First Minister of Wales Announcement 8th January 2021

Following a formal review of the alert level four lockdown restrictions, which were introduced at midnight on 19 December, all the measures will remain in place.

This means non-essential retail, hospitality venues, licensed premises and leisure facilities will remain closed.

The measures will be strengthened to close all showrooms. They will still be able to operate click and collect arrangements.

The Welsh Government is also reviewing whether major supermarkets and retailers need to put additional measures in place to protect people in store and what else employers need to do to protect people in the workplace and support people to work from home.

The First Minister is reminding people that in the current lockdown people must:

  • Stay at home.
  • Work from home if you can.
  • Keep a 2m distance from others.
  • Wear a face covering in all indoor public places.
  • Not meet anyone outside your immediate household or support bubble.
