BANGKOK -Following the ban on alcohol sales in Bangkok effective as of yesterday, City Hall officials have inspected shops and venues, all of which were found to be complying with the regulation.

The team inspected areas around Central Lad Phrao shopping mall and around Major Ratchayothincineplex. Shops inside the shopping malls were found to be complying well with the regulation, with no one found to be illegally selling alcoholic drinks.

City law enforcement officers will continue to strictly inspect shops and other venues to ensure no violations of the alcohol sale ban lasting 10 days. Places found selling alcohol during this period will first receive a formal warning, followed by stringent prosecution for any repeat violation.

The inspection team also found social distancing measures to be well implemented at Central Lad Phrao shopping mall, with a clearly designated area for food deliveries. (NNT)
