A short, sharp “circuit breaker” or “fire-break” will be introduced across Wales at the end of this week to help regain control of coronavirus. This means that a series of restrictive measures will be in place for from 6pm Friday 23 October until the start of Monday 9 November 2020.

There are five main things:

  • people must stay at home, except for very limited purposes;
  • people must not visit other households or meet other people they do not live with;
  • certain businesses and venues, including bars, restaurants and most shops must close;
  • [secondary schools will be closed for an additional week after half term, although primary schools and childcare settings will remain open;
  • face coverings continue to be mandatory in the indoor public spaces that remain open (subject to certain exemptions and exceptions), including on public transport and in taxis.
