New Wales Rules

Since December 20, the rules have been changed, meaning it`s now the law to work from home if you can. In response to the rise in coronavirus cases in Wales, a tightening of the rules for social gatherings in Wales as well as mandatory face coverings is announced. From 14 September 2020, a maximum of six people can gather indoors at the same time (children under 11 years old not included). You must belong to the same exclusive household group or bubble. The rule of six does not apply to outdoor meetings in Wales. Social gatherings of more than six people are also banned in England from this date (indoors or outdoors). In Scotland, a maximum of six people from two households can gather indoors or outdoors. Also from 14. September All Welsh residents over the age of 11 (except those exempt) must wear a face covering in public spaces such as shops. This does not currently apply to pubs and restaurants. You can, and international travel is allowed, although local rules and quarantine apply. The rules state that everyone should work from home “whenever possible,” including volunteering or charitable work.

You can check the current rates in your municipality on the following website coronaviruscymru.wales/local-authority-table – the corresponding column is overwritten by â7 days case per 100kâ. Covid-19 rates in a local area can change very quickly, so local statistics need to be reviewed regularly. If you have reintroduced congregational singing and the case rate in your area exceeds 50 cases per 100,000, you will unfortunately have to suspend congregational singing again. Indoor courtyards are limited to a maximum of 30 people, but as social distancing rules apply, that could mean smaller classes, again starting Dec. 26. Since that first lockdown, the Welsh government has been required by law to review its Covid rules every week. It seemed that this week would be the last of these tri-weekly exams. Coronavirus rules in the UK restrict travel abroad. In addition, a number of countries, including France, have announced that they are restricting travel from the UK in response to concerns about the spread of a new strain of the virus. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) will advise you on travel restrictions and entry requirements for different countries. Prime Minister Mark Drakeford announces that the governments of the four British nations have agreed on a wide range of measures for the whole of the UK to help people come together in the safest way possible during the Christmas period.

These include easing travel restrictions between the four countries and between levels to give households a window to reunite between December 23 and 27, 2020, and up to three households can form an exclusive “bubble” that meets at home during this time. Any Christmas bubble can gather at home, in a place of worship or in an outdoor public place, but the existing more restrictive rules for hospitality and meetings in other places are maintained during this period. It`s been two long years of lockdowns, ceasefires, restrictions and mandatory face coverings, but almost all coronavirus rules and regulations in Wales will be gone by Monday. From Monday, face coverings will no longer be mandatory in shops or public transport in Wales, although they are still mandatory in health and social care facilities. The complete repeal of regulations aimed at protecting the public from the coronavirus has been delayed by a new strain. What exactly has changed since this week?
