The Welsh Government announced new measures to help keep Wales safe.

These will be introduced from 6am on Boxing Day (Sunday, 26th December 2021).

Please ensure appropriate measures taken including precautions, testing (PCR if symptomatic) and isolation as per current guidance.

  1. Wear a face covering (unless you have a reasonable excuse not to wear a face covering) in all indoor public places, including when not seated in a pub, café or restaurant.
  2. Meet no more than 5 other people at a café, restaurant, pub or other public premises (unless with your household of a larger number). This applies to both outdoor and indoor areas of the premises.
  3. Work from home if you can.
  4. Self-isolate for 10 days you test positive for COVID-19.  If you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive and you are aged 18 or over and not fully vaccinated, you must also self-isolate for 10 days.
