Thailand's Cabinet has rejected the proposal by the Thai Government’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) that it postpone the upcoming May 2020 Thai public holidays, as was done for last month's April 13-15 Songkran public holidays.
Earlier this week (2020-04-27), Thailand's Government’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has made recommendations to the Thai Cabinet that it postpone the upcoming May 2020 Thai public holidays, a recommendation which was considered at today's Cabinet meeting.
Earlier this year (2020-02-18), the notion of declaring Thursday, April 16, and Friday, April 17, 2020, as one-off public holidays in Thailand, had been floated around, as was done for the past 2 years (2019-02-13, 2019-01-30 and 2018-02-27), but, then (2020-03-16), Thailand's Deputy government spokesperson, Rachada Thanadirek, announced that the then upcoming April 13-15 Songkran Thai public holidays, would be postponed to a later, unspecified date, thus amending the previously-released list of 2020 public holidays in Thailand (2019-07-31).
