A meeting of the Covid-19 Administration Centre, chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, approved a motion to postpone the Songkran holidays from April 13-15 to later dates, deputy government spokeswoman Rachada Thanadirek said on her Twitter account today (March 16).

Ratchada said the meeting cited the reason of “increasing social distance” and “minimising public movement both domestically and internationally”.“

The compensating holidays will be announced later,” she added.

A news source from the centre also revealed that it would by next week present to the Cabinet a motion to have all entertainment venues close at 8pm and all universities close their campuses and provide online classes starting April 1 until the situation improves.
