This Phuket “Sand Box” (really the name under which the government promotes it) is a better option for locals or residents of Thailand to return to a country that would otherwise book a hotel room in Bangkok for 14 days without allowed out at all, than for tourists.
I have been to Phuket numerous times and may go in August or September, depending on how other parts of Thailand are doing with Covid-19. Right now, those in Bangkok are prohibited from traveling to Phuket at all.
