An update to the coronavirus regulations

From Saturday 27th of March the ‘stay local’ rule will be replaced by an interim all-Wales travel area, which will remain in place until April 12, subject to the public health situation. For the next two weeks, only those with a reasonable excuse, such as work, will be able to travel into or out of Wales. 

There is no change to the number of different households that can mix outdoors. Up to six people from two different households can meet and exercise outdoors but golf will remain in the following forms:

  • 2 balls (2 golfers from different households)
  • 3 balls (2 golfers from one household and 1 golfer from a different household)
  • 4 balls (2 golfers from one household and 2 golfers from another household)

Organised outdoor activities and sports for children and under-18s (by the 31st August 2021) can now take place. There is no limit on the number of children and young children that can attend, but organisers should be mindful of the space available. Our full guidance for organised outdoor junior activities can be found here.

Wales is moving out of alert level four, and now starting to move into level three. Welsh Ministers will consider further alert level three measures in the next review of the regulations.
