Thai media Bangkok Biz News reported that Pattaya's mayor Sontaya Khunpluem said today that Pattaya's lockdown will come to an end on May 4th.

 

People will be able to move in and out freely from May 5th, next Tuesday. 

 

The mayor thanked people for their forbearance and said that Pattaya had now been declared a "White Area" after 16 days without a new Covid-19 case. 

 

The decision follows a meeting of the authorities in Chonburi on Wednesday.

I’m in Phuket and I can attest to loosing what very little mind I had prior to lockdown. Still

not allowed out of a tiny almost serviceless area.

Anyone seen whether the beach\pavements will still be no go zones? I've not seen it confirmed yet

Nothing written there only the cessation of the road blocks and checks. 

Whoopee I can take my poodle for a cut and dry!

I tried to (internet) translate the original article and I don't see anything about any of the previous restrictions being lifted.

The only thing changing is the barricades coming down on the 5th. (And what changes where previously announced as taking place on the 1st of the month.)


So the other things, like drinking on the beach (or buying alcohol) are still in place.

I guess most people would have figured out from reading the OP, that this has only to do with the blockades being lifted, and that the nation wide booze ban is done by the government in Bangkok and not subject to a decision by the mayor

Does that mean bars and restaurants will be open even tho it was announced by the government that no alcohol sales until end of May <deleted> is running the show 😱

I doubt it.... at best might be some restaurants not in Malls.

Restaurants yes, bars no.

Restaurants are not allowed to sell alcohol and must maintain a set distance (1.5 metres I think it is) between customers.

What sort of a ridiculous question is this? How do you draw the conclusion that bars will open from the article?

Doesn't look like a conclusion to me, more a question!

"Pattaya had now been declared a "White Area" after 16 days without a new Covid-19 case."

 

And does it become a "Black Area" with the first post-reopening Covid-19 case?

You answered your own question in the same post.

 

Restrictions set by the government can not be replaced by a local mayor

What about beaches? How do they lift restrictions if the the beaches are not allowed? It’s still of a helluva restriction plus the alcohol ban.

Yeah, they need to find a new headline writer. This is what it should have said:

 

Pattaya: ineffective checkpoints set to end - some very minor restrictions lifted from May 5th; most impediments to a normal life will remain.
