WSA Coronavirus Update Christmas 2020
The Welsh Government has announced that businesses in Wales, including leisure and fitness facilities will be required to close at the end of trading on the 24th December 2020. Hospitality businesses will have to close at 6pm on Christmas Day.
A “stay at home” alert level 4 lockdown will be in force in Wales from the 28th December 2020. Including restrictions on household mixing and travel.
This will be for an initially unspecified period, with regular reviews of the measures and incidence of Coronavirus here in Wales. Full details will be published over the coming days.
Measures to allow families to meet over Christmas will remain in place, however the First Minister has advised that mixing is kept to a minimum where possible and that only two households should form a “bubble”.
This is an all Wales approach, though Welsh Government does have the power to move regions of Wales through the tiers separately should conditions require.
The Welsh Government’s Coronavirus Control Plan was published on Monday of this week, and the document outlines the measures in place at each tier of lockdown in Wales. The document also outlines the thresholds at which the Government will consider moving into, or out of a lockdown tier.
The Coronavirus Control Plan is available here and provides some insight into lockdown measures we are likely to see well into 2021 : https://gov.wales/coronavirus-control-plan-alert-levels-wales
