Despite the abolition of the majority of laws in England, restrictions on the corona virus remain in place in Wales.
Deviant nations in the UK have implemented their plans to lift lockdown restrictions this summer, which means everyone coming to Wales from England will face different rules.
Although social distance, mandatory face masks and restrictions on gatherings have been removed in England, Wales still has strict rules.
However, from 7 August, the rules are set to change again as Wales Alert moves to level 0.
According to the Welsh Government: “For everyone living, working or coming to Wales, regardless of your country of residence, it is important that we all follow the current guidelines and rules that apply here in Wales.”
If you are going to Wales this summer, you need to know these rules.
The rules still exist.
Unlike in England, in Wales every person 11 years of age or older should continue to cover their face in all public places unless they are an exception.
In hospitality places, you need to cover your face when you walk around the premises – but you can remove them while sitting at your desk.
There are also limits to the number of people who can gather indoors in Wales.
Private homes and hospitality arrangements allow only six people or fewer people to meet indoors. These rules also apply to holiday accommodation.
Organized indoor events are allowed – but only 1,000 people sit and up to 200 stand.
Social distance within indoor spaces is essential.
People who meet outside have a personal choice as to whether they stick to social distance.
In the external settings, there is no limit to how many people can meet in public places or at events.
Nightclubs and adult entertainment venues in Wales are still closed.
What will change from August 1?
Wales’ first minister, Mark Drakeford, has said that almost all coronavirus restrictions will be lifted on August 7.
However, in addition to hospitality settings, face masks will be required on public transport and most indoor settings.
The number of people allowed to meet at homes will be removed and all businesses and premises will be reopened, including nightclubs.
