The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) announced Saturday an extension to the closure of entertainment venues, such as pubs, bars, karaoke bars, until further notice.

The announcement is in line with the decision of the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) to keep night entertainment venues closed due to concern that their reopening could result in a surge of COVID-19 infections, by the Omicron variant in particular.

Eateries that meet the SHA PLUS standards, as set by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, or the Public Health Ministry’s “Thai Stop COVID 2 Plus” standards can, however, serve alcohol until 11 pm.
