“The CCSA committee has invited people responsible for the business and activities for discussions.

Some business and activities have resumed and they will receive a green light for more activities. For example, the discussions will look into the possibility of sports competitions at exercise venues.

Measures will be considered for bigger film crews as such crews were capped at two-digit numbers of crew members. Events, concerts and entertainment venues will also be considered. Their operators must discuss the matter with CCSA,” Dr Taweesin said. (TNA)
