Koh Larn to Reopen Next Week, Beaches Still Closed

Koh Larn, the small island off of Pattaya, has announced via social media last night that they plan to reopen the island for visitors next Tuesday. 3 Ferries will also be running a day, one at 7am, then another at 12pm, and the last one at 5:30pm. The same Covid rules that apply to Chon Buri will be applied to the island, such as a ban on large gatherings and a nightly curfew that lasts from 9pm to 4am.

It has yet to be announced if the beaches will also be opened by the Chon Buri governor. Thus, despite the island itself being reopened, the beaches will stay closed, at least for Tuesday. Visitors will be required to present a passport or if they are a Thai national, a Thai ID card. Foreign migrant workers are not allowed on the island as per the rules stated in the announcement.

Last week it was announced that the island would stay closed until the end of the month.

New infection numbers across the country continue to drop in today’s report from the past 24 hours across Thailand. New infections in the capital continue to drop although other provinces are still worrisome for officials, including Samut Prakan, Chon Buri and Rayong, to the east of the city.

In the southern region, Phuket features with the province having the most new infections, over 200 new cases for the first time yesterday as the numbers continue trend upward over the past week (and 212 new infections reported for Sunday).

There’s been 264 Covid-related deaths in the past 24 hours and 16,536 new infections, continuing a trend of lower new infections reported each day. 328 of today’s announced cases are from the Thai prison system. 20,927 people have been released from care.
