The public health context in Wales remains favourable, with cases falling and our vaccination programme continues to go from strength to strength.
Because meeting outdoors continues to be lower risk than meeting indoors, we are able to bring forward changes to allow any six people to meet outdoors.
This will provide more opportunities for people, especially young people, to meet outdoors with their friends. This will undoubtedly have a significant positive impact on people’s wellbeing.
I’m also pleased to confirm outdoor hospitality will be allowed to reopen from Monday 26 April. These changes will help the hospitality sector recover after a difficult 12 months.”
