    Vaccination not required for dining in at restaurants in dark red provinces

    In a contradiction of earlier reports, patrons will not need to be fully vaccinated in order to dine in at restaurants in the dark red zones. The announcement by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration has been published in the Royal Gazette, making it official. The Bangkok Post reports that restaurant customers will not need to pass a Covid-19 test in order to eat in either.

    Last week, the Public Health Ministry had proposed easing the ban on dining-in at restaurants for vaccinated customers only, or those who tested negative through an antigen test kit prior to being admitted.

    The government’s Covid-19 task force has announced the easing of a number of Covid-19 restrictions as the country moves towards a “living with Covid-19” model. Taweesilp Visanuyothin from the CCSA has instructed the Public Health Ministry to monitor the impact of the easing of restrictions in terms of infection rates.

    The Bangkok Post reports that schools in Bangkok are permitted to open provided they meet conditions laid down by the Education Ministry and the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation. Gatherings of no more than 25 people will also be permitted, with permission from the authorities.

    From tomorrow, beauty salons and barber shops can re-open for bookings, but walk-in customers cannot be accepted. Massage businesses can re-open for foot massages only. The ban on interprovincial travel from the dark red provinces is also being lifted, with airlines given permission to resume domestic flights at no more than 75% capacity.

    Meanwhile, a number of restrictions remain in place, such as the 9:00 pm – 4:00 am curfew, while employees who can do so are asked to continue working from home until September 14.2021
