Bangkok eateries that meet disease control standards can serve alcohol until 11pm from Wednesday, and pub owners can convert their premises to restaurants if they also want to reopen, the Bangkok governor said on Monday.

Governor Aswin Kwanmuang on Monday issued his latest order on the closure and reopening of business premises.

The order allows eateries in Bangkok that meet the Amazing Thailand Safety & Health Administration (SHA) standard of the Tourism and Sports Ministry and the Thai Stop Covid Plus standard of the Health Department to serve alcoholic beverages until 11pm, starting on Dec 1.

The current deadline is 9pm. The new order is effective from Dec 1 to 31.

Pol Gen Aswin said on Monday that pubs, bars and karaoke shops would remain closed to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. If the operators wanted to reopen in the meantime, they could convert their premises to serving food.

If they met disease control standards for eateries they would be allowed to reopen, the Bangkok governor said.

Operators could make modifications and improvements to meet the Covid Free Setting standards of the Health Department, and wait for evaluation.

If they passed evaluation and the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration approved their reopening after the New Year, then they could reopen right away, the governor said.
