Restrictions ease, 25 provinces reclassified as “yellow” zones
  • follow us in feedly

Restrictions are easing in 25 provinces following a revision to the colour-coded zoning based on local infection rates. Starting January 24, those provinces will move from “orange” controlled zones to “yellow” zones under surveillance. In the “yellow” and “blue” zones, alcohol sales will be allowed until 11pm.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation decided to relax some measures today at its general meeting chaired by PM Prayut Chan-o-cha. A spokesperson says the decisions were taken under careful consideration, and while the infection rate has risen, the number of severe infections and Covid-related fatalities remain fairly low.

The “blue” zones, which are approved for pilot tourism programmes, have remained the same. Blue zones include Bangkok, Chon Buri, Kanchanaburi, Krabi, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Phang Nga, and Phuket. Several areas and districts, including the area in Samut Prakan by the Suvarnabhumi Airport, are also designated as “blue” zones.

Alcohol sales at restaurants are still restricted in provinces classified as “orange” zones. Large gatherings in “orange” zones must also not exceed 500 people. (See list of provinces by zone below.)
