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

From Monday 9 November, Wales will be leaving it’s two week Firebreak Lockdown, and new Welsh Government guidelines and regulations will be in effect. As a result;

  • As part of keeping risks to a minimum, people should avoid non-essential travel as much as possible.
  • There will be no legal restrictions on travel within Wales for residents, but international travel should be for essential reasons only.
  • The need to maintain two metre social distancing and wear face masks in enclosed public places, including on public transport and taxis, will continue
  • All premises, such as restaurants, cafes, pubs and gyms, closed during the firebreak, will be able to reopen.*
  • People should only meet with their ‘bubble’ in their own home and only two households will be able to form a ‘bubble’. If one person from either household develops symptoms, everyone should immediately self-isolate.
  • The need to maintain two metre social distancing and wear face masks in enclosed public places, including on public transport and taxis, will continue.

* Following the announcement about the English lockdown, Ministers are having ongoing discussions with the hospitality sector about the detailed rules for reopening. This includes about meeting in public indoor spaces.

Please refer to the official links below to find out the most up to date guidance and information available relating to COVID-19. We will update this page regularly with the latest Wales travel advice as appropriate.
