Songkran Water Splash Events Banned

Songkran Festival 2022 celebrations will be allowed next month, but alcohol consumption at events, foam parties, the splashing of water, and powder smearing will be strictly prohibited.

On Friday, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha presided over a meeting of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration over Songkran Festival 2022.

All agencies have been instructed to closely monitor for the emergence of the Omicron Covid-19 subvariant, follow up on testing, and ensure that vaccines are administered in order to reduce the severity of illness.

He said the Covid-19 coronavirus will not be declared endemic at this time. A supporting plan needs to be put in place beforehand.

During the CCSA meeting, it was agreed that Songkran Festival 2022 celebrations could take place without alcohol. Additionally, people should refrain from smearing powder paste on each other, throwing foam parties, and splashing water.

Coronavirus-Free Songkran

Activities such as sprinkling scented water on Buddha statues, pouring water on elderly people’s hands to obtain blessings, and other activities could be conducted. However, all organized events must be in a Coronavirus-free setting, the Premier said.

Coronavirus control measures should also be followed at events organized by local and community groups. Events should not be held in public areas like streets and sidewalks.

Those wanting to hold events in public areas must obtain permission from appropriate authorities.

Government officials have previously assured that inter-provincial travel will be permitted during the Songkran Festival.

Songkran Festival 2022 this year takes place from Wednesday, April 13 to Friday, April 15.

Furthermore, the CCSA agreed to extend the enforcement of the emergency decree, which currently expires at the end of March, for two more months, until the end of May.
