The Thai Cabinet approved the proposal from the COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) to extend the nation-wide state of emergency to the end of June.


  • While new cases hovered consecutively at single digit or zero for almost a month, the Cabinet agreed with CCSA on the necessity for the state of emergency to continue to help in the containment and prevention of the spread of COVID-19.
  • CCSA announced that the COVID-19 outbreak is under control but there is a high possibility of the second wave of outbreak.
  • Further relaxation measures that are considered include extending shopping malls’ opening hours, as well as shortening current curfew hours.
  • Medium to high risk businesses will be allowed to reopen in the third phase of relaxation which starts on 1 June with approval from CCSA.
  • Venues and businesses that are in the high-risk categories such as boxing stadiums, pubs, water park and amusement parks will remain closed and reopen in the final phase of relaxation.
