The third phase of lockdown relaxation will take effect on June 1, after five relevant procedures are completed, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) informed on Friday (May 22).
Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, CCSA spokesman, said that the procedures would be operated from May 23 to 31. The first procedure, on May 23 and 24, is collection of information on the Covid-19 situation by officials involved with the lockdown relaxation.
“The officials will hold a meeting on May 25 and 26, and, on May 27 another meeting will be held by the specialised committee to consider whether the lockdown needs to be eased or not.”
The decision on the third phase will be taken at the CCSA meeting on May 29, and would be enforced on the first day of June, he said.
Taweesin added that the businesses, which would be allowed to resume in the third phase, have not been determined, but they would not be high-risk ones like night clubs. Currently, places that sell food and beverage, malls, supermarkets, retail and convenience stores, banks, salons, beauty clinics, parks, pharmaciesand government organisations have been allowed to reopen.
Businesses that remain closed are zoos, amusement and water parks, game centres, gathering halls, exhibition centres, schools, amulet markets, spas, massage parlours, tattoo shops and boxing camps.
