Thailand lets in some foreigners, opens schools

BANGKOK (AP) — Thailand began a fifth phase of relaxations of COVID-19 restrictions, allowing the reopening of schools and high-risk entertainment venues that had been shut since mid-March. It also is allowing in foreign visitors on a controlled basis, limiting entry to those with existing family or work ties to the country, students, technical experts for businesses, investors and specially invited VIPs. Scheduled passenger flights to Thailand were suspended in early April. More details in Thursday’s Borneo Bulletin
