Review of the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restriction) (No.5) (Wales) Regulations 2020
9 April 2021
First Minister Mark Drakeford MS
- Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No. 5) (Wales) Regulations 2020 have today been amended in a number of areas.
Following my Written Statement on 1 April, the regulations now provide for a number of restrictions to be lifted from 12 April. These are alongside the welcome return of all children and students to face-to-face learning on the same day.
From Monday 12 April:
- All non-essential retail can reopen.
- All close contact services can resume, including mobile services.
- Travel restrictions within the UK and Common Travel Area will be lifted. People will still not be allowed to travel internationally without a reasonable excuse.
- Restrictions on political canvassing are removed, subject to canvassers doing so safely.
- Wedding ‘show-arounds’ by appointment are allowed.
My Written Statement on 1 April also set out my intention to provide for further easements during the next review cycle from 22 April. Because community rates of coronavirus across Wales continue to decrease and hospital pressures are easing, I am able to bring forward some of our plans by a week,subject to the public health situation remaining favourable.These changes remain consistent with the cautious and phased approach set out in the updated Coronavirus Control Plan: Revised Alert Levels in Wales (March 2021).
From Monday 26 April:
• Outdoor attractions, including funfairs and theme parks, will be allowed to reopen.
• Outdoor hospitality can resume, including at cafes, pubs and restaurants. Indoor hospitality will remain closed except for takeaways.
• Organised outdoor activities for adults for up to 30 people can again take place.
• Weddings receptions can take place outdoors, but will also be limited to 30 people
From Monday 3 May:
• Gyms, fitness facilities, leisure centres and swimming pools can reopen. This will include individual or one-to-one training, but not group exercise classes.
• Extended households will be permitted (an exclusive bubble of two house.
End of Statement.
PLEASE HEED THE ADVICE HOPEFULLY IT WILL SHORTEN THE LOCKDOWN AND WE WIL ALL SEE EACH OTHER SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.
WORKING TOGETHER TO STOP SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS
By working together, we’ll keep Pembrokeshire and Wales safe.
That’s the message from the Test, Trace, Protect (TTP) team set up at Pembrokeshire County Council.
Some 138 members of Council staff are being trained to enable them to be deployed to the TTP team if required to help stop the spread of coronavirus across Wales.
With lockdown restrictions being further eased it is now even more important that anyone showing any symptoms of coronavirus gets themselves tested.
Testing and contact tracing will be vital to prevent the spread of coronavirus as we come out of lockdown and find a way to live alongside the virus for the foreseeable future.
We must all play our part, including observing social distancing guidelines and washing hands regularly.
It is important to be aware that even though most people will experience mild symptoms of coronavirus, the virus can still be passed on to others who could develop serious illness.
The symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a high temperature,
- a new, continuous cough,
- loss of or changes in smell or taste (anosmia)
You must self-isolate as soon as the symptoms develop and seek an urgent test.
This will help keep others well, save lives and assist our health services and economy.
Anyone experiencing Coronavirus symptoms can apply for atest by visiting www.gov.wales/coronavirus, or by calling 119.
Symptomatic critical workers, can get a test by speaking to their employer or contacting the local Covid Enquiries team on 0300 303 8322 or by emailing CovidEnquiries.email@example.com
Anyone testing positive for coronavirus must isolate for seven days from symptom onset, with members of their household isolating for 14 days until the risk of passing on further infection has gone.
Combined these simple but effective actions will help ensure the virus does not spread.
Anyone who has a positive coronavirus test will be contacted by a team of contact tracers, and asked for details of everyone they have had close contact with while they have had symptoms.
People who have been in close contact will be advised to self-isolate for 14 days to further prevent spread of the virus.
No other channels will be used by the Test, Trace, Protect team. They will never ask you for payment or request any financial information, bank details or passwords.
Pembrokeshire County Council Leader, Cllr David Simpson, said: “Coronavirus has not gone away and it is more important than ever that we work together to help stop the spread of the virus.
“That means self-isolating and getting tested if you have symptoms and self-isolating if advised to do so by the Test, Trace, Protect team.
“These measures are in place to help keep Pembrokeshire and Wales safe. Please follow them.”
