The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has decided to ease lockdown measures at Chatuchak Market.
Merchants will be allowed to open their shops on weekdays, except Monday, Wanlaya Wattanarat, BMA’s deputy permanent secretary, said.
The market had earlier been ordered shut on weekdays and be open only on weekends to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
“To help increase revenue for the merchants, the market will open until 8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, while on Friday, Saturday and Sunday merchants are allowed to remain open until 10pm,” she said.
Chatuchak will close every Monday for cleaning.
