strange decision ??

Totally. I can see this getting rescinded pretty quickly. There's no way they could check on all the seating arrangements or, when it comes to Thai dining, that restaurants are issuing serving spoons with each dish or that diners aren't digging in with their own spoons.

Excellent observation young Tam .. and eating with a mask on may also be troublesome !!

What a "brilliant" move. Maybe he can form up a new restaurant police force to make sure all the rules are obeyed.

So does that must mean only one person on each side of most tables and only tables that are Two metres wide can be used or else their legs & feet will be under one metre apart

As ever here theres always a grey area here .. not black or white .. in this case (restaurants) i think it should be a total blanket closure ..no semi open for takeaways seating arrangements etc ..closed means closed EVERYWHERE nationwide. This obviously effects our business but so be it .. get rid of the uncertainty n close all restaurants n cafes coffee shops etc etc... as posted before went into town n the Thai run noodle shops and lat Khao places are operating as normal n packed ... no distanced seating nothing so what is the difference and why are they not closed.

Cook at home and isolate , go out to shop weekly ... if a curfew is introduced will it be adhered to ??? another grey area. In times like this the people dont need confusion as is the case now with restaurants.

places that should stay open
Hospitals obviously
Clinics ??
banks
supermarkets food only sales
pharmacies
Government buildings
Petrol stations
Immo unless they wave visas during the crisis
Police stations

I understand where you are coming from, DM ........ but the reality is different.

In my experience, there is a good proportion of people (mainly single) living here who have no (or only the most rudimentary) access to cooking facilities in their 1 room rooms. A single burner to cook momma noodles every night?

And that only looks at the evening meal - what should workers who are kilometres from home do for lunch?

Not many here who are likely to pack a sandwich.

Where I am now in U.S. we are on a 30 day stay at home order with some exemptions for certain places. Funny thing is one type of business exempt is Liquor Stores.

I heard a story on Thai PBS TV tonight that an unidentified Udon Thani restaurant was closed down by the police for violating the govts orders regarding restaurants which are only supposed to allow take away service. Apparently the owner was seating customers and serving them meals in place. The owner was fined 10,000THB

Funny you should ask, in Kansas City Kansas the big corporate ones are because they sell food too, but in Kansas City Missouri they were told to close .

Yes Jack i get all that AND FULLY UNDERSTAND its a very difficult complex situation to sort out ... BUT .. the fact that so many of these small shop house style places are remaining open and have a large footfall of customers in close proximity is rendering all other closures in place merely token in that the less venues open the less chance of a cluster out break , alas it only takes one to infect another person in turn a family a village or district a town etc .

Micro ready meals ?? pre made bought food delivered daily to the places of work that remain open like banks etc.. I DONT HAVE AN ANSWER .

SHOCKED THIS MORNING AT THE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC ON THE RING ROAD NEAR THE AIRPORT its SUNDAY very busy already.

As I posted on another thread....
Hundreds of farangs queuing daily in close proximity at the many Immigration offices... waiting for hours.
It only needs one person to be infected in the office and the virus will spread like wildfire.
Not just farangs but also Immigration Officers and there family and friends.
As of yesterday there were 44 Italian doctors dead from treating patients with the virus... working in close proximity to the sick... plenty of places still open in Thailand that are high risk.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.
