Wales Lockdown Update - April 21

Whilst Mark Drakeford is urging people to continue to be cautious, there is positive news on the horizon as further dates have been announced regarding the country opening up.

Here’s what we know as of 1st April 2021:

Monday 12th April

  • Travel into  and out of Wales from the rest of the UK is allowed
  • Non-essential retail and close contact services to reopen

Monday 26th April

  • Outdoor hospitality, including cafes, pubs and restaurants will reopen
  • Outdoor attractions to reopen

Monday 3rd May

  • Organised outdoor activities for up to 30 people

Monday 10th May

  • Extended households can form again – two households can have contact indoors
  • Monday 17th May
  • Community centres to reopen
  • Organised indoor activities for up to 15 people

The government have said that it would consider the reopening of indoor hospitality after 17th May 2021, possibly in time for the Spring Bank Holiday at the end of the month, however this will remain under review.

The above dates are subject to covid cases remaining low across Wales and may be subject to change after 6th May, depending on the outcome of the Senedd vote.

Whilst we all look forward to the restrictions lifting, we know that clients who have been shielding will be cautious about a ‘return to normality’.  It’s important that the most vulnerable people in our community are not left feeling isolated, whilst everything opens up around them.

We want to reassure you that we will continue to provide the safe, high quality care that you expect from us.  We specialise in providing quality companionship visits that can aid the emotional needs of our clients, as well as monitoring other aspects of their health and wellbeing.

We will keep you updated as and when further restrictions are lifted.
