The move came after the CCSA on May 20 approved to allow venues, such as pubs, bars, karaoke outlets and massage parlours, to operate until midnight from June 1, said assistant spokesperson Dr Apisamai Srirangsan.
However, promotion activities will be banned, while serving staff will be required to wear face masks, she added.
"The CCSA would like to emphasise that only venues in blue (tourism pilot) and green (low-surveillance) provinces can be reopened," she said.
