From Boxing Day new measures will be in place in Wales

A further statement has been made by the First Minister today, regarding measures that will come into effect from 26th December.  These additional measures (to those announced last Friday) mainly impact members with in-store cafes or who operate coffee shops or quick service restaurants. From 26 December:

 

  • A general requirement of 2m social distancing in all premises open to the public and workplaces, where reasonable.
  • The rule of 6 will apply to gatherings in regulated premises, such as hospitality, cinemas and theatres.
  • All licensed premises will need to take additional measures to protect customers and staff, including table service and collecting contact details.
  • Face coverings will be required in hospitality settings at all times apart from when seated.
  • Large events will not be allowed indoors or outdoors. The maximum number of people who can gather at an indoor event will be 30 and 50 outdoors.
  • There will be an exception for team sports, up to 50 spectators will be able to gather, in addition to those taking part. There is also an exception for events involving children.

Further guidance can be found on the Welsh Government website here.
