Phuket beaches to reopen on June 9

After more than two months’ of closure, all beaches on the island of Phuket will be reopened to the public on Tuesday.

Phuket Provincial Governor Pakkapong Thaweepat said the provincial communicable diseases committee met today, to assess the COVID-19 pandemic situation in the province, and agreed to reopen the beaches after having not had a single new infection on the island for the past 15 days.

He added, however, that beachgoers will be required to observe basic guidelines, such as social distancing. Local administrative organizations and the provincial administration will meet on Monday to work on additional guidelines for visitors to follow.

The provincial transport office is also due to reopen on Monday, to provide services to driving licence applicants, those paying annual road taxes or extending their driving licenses, among others.
