Wales to move into alert level 1 from today with restrictions eased for hospitality


From today Wales has moved into alert level one, First Minister Mark Drakeford confirmed.

The first phase of this easing of restrictions from Monday June 7 means that up to 30 people can meet outdoors in hospitality venues, including gardens and public places and outdoor events able to resume.

Concerts, football matches and sporting activities can go ahead for up to 4,000 people standing and 10,000 people seated.

The new alert level one also means that the size of extended households can be increased to up to three households, and a further household with a single adult or single adult with caring responsibilities will also be able to join.

Ministers will review the public health situation again, ahead of June 21, to determine whether indoor events can restart.

All organisers planning events and activities must undertake a full risk assessment and put in place measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, including social distancing.

The Welsh Government will consider further changes to the regulations on indoor activity later in the month, if public health conditions allow.
