Culture Ministry unveils plan to reopen venues, restart movie industry


The Culture Ministry will propose guidelines to reopen historical sites and ease restrictions of activities under its supervision, said minister Itthipol Kunplome. 

The proposal, which will be put to the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, also covers the organisation of cultural street events, as well as film productions in the Kingdom. 

The guidelines limit the size of film crews to 50 personnel, and prohibit close contact between characters in action or love scenes, which should be created via computer if necessary. 

Studio-based productions must strictly observe public health guidelines calling for social distancing and temperature checks.
