As a responsible destination, Swansea Bay wants to support the safety of both residents and visitors to the area:

 

* Update to Wales’ Coronavirus Regulations*

 

From Saturday 7th August 2021 Wales has moved fully into Alert Level Zero.  This means that the following changes to the current restrictions are now in effect:

  • There are no legal limits on the number of people who can meet, including in private homes, public places or at events.
  • Businesses which were required to be closed are able to re-open. This includes nightclubs.
  • Premises which are open to the public and workplaces will have more flexibility about which reasonable measures they take to minimise the risk of coronavirus. But these should be tailored to their risk assessment and their specific circumstances.
  • Face coverings will not be a legal requirement in hospitality settings where food and drink is served, but will continue to be required in most indoor public places.
  • Face coverings will continue to be required in most indoor public places in Wales, including on public transport, in shops and in healthcare settings. There will be exemptions for people who cannot wear them, as there are currently.
  • fully vaccinated adults, people under 18 and vaccine trial participants will not need to self-isolate if they are a close contact of someone with coronavirus.
  • Everyone must continue to isolate for 10 days if they have Covid-19 symptoms or if they have a positive test result.

From Monday 11 October

People will be required to show the NHS COVID pass to prove they are either fully vaccinated or have a recent negative Lateral Flow Test to attend:

  • nightclubs
  • indoor non-seated events where over 500 people are mixing closely for prolonged periods
  • outdoor non-seated events where over 4,000 people are mixing closely for prolonged periods
  • any event of more than 10,000 people
