The Welsh government has given more details of how lockdown restrictions are to be lifted in the coming days and weeks.

From Monday (13 July) the following will be able to open, subject to following guidance about coronavirus-safe ways to operate:

  • Hairdressing salons and barbershops, including mobile hairdressers.
  • Pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes outdoors.
  • Outdoor cinemas.
  • Indoor visitor attractions, but a small number of underground visitor attractions will remain closed for the time being because of the higher risks associated with these environments.
  • Places of worship. Faith leaders can begin to gradually resume services when they are ready to do so safely.

The Welsh government is also making changes to the regulations to allow larger gatherings of up to 30 people outdoors only where these are organised and supervised by a responsible person for sports and other leisure activities and classes.

This will allow sports and leisure activities, such as fitness and dance classes to take place outdoors, as well as collective worship.

From 20 July, playgrounds, community centres and outdoor gyms will be able to reopen gradually over the following weeks as and when safety checks and mitigations are put in place.

The government is also calling on other businesses and sectors to prepare for re-opening from 27 July:

  • Close contact services, including nail and beauty salons and businesses providing tanning services, massages, body piercings, tattooing, electrolysis or acupuncture.
  • Indoor cinemas, museums, galleries and archive services.
  • Tourist accommodation with shared facilities, such as camping sites. Opening would be from 25 July.
  • Reopening the housing market fully.

The government also said that provided the reopening of outdoor hospitality goes well, and the state of the virus allows, indoor opening for pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants will resume from 3 August.

A final decision about reopening these sectors will depend on conditions and feedback from the initial opening of the tourism industry, indoor attractions and hairdressing sector.
