The amnesty for those "trapped" in Thailand us extended to 26th September.

Here is an outline of requirements as far as I understand it...Tourist visas VOA and 30 day can stay until 26th Sept.

If for some reason you still cannot leave you may get 30 day extension with letter from your embassy.

For long visas...O, B, Ed etc, you have time to get your extension etc sorted at local immigration by 26th Sept. Extensions will start on 27th

Be aware that 90 day sign-on start up again from the 1st of August.

Here is the Nation's take on entry requirements for foreigners

A lot of extra layers of bureaucracy with little thought as to how they will be implemented.

those who want and extension after 26th Sept, th regs are thus according to Phuket News.

"The "automatic visa extension" continues until Sept 26. In order for short-term visa holders to remain in Thailand after that date, they must apply for an extension to stay before Sept 26. For that, they must have a letter from their embassy or a letter from a doctor (in case illness is preventing travel). The 30-day extension, if granted, will become effective from Sept 27"

Looks like tourists and other non immigrant visa holders are going to have to wait a little longer.

...
"No Immediate Plan’ to Permit More Foreigners Into Thailand" - https://www.khaosodenglish.com/news/...-thailand/amp/


"said only four groups of non-Thai nationals announced in the latest regulation are permitted into the Kingdom at the moment. They include those holding a certificate of permanent residency, a work permit, those who have a special arrangements with the government, and migrant workers."

People arriving in Thailand are required to quarantine for 14 days.
This is usually at a state facility.
If you dont like that idea, there are hotels that are officially recognised..... they have contracts with hospitals. .the guests foot the bill.
