* Update to Wales’ Coronavirus Regulations*

Wales is currently an all-Wales travel area, but is now moving out of alert level four, and starting to move into level three. From 12 April:
  • Outdoor sports facilities can reopen, including tennis courts, golf courses and bowling greens. A maximum of Six people from two different households can take part in activities using local sports facilities.
  • From Saturday 24 April, 6 people from any number of households, excluding children under 11, will be able to meet and exercise outdoors and in private gardens
  • Maintain two metre social distancing rules with people you don’t live with or who are not in your support bubble.
  • Wear a face covering (if you are able to) in all indoor public places, including public transport and taxis.
  • Two households can join together to create an extended  household ‘bubble’. This means you can spend time together indoors, including staying over, without needing to socially distance.
  • Gyms and fitness centres can reopen indoors. Organised indoor activities, such as gym classes and swimming lessons can also resume for up to 15 people.
  • Meet only the people you live with or your support bubble indoors.
  • Travel restrictions on travelling into and out of Wales will be lifted. The current restrictions of no international travel for holidays will remain in place.
  • Non-essential retail, including close contact services, can reopen.
  • Glynn Vivian, Plantasia, Grand Theatre, Swansea Museum and West Glamorgan Archive Service remain closed.
  • From Monday 26 April, outdoor hospitality will be able to reopen.
