Covid rules to be tightened in Wales

29, October 2021

Scrapped Covid rules could be brought back to allow Wales to have a “normal” Christmas, First Minister Mark Drakeford has warned.

New measures are already being brought in to tackle Wales’ high Covid rates – the worst in the UK. Covid passes will be extended to cinemas, theatres and concert halls from 15 November as part of the plans.  This could be further expanded to hospitality if cases do not fall – with pubs, restaurants and cafes required to follow suit, amid a “wider repertoire of actions”.  Passes are already required for nightclubs and many large events.

Employers in Wales are urged to help more people to work from home over the next three weeks.  Retailers are being urged to encourage customers to remember the legal requirement to wear masks in shops.

Guidance around self-isolation will also change.
