PHUKET: Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew has submitted a formal request to the national government to allow Phuket ease certain COVID restrictions ‒ including allowing alcohol to be sold and bars and entertainment venues to reopen in order to help alleviate the financial hardship suffered by the residents on the island.

 

The appeal, issued today (Sept 27) and addressed to the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), was titled “Policy recommendations and guidelines for adjusting disease control measures in workplaces or at risk locations” and specifically referred to the regulations issued under Article 9 of the Emergency Decree on Public Administration in Emergency Situations.

 

In his letter Governor Narong pointed out that the Phuket Province has opened as a pilot area for tourists under the Phuket Sandbox scheme since July 1, to help drive the economy while implementing disease control measures by allowing tourists from low and medium risk countries to travel to Thailand without quarantine, all in accordance with the rules set out by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Tourism and Sports.

1.2 Permit to sell and drink liquor or alcoholic beverages within the shop [venue] by specifying it to be sold during 11:00 - 14.00 hrs. and from 17.00 - 22.00 hrs.

1.3 Music performances are to be permitted, but not more than three instruments, or music may be played in the shop [venue] at normal times.

 

Because we need more annoying rules to change later and keep everyone on their toes. Tourists love it.

The professional Musicians will really appreciate this proposal

 

QUOTE:

3.1 Organise musical performances in the genre of folk song, not more than 3 instruments, and not more than 3 performers on stage.

3.2 The stage must have partitions according to the size of the stage to prevent close contact with customers. The distance between the table, the customer and the stage is at least 2 metres.

3.3 Musicians or performers of music must wear a hygiene mask or face shield while performing.

3.4 All musicians must be vaccinated with 2 doses (full dose) of vaccine and are prohibited from drinking alcoholic beverages during performances, whether for themselves or their clients.

The sooner they get the stupid thought out of their non intoxicated minds that bars and alcohol spread the disease more than someone sitting down at a restaurant, the sooner the better for the majority of the expat p*ss heads, self included. I mean do they think we are irresponsible, some of us can handle our own and know how to social distance, well at least until a young filly forces us to become infected with Covid after a few drinks.

 

Only way to go, I say as opposed to getting it from some stranger walking past you at Lotus, at least you'll have memories when your lights are going out 🙂

Locked indoors I actually drink more than when the pubs are open. When the pubs were open I drank 2 or 3 times a week, now its everyday.

Circling around Patong this morning  it may be preemptive but many restaurants and official cafe bar restaurants are preparing for alcohol sales from 1st October. Hopefully not wishful thinking again. Story is they will sell under Covid controls from 11am to 2pm and 5pm to 10pm
