Wales set to move into alert level zero

As part of the move, face coverings will continue to be required in most indoor public places in Wales, including on public transport, in shops and in healthcare settings

Wales is set to move into alert level zero from midnight 7 August, relaxing all restrictions on meeting with others and allowing all businesses to open.

As part of the move, face coverings will continue to be required in most indoor public places in Wales, including on public transport, in shops and in healthcare settings.

First minister Mark Drakeford noted however that moving to alert level zero does not mean the end of restrictions and a “free-for-all”, but it does mean there will be more freedoms with the confidence that there are still protections in place.

From midnight, premises which are open to the public and workplaces will have more flexibility about which measures they choose to take in minimising the risk of coronavirus.

Drake added: “Continue to keep our distance when we are out and work from home whenever we can. Wear a face mask, especially in crowded places, on public transport, in shops and in health and social care settings.

“Taking responsibility and working together means we can all do the things we’ve missed the most. We’ve all got a reason to keep Wales safe.”
