In an attempt to contain Covid-19, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s earlier order allowing dining in restaurants from 7pm to 6 am was overruled by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha Monday night allowing eateries to serve food until 9 pm.
The ban will be put into effect at 6 am on January 5.
Pongsakorn Kwanmuang, BMA spokesman said the BMA communicable disease committee issued a new measure for all food shops, barbeque and buffet restaurants, food stalls and cafes in Bangkok to sell only takeaway food without dine-in services from 7 pm to 6 am. (Now 9pm to 6 am)
Violators will be punishable by one year in prison and/or a maximum fine of 100,000 baht.
