New measures introduced for hospitality and retail businesses - FAQ's (COVID-19)

All licensed premises in Wales are no longer allowed to serve alcohol after 10pm, and must close by 10.20pm.  Licensed premises now have to provide table service only. Off-licences, including supermarkets and convenience stores, also have to stop selling alcohol at 10pm. Online deliveries made by supermarkets and take-away delivery services will be permitted after 10pm but must not include alcohol.

The new measures are part of a package of co-ordinated actions to control the spread of coronavirus, which are being introduced across the UK and came into force in Wales at 6pm on 23 September and a detailed list of frequently asked questions is available.
