The Welsh Government on Friday afternoon published a revision to the Coronavirus Control Plan, setting out a series of revisions in light of the changing situation in Wales.
The plan also sets out the steps that could be taken as we move from Alert Level 4 into Alert Level 3.
The updated Coronavirus Control Plan sets out the phased steps for moving from alert level 4 into alert level 3 as follows.
From Monday 22 March 2021:
- First phased opening of non-essential retail – restrictions on the sale of items will be lifted for shops, which are currently open

Ministers will confirm if the conditions allow for the following relaxations to come into force from Saturday 27th March 2021:
- Stay local requirement lifted, moving Wales into alert level 3
- First phased opening of the tourism sector as self-contained accommodation opens

- Libraries re-open.
From 12th April 2021 (if conditions allow):
- Full return to schools, colleges and other education

The following areas will be considered as part of the 22nd April review, if the public health situation continues to remain positive and vaccination rates continue to increase:
- Gyms, leisure and fitness facilities
- Outdoor attractions
- Outdoor hospitality
- Community centres
- Organised activities (30 outdoors, 15 indoors)
