When the firebreak ends next Monday, there will be a new set of national measures, which will replace the previous local restrictions.
From next Monday, two households will be able to join together to form a bubble – to help keep everyone as safe as possible at home, only people from your own household or your extended household can meet at home.
Beyond November 9, there will be new arrangements to meet indoors in other settings, such as pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants.
In relation to organised activity, up to 15 people can take part in an indoors activity and up to 30 in outdoors activity, providing all social distancing, hand hygiene and other covid safety measures are followed.
- Schools will reopen as normal from next Monday.
- Working from home will become even more important.
- All business premises, which have been shut since October 23, will be able to reopen on November 9.
- Local authority services will resume, reflecting local circumstances.
- And places of worship will be able to reopen.
- There will be no travel restrictions inside Wales but during the month-long lockdown in England, travel will not be permitted outside Wales without a reasonable excuse.
We still have a week left of the firebreak lockdown – this is a week to make a real difference to the course of this virus; to prevent our NHS from being overwhelmed and to save lives.
