NAKHON RATCHASIMA: Hotels ordered to close to contain the Covid-19 outbreak are likely to be allowed to reopen from June 1, provincial governor Wichian Chantaranothai said on Tuesday.
Mr Wichian said that with the level of cooperation from the public and private sectors the coronavirus situation in the province was improving satisfactorily, and nearing normalcy.
A number of businesses had already been allowed to re-open and some activities to resume, allowing people to relax somewhat, on the condition they strictly observe disease control standards set by the Public Health Ministry.
Mr Wichian said he expected hotels would be allowed to reopen from June 1. They must first inform the provincial office of their readiness to resume business and willingness to comply with the health guidelines.
To help get them back on their feet, government offices in the province would organise seminars, meetings or other activities at the hotels, with budgets allocated for these purposes, he said.
Activities would also be organised to promote tourism and bring the economic situation back to normal as soon as possible.
