All people in Thailand are banned from leaving home from 10pm to 4am starting Friday in the government’s latest move to contain the spread of coronavirus.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha announced the curfew on Thursday evening.

Exempted from the curfew are medical and banking personnel, as well as logistic workers handling consumer products, farm goods, pharmaceutical products, medical supplies and equipment, newspapers, petrol, postal parcels, or products to be imported or exported. Movements of people to quarantine places are also allowed.

Other exemptions are people working normal night shifts or those heading to or from airports with necessary documents stating the purposes, or officials working by the announcements or orders and those allowed by officials to leave the house on emergencies.

Violation will result in a jail term of not more than two years and/or a fine not more than 40,000 baht.

Existing curfew orders or announcements in any province with stricter requirements shall remain in effect.

Where did you see this Anton?  I know this curfew applies to the dark red zones, but didn't realise it applied to the red ones (us) too.  (Not that it will affect me!)

Our convenience store has to close at 10pm starting today. I also saw on Bangkok Post that The Mall will be closed except for supermarkets, food courts, pharmacy shops, eateries (takeouts only), banks, mobile phone shops and vaccination sites.

I think that's just  the dark red zones in the greater Bkk area.

Yes, you are right. When I read the article, it said "all branches of The Mall" so I assumed it meant in Korat too. However, our store must close at 10pm by order of the police.
