First Minister confirms phased move to alert level one

Up to 30 people will be able to meet outdoors and large outdoor activities will be able to take place from Monday, as Wales moves into alert level one, First Minister Mark Drakeford announced today (Friday June 4 2021).

The move to alert level one will be phased, with outdoor events opening first. Ministers will review the public health situation again, ahead of June 21 2021, to determine whether indoor events can restart.

The first phase of the move to alert level one means that from Monday June 7 2021:

  • Up to 30 people can meet outdoors, including in private gardens, outdoor hospitality and public places. 
  • Larger outdoor organised gatherings and events, such as concerts, football matches and sporting activities, like organised running groups can go ahead for up to 4,000 people standing and 10,000 people seated. All organisers planning events and activities must undertake a full risk assessment and put in place measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, including social distancing.

The Welsh Government will consider further changes to the regulations on indoor activity later in the month, if public health conditions allow.

These include:

  • Rule of six for meeting indoors in private homes and holiday accommodation. 
  • Increased numbers for indoor organised gatherings and indoor events.
  • Opening ice skating rinks.
