The Thai government has announced July 1 to be the much-anticipated end to the Covid-19 emergency decree, lockdowns, curfew, travel bans and business closings.

Officials and the CCSA will spend June getting ready for the “complete reopening of the country.”

However, keeping people safe is still a top priority.
“Authorities will have serious discussions because after the emergency decree ends, other laws will be used instead.”
The details, have yet to be decided.

National Security Council Secretary-General General Somsak Rungsita emphasized that people’s cooperation is important.

“This concerns the use of face masks, social distancing, hand wash and limited activities. As long as the disease is spreading worldwide, we will have to fight against it for a while.”

The general said that the emergency decree will stay in place for the month of June as well as the international travel ban. A third phase of reopenings is scheduled to commence on June 1 – with an announcement on the lifting of phase three restrictions expected for tomorrow.

Curfew hours may also be shortened for June as well as easing restrictions and paperwork required for domestic travel.

Business operators and customers will still be required to use the Thai Chana mobile app to check in and check out of businesses permitted to reopen during the next month.
