In general the Welsh Government has relaxed the lockdown restrictions but everyone must follow social distancing rules with people they don’t live with or who are not in their support bubble.

They must wear a face covering (if able to) in all indoor public places, not create an extended household (some people may be able to form a support bubble with one other household).

They must meet only the people they live with or in their support bubble indoors and limit the number of people they meet socially (a maximum of six people from two households can meet outdoors including in private gardens).

They must not travel outside of Wales without a reasonable excuse and not travel internationally without reasonable excuse.

The Welsh Government also announced the following can re-open: schools, colleges and childcare providers (informal childcare should be essential only), higher education institutions (mix of in-person and remote learning), places of worship, community centres - limited opening (for example, for essential public services), crematoriums, playgrounds and public parks, outdoor sports courts and courses, hair salons and barbers, garden centres, libraries, some outdoor visitor attractions, self-contained accommodation.

Weddings are now allowed in venues that are allowed to be open, and funerals (ceremony limit set by venue) and organised outdoor activities for the development and wellbeing of children can take place.

But the following must remain closed: venues for events and conferences, theatres and concert halls, indoor and the majority of outdoor visitor attractions, entertainment venues, indoor leisure and fitness facilities, hospitality (except for takeaway and delivery), close contact services (except for hair salons and barbers), most non-essential retail (click and collect allowed), licensed premises, takeaway and delivery only between 6am and 10pm and nightclubs and adult entertainment venues.
