Wales Lockdown Update - June 21

On 7th June, there were further changes to the rules on what we can and can't do in Wales. 
Here’s what we know:

  • 30 people can meet outdoors including in parks and public spaces, beer gardens and other outdoor hospitality as well as private gardens.
  • Three households are able to meet form extended households, which means that three families can now meet indoors. A fourth home made up of only a single adult, or single adult with caring responsibilities, is allowed to join an extended household.
  • Organised outdoor events can now take place with up to 4000 people standing, or 10000 people sitting.
  • Travel abroad is still only advised for essential purposes – Mark Drakeford is advising everyone to stay in Wales this year.
  • Hugging is not quite allowed yet except for those in extended households.  Extended households can have close contact indoors, however if you are meeting with anyone else outside or in a hospitality setting, social distancing should remain in place.

With the delta variant rising across the UK, people are still asked to be vigilant and continue to follow good hand hygiene and social distancing where possible.  

All adults in Wales are now eligible to receive their covid vaccination – if you are in Wrexham or Flintshire and haven’t currently received an invitation for your first dose, you can book online for your local vaccination centre using the following link.
