Wales set to remove remaining COVID protections as of 28 March

04, March 2022

On 4 March the Welsh Government published ‘Together for a Safer Future: Wales’ Long-term Covid-19 Transition from Pandemic to Endemic’, which sets out how Wales will live safely with coronavirus.

The Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No. 5) (Wales) Regulations 2020 require a review of the coronavirus measures to be undertaken every three weeks. The most recent three-week review was due to be completed by 3 March.

Remaining protections at alert level zero will remain in place during the next 21-day review period, with the next review due to take place on 24 March. If the current public health situation remains stable, the Welsh Government intend to remove all the remaining restrictions on 28 March.

In the meantime all the remaining restrictions including face coverings continue to be a legal requirement for adults and children aged 11+, unless exempt, in all retail settings.
