In its 21 day review the Welsh Government announced that:

Self-contained accommodation without shared facilities will reopen from Saturday 11 July.

From Monday 13 July the following sectors and businesses 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, with the exception of a small number of underground visitor attractions.

– Places of worship. Faith leaders can begin to gradually resume services when they are ready to do so safely.

– Larger gatherings outdoors of up to 30 people where these are organised and supervised by a responsible person. This will allow sports and leisure activities, such as fitness and dance classes, to take place outdoors, as well as collective worship. This will include charities, businesses, and sports clubs and a risk assessment will need to be carried out.

– In the second week, from 20 July, The Welsh government will remove the current restrictions on playgrounds and outdoor gyms. These will reopen gradually over the following weeks as and when safety checks and other measures are put in place.

The Government will also publish guidance to support community centres to restart more public services at the discretion of local authorities. This will enable them to operate in a coronavirus-safe way.

In the third week, The Government will look again at the latest health advice and evidence and consider the following areas for reopening from 27 July. A final decision will depend on the health conditions at the time and the necessary preparations being in place:

– Close contact services, including nail and beauty salons and businesses providing tanning services, massages, body piercings, tattooing, electrolysis or acupuncture

– All remaining tourist accommodation, which has been closed because of the additional risks of shared facilities, such as camping sites. Opening would be from 25 July in this case.

– Indoor cinemas, museums, galleries and archive services.

– Fully reopening the housing market to allow viewings in occupied properties.

The next formal review is of the regulation is due by 30 July.
