BANGKOK, Nov 26 (TNA) – The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration stands firm on its previous resolution for entertainment places to reopen on Jan 16 and picks zones for their late-night alcohol sales and consumption.

 

CCSA spokesman Dr. Taweesilp Wisanuyothin said the center viewed that entertainment venues posed many risks of disease transmission including their ventilation issues and the behaviors of their customers who would take off face masks and chat. In the past at least two big clusters of COVID-19 infections involved entertainment places, he said.

 

The CCSA spokesman said the government wanted the operators of entertainment venues to prepare for their reopening. From Dec 1, their conditions and ventilation systems will be improved. All their staff must be vaccinated against COVID-19. The places will then be evaluated for their reopening licenses.

Not being a visitor to nightclubs and bars anymore, it is common two people go to a bar and order one alcoholic drink and two straws ? 

I can well imagine that two people order two different cocktails, and try each other's.

Limited opening... always the caveat.

That new dangerous variant was also detected in HK

I thought it had been detected in Belgium but not yet UK. Irrelevant I suspect, it will get there.

Not to mention after arriving at a destination with said customers and taking the rest off.

These places are common for people smoking, belching, flatulating, talking, arguing and complaining with their stinky buzzed loud mouths.

As the article states, potential super spreader venues.

The new mutations were first discovered in South Africa and have since been detected in Belgium, Botswana, Israel and Hong Kong.

What a farce. At the Pattaya Firework Festival last night there were thousands of people sat within a few feet of each other eating and drinking, in effect an open air bar. No problem. Sorry the only problem was the massive queue at 7/11 to get drinks.

The real test of this will be if there is a new spike of Covid cases 10-14 days from now. Too early to conclude that the crowd gathering was safe!

Yes, it is common in many places not frequented by foreigners.  A group will buy a bottle of (usually blended) spirits and use just the one shot glass between them.  Even in Hi-So places - although it wouldn't be Blend 185, Hong Thong, or Sang Som, it would be Johnny Walker or Jack Daniel's.  It is rumoured that is how the Thong Lor outbreak which caused the third wave started:  customers and hostesses sharing glasses.  But I don't put much weight into unsubstantiated speculation.

Also Bucket Drinks in the sports and themed bars which cater for the Shorts, Singlets and Thongs/flipflop Brigade are often shared.

I was there, didn’t stay long, in the past at the music festival chairs were spaced the relevant distance apart, last night there was row upon row sun loungers with no social distance space whatsoever and all occupied at 100 baht for one. Not a Policeman in sight, Beach Road had also loads of footfall, surely if there isn’t a cluster there is no reason why open bars can’t reopen ?

Unfortunately this will not happen. 

New c-19 variant on the way

Unfortunately I think you're correct. I've always said "you can't stop a mutating virus, as in the flu" we have as long as the government want us to have the restrictions.
