allowing alcohol selling and drinking at qualified restaurants in seven districts in the province.

The districts will be added as tourism pilot areas or the “Blue Zone”, namely Mueang, Pak Chong, Chalermprakiat, Chokchai, Sikhio, Wang Nam Khiao, and Phimai.

Deputy governor Chusak Chunkoh revealed after a meeting with the Communicable Disease Committee that the seven districts would allow local restaurants to serve alcoholic beverages until 10:00 PM. However, only restaurants qualified under the SHA+ standards were allowed to do so.

Entertainment venues, including pubs, bars, karaoke lounges, and massage parlors, will remain closed until further notice.

However, the approval would be effective as soon as it was agreed and signed by the province’s governor.
