Lockdown to continue for further three weeks as pupils return to school

Stay-at-home restrictions will continue in Wales as the youngest pupils begin returning to school from Monday 22 February 2021.

Following the latest review of coronavirus restrictions, the Welsh Government also announced some minor changes to the current rules:

  • From Saturday 20 February, four people from two different households will be able to meet outdoors for socially distanced local exercise. This doesn’t apply to private gardens.
  • From March 1, the law will be changed to allow licensed wedding venues, such as visitor attractions and hotels, to re-open but only to perform wedding and civil partnership ceremonies.
  • Sport Wales will make arrangements for more of our talented athletes to resume training and playing.
  • With more people living and working in older people’s care homes being vaccinated, we will look again at our guidance for care home visiting.

The next three-week review of the regulations will also consider the restrictions around non-essential retail and close contact services.
