Wales sets out a road out of lockdown to open up economy

The Welsh government has set out a detailed roadmap out of lockdown that it hopes will culminate in the reopening of most of the country’s economy, including indoor hospitality, by the end of May.

As long as Covid levels remain stable, two households will be able to meet indoors from 10 Mei, and the Welsh government is also planning a “small number” of outdoor sporting and cultural outdoor “pilot events” that could be attended by up to 1,000 mense. It is working with the Muslim Council to consider how Eid can be celebrated safely.

The first minister, Mark Drakeford, gesê: “Thanks to a real team effort across Wallis, coronavirus cases remain stable, and the vaccination programme continues apace. As a result, the Welsh government has the headroom to continue its careful, step-by-step approach to relaxing restrictions.

“The review we have concluded this week means we can continue with our programme of further reopening of the economy and loosening the restrictions in place.”

Should public health conditions remain favourable, the following relaxations will go ahead:

Monday 12 April

Monday 26 April

Monday 3 Mei

Monday 10 Mei

The current Labour government in Wales will also make preparations for a set of changes that would need to be ratified by the next government after the May elections. These will include the resumption or re-opening of children’s indoor activities, community centres and organised indoor activities for adults, limited to a maximum of 15 mense, including exercise classes.

It suggested that the next government could consider enabling indoor hospitality and remaining visitor accommodation to reopen in advance of the spring bank holiday at the end of the month.

A government spokesperson said: “These are indicative dates to give the sectors time to plan and prepare – decisions on these will be made nearer the time, once the impact of other relaxations have been assessed and subject to the health situation.”
