TiT...

The governor of Bangkok, Pol. Gen. Asawin, today even explicitly recommends pubs and bars and karaoke clubs to become restaurants:

Why isn't the Chonburi governor doing the same?

 

It might be because the Bangkok governor is elected while all other provincial governors are appointed by the Ministry of the Interior.  

These days some Western TV pundits seem to use the talking point "unelected bureaucrats" accompanied with the requisite snarky sneer on their faces as a way to denigrate the policies of government officials.  So the Choburi governor, like Pontious Pilate is appointed, and not beholden to Pattaya barowners.

The Mayor of Pattaya is elected and responsive to local business interests but it seems the governor has the power in this relationship.

That's interesting! I didn't know that. That explains a lot. Thank you!

There was a CCSA meeting today.

If I get it right, restaurants are allowed to serve alcohol on New Year's Eve until 1 am on January the 1st.

That's not exactly what we hoped for, but better than nothing I guess... (fuck you omicron!)

NYE events with more than 1,000 people are only allowed if everyone is fully vaccinated and - in addition - organizers, musicians and everyone else working there must have a negative COVID test done 72 hours before entering the event.

Visitors arriving through the sandbox and quarantine schemes from this Thursday on will have to stay in quarantine for seven days. Previously it was only five days.

No more dark red zones AND Chonburi will become a  tourism pilot area from 16 December!

Police General Asawin Kwanmuang, Governor of Bangkok, signed the order today which extends the closure of entertainment venues, pubs, bars, karaoke until January 15, 2022 or until further notice to monitor, prevent and control the spread of COVID-19 during New Year.
