Upcoming changes to covid restrictions in Wales.

Changes to covid restrictions in Wales are set to change in the coming months. From 17 July, Wales will move to Alert Level 1, allowing more people to be able to meet up indoors and outdoors. From 7 August, Wales is set to move to alert Alert Level 0, where most restrictions such as social distancing rules will come to an end. People will still be required to wear facemasks in public spaces such as in shops and on buses.

From Saturday 17 July

Complete the move to alert level 1:

  • up to 6 people can meet indoors in private homes and holiday accommodation
  • organised indoor events for up to 1,000 seated or 200 standing can take place, subject to a risk assessment and taking reasonable measures
  • ice rinks can re-open
  • remove the legal restrictions on the number of people who can gather outdoors
  • allow up to 30 children from organisations, such as the Brownies and Scouts, to attend residential centres over the summer holidays

From Saturday 7 August (if conditions allow)

Complete the move to alert level 0:

  • remove legal restrictions on the number of people who can meet indoors, including in private homes, public places or at events
  • all businesses and premises can open, including nightclubs
  • people should still work from home wherever possible
  • face coverings will remain a legal requirement indoors, with the exception of hospitality premises. This will be kept under review.
