Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) will be asked to ease restrictions on eateries in shopping malls and department stores, by allowing them to provide take-away and delivery services.

Deputy government spokesperson Ms. Traisulee Traisoranakul told the media today (Monday) that the CCSA’s operations centre has instructed the Ministry of Public Health to develop a set of guidelines for eateries, located in malls and department stores, in case they are allowed to resume business for take-away and delivery customers, to ease the hardships caused by the CCSA’s lockdown measures in the 13 “Dark Red” provinces, including Bangkok, imposed since July 20th.

The guidelines include:

-Eateries may only accept online orders and may not open their store-fronts.

-All eateries are required to deploy DMHT COVID-19 protection measures for their staff, which include wearing face masks all the time, no social gatherings or eating together, staff travel to their workplaces on specific sealed routes, only the entry to an eatery is open and any staff member who develops breathing difficulties or is considered as high risk must stop working immediately.

-Each mall or department store must designate a specific point for customers to collect their food with an emphasis on social distancing and the wearing of face masks. The pick-up points must be well ventilated, not crowded, equipped with hand sanitizer and a body temperature sensor and customers are required to use the Mor Chana or Mor Prom apps.
