Koh Larn-The votes are in.

 

The island, which is partially self-governed by their own council and elder, held a referendum over the weekend to decide if they would reopen the island to tourists, their prime source of income.

 

Koh Larn has been closed since May 5th, as we reported here, due to concerns about Covid-19.

 

The island is almost 100% dependent on tourists for their income and is the closest major island to Bangkok, drawing thousands of tourists from Bangkok and other nearby provinces when open. Although the situation in Pattaya specifically has improved around Covid-19 and most Chonburi cases are coming from factories and migrant worker camps that typically do not travel or leave their work/dormitories, the major concern from island residents is that if the island was opened Bangkokians would stream in, and possibly bring Covid-19 with them.

At least someone can see the benefit of a lock down in the short-term to have something in the long-term
