The final decision will be made by the cabinet. Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha chairs both the cabinet and the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration.

If approved, 54 provinces will be green (under monitoring) from 35 currently, while Samut Sakhon remains the only province designated red (maximum control).

The yellow zone (under close monitoring) will consist of 14 provinces from 17 now. They are Kanchanaburi, Suphan Buri, Ayutthaya, Saraburi, Nakhon Nayok, Chachoengsao, Chon Buri, Rayong, Phetchaburi, Ranong Chumphon, Songkhla, Yala and Narathiwat.

The orange zone (restricted) will consist of eight provinces from 20. They are Bangkok Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan, Tak, Ratchaburi, Samut Songkhram and Nakhon Pathom.
