Dr. Ratchada, said that the cabinet meeting agreed that July 27th will not be observed as a public holiday, as stringent public health measures are still needed to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in the country while the CCSA has asked people to refrain from nonessential interprovincial travel.

A meeting of cabinet ministers resolved to cancel a public holiday on July 27th this year, as interprovincial travel may not ease the current COVID-19 situation. The meeting also approved in principle relief measures for entrepreneurs and workers affected by further restrictions as announced by the government’s Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).



Deputy Government Spokeswoman, Dr. Ratchada Thanadirek, said today that the cabinet meeting agreed that July 27th will not be observed as a public holiday, as stringent public health measures are still needed to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in the country. The CCSA has asked people to refrain from nonessential interprovincial travel. Previously, July 27th, which falls on Tuesday, was a substitute Songkran holiday. The cabinet ministers directed related agencies to facilitate people who have already made travel arrangements, including ticket cancellations and hotel reservations. (NNT)
