NAKHON RATCHASIMA: Six eateries in downtown Muang district were found to have ignored Covid-19 controls and continued to serve alcoholic beverages to customers after 9pm.

The violations were uncovered after provincial governor Wichian Chanthanothai ordered inspections on Thursday.

The six offenders were Lamor karaoke & restaurant, Beat Bar, Phrao, Tangwong, Jaewhon Sanam 80 Pansa and  Airline 168.

Eateries in these areas are allowed to open until 11pm and alcohol consumption is allowed at shops with SHA Plus certificates until 9pm.
