Best translation is that starting tomorrow there will be no traveling outside the city from 5pm to 8pm and no traveling at all from 8pm to 5am except for emergencies.

No official curfew order until now. Also at Tesco Lotus they just told me that until now they are planning to close at 22:00 as usual.

I saw a Thai document the said there would be a curfew but it was probably fake news. Went to Tesco JoHo yesterday and before they let you in they took your temperature and disinfected your hands with some kind of disinfection spray.

Hi RDRO. I read that earlier and wasn't sure if 'at home' meant inside the garden walls or staying in your town or village   ???

Looks like curfew is coming.

Thanks Rdrokit. Personally, though, I interpret that the opposite way, i.e. that curfew is NOT coming... Time will tell.

Yes, like at all supermarkets since about 1 week now. At Terminal 21, when entering the basement floor that is the only floor currently open to the public, they even installed a scanner that shows your whole body's temperature on a screen. I'm talking about the entrance directly from outside when going down the external escalator, Foodland side. And once more I have to remark that at Terminal 21 they do things better than elsewhere.

Regarding travel, at the moment inter-province travel is permitted but you will probably meet a checkpoint at the provincial border where your temperature will be taken to screen for people who might have Covid19.
