Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew today issued a new order allowing pubs, bars and other entertainment venues to once again remain open until their usual closing time.
Under the order issued today (January 26th), restaurants and food venues may now serve alcohol in accordance with the law as they used to.
Neither Prachuap Khiri Khan nor Phetchaburi provincial authorities have announced similar new orders.
The order, posted by the Phuket office of the Public Relations Department (PR Phuket) earlier today, marked that the order was agreed by the Phuket Communicable Disease Committee yesterday.
“As the COVID-19 situation in Phuket has improved that there are no more COVID-19 infections found, the committee agreed to cancel the late-night alcohol ban in order to revive the economy of Phuket,” the order noted.
The order is to remain in effect until further notice.
Of note, the ban on dancing and the selling of alcohol in containers that will be shared among groups of people remain in effect, and all business operators and events organisers, including those organising sporting events, were warned to comply with the COVID-19 protection measures.
