The First Minister has set out a timetable for reopening Wales’ visitor economy following a 21-day review period. See below for the dates businesses can reopen:
From 11th July
From 13th July
From 20th July
The following provisional dates have also been announced:
From 25th July
From 27th July
A final decision about reopening these sectors will depend on conditions and feedback from the initial opening of the tourism industry, indoor attractions and hairdressing sector. The next formal review is due by 30 July with detailed discussions about how indoor hospitality can operate in a coronavirus-safe way ongoing. Options for reopening will be considered from 3 August, if conditions allow. The Welsh Government is also making changes to the regulations to allow larger gatherings of up to 30 people outdoors only where these are organised and supervised by a responsible person for sports and other leisure activities and classes.
The law will continue to make the 2m distance the default position for physical distancing, but given the challenges faced by the hospitality, beauty industry and other sectors, where a 2m distance cannot be reasonably maintained at all times. the regulations will require businesses to put in place a set of additional measures to minimise the risk of the virus spreading.
