Situation in Phangnga: Until the beginning of April 2021 there were only a few cases and it was relatively safe here. But Since the beginning of that month more cases were found. At this moment the local government officials are afraid of an increase. Two emergency hospitals for covid-19 patients were build in town. They can hold 150 and 80 people. Also we are requiered to wear a mask all the time, as soon as you leave your house. The fine could be as high as 20000 baht!! People are -again- asked to stay home, work from home, and not leave the province. If you leave the province you need to self-quarantaine 14 days.
Can you enter the country?: You can enter the country but you have to go through the quarantaine period of 14 days at your own costs. That will cost you at least 35000 baht extra. You can not go out of the room, and only after day 4-5 you are allowed to walk around the pool for an hour a day (not swim....) For holidays this is not a serious option. After the quarantaine period you are free to go, but can face another quarantaine if you have bad luck and enter a strict province.
Vaccination: Depending on which province you talk about, about 1-7% of the people had at least one shot of the vaccin. In most provinces -like Phangnga- it is only 1%. It could take a long time before all 'people at risk' will be vaccinated.
Manora Garden B&B and us: We are relatively safe her at home: the garden is uge, no people around and it is very easy to keep distance. We only go out for a quick shopping or for food. The situation now is exactly the same as last year in April-June. We ourselves could enjoy some long weekends (that we called holidays) between July and February 2021, but that is unfortunately totally over. That said we are safe at home and can manage relatively well!
Open? We prepare to open in November for the next high season. We have adjusted the rooms, our policies, roomprices, cleaningplan and so on. We are ready to welcome you, but we know that it will not be easy for you: Feel free to book, you can always cancel and whereever you book, you can always cancel for free.
