UPDATED 10 August 2021

Wales moved to Alert Level 0 on August 7th 2021.

This means that most current legal restrictions are being lifted and will move into guidance, but there are still some specific legal protections in place:

  • Everyone must continue to isolate for 10 days if they have Covid-19 symptoms or if they have a positive test result. If you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive and you are aged 18 or over and not fully vaccinated, you must also self-isolate for 10 days.
  • Face coverings will continue to be required in most indoor public places in Wales, including on public transport, in shops and in healthcare settings. There will be exemptions for people who cannot wear them, as there are currently. Guidance notes this requirement to continue wearing masks indoors includes gyms and leisure centres, apart from while exercising.
  • All those responsible for premises open to the public and workplaces must carry out a Covid risk assessment and continue to take reasonable measures to minimise the risk of exposure to coronavirus. Reasonable measures are defined by each premises in their risk assessment, and guidance is available below.

While many of the specific legal restrictions will be removed at Alert Level 0, there is still a clear requirement on all facilities and the workforce to undertake reasonable measures to not contribute to the spread of the virus. Welsh Government guidance for businesses and organisations is available here.

We will continue to update this guidance as and when there are any new developments.

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them
