Wales will move to alert level zero at 6am on 7 August, following the latest review of the coronavirus regulations in Wales.


Please note, clubs MUST conduct a thorough risk assessment and should consult with their Local Authority Environmental Health and Safety Department and insurance provider when making any changes. 



At alert level zero:

  • There will be no legal limits on the number of people who can meet, including in private homes, public places or at events
  • Premises which are open to the public and workplaces will have more flexibility about which reasonable measures they take to minimise the risk of coronavirus. But these should be tailored to their risk assessment and their specific circumstances. Reasonable measures are defined by each premises in their risk assessment, and guidance is available below.
  • Face coverings will not be a legal requirement in hospitality settings where food and drink is served, but will continue to be required in most indoor public places such as professional shops, locker rooms, public transport. 
  • 7 August (from 00.01am), adults who are fully vaccinated and children and young people under 18, will no longer need to isolate if they are identified as close contacts of someone who has coronavirus.
  • Everyone must continue to isolate for 10 days if they have Covid-19 symptoms or if they have a positive test result.
