Your COVID-19 guide to Visiting Mid Wales

From 7th August 2021 Wales moves to Alert Level 0

7th August 2021

Wales will move into Alert Level 0 which will see the requirement for face coverings in hospitality settings, and rules over the number of people who can meet indoors lifted.

Face coverings will still be required in shops and on public transport.

Please be aware that some businesses may still ask you to wear face coverings to help protect their staff and other customers in certain parts of their premises as they have a legal duty to put in place measures to reduce risk - Please remain respectful of these requests and do not challenge staff.
You are still advised to:

  • Take a rapid lateral flow test at home before travelling and to bring kits to continue testing while on holiday.

  • Wash your hands regularly.

  • Always remain respectful of other visitors, staff and communities when visiting Mid Wales.


Booking Accommodation

All accommodation sectors are now able to reopen in Wales 

From 7th August 2021 there will be no legal limit on the number of people who can book holiday accommodation together.


Bars, Restaurants & Cafes

From 7th August 2021

No face coverings will be required in hospitality settings such as restaurants, pubs, cafes or nightclubs.


When will I need to wear a face covering?

Do I still need to keep 2m away from others?

Wearing face coverings is still a legal requirement in almost all indoor public places, including on almost all public transport and in shops and health and social care settings. The use of face coverings in education will be determined at a local level.

Face coverings will not be a legal requirement in hospitality settings, like restaurants, pubs and cafes, where food and drink is served. Those businesses may, however, still ask you to wear a face coverings in certain parts of the premises as they have a legal duty to put in place measures to reduce risks.

Physical distancing is a key way to stop coronavirus spreading. We advise people to exercise caution and think about physical distancing from people they don’t live with. Coronavirus is still circulating in the community and we would encourage everyone to think about how they can protect themselves and their loved ones. In any event, businesses and premises may require people to maintain physical distancing as part of the measures they are required to take to protect people from coronavirus.

Staying at least 2 metres away from people you do not live with makes a big difference in reducing the chances of the virus spreading. The closer we get and the longer we spend face-to-face with others, the greater the risk of catching the virus.

If you become infected keep your distance from other members of your household as much as possible, especially if they are clinically extremely vulnerable.

Most businesses, workplaces and other places are still likely to require some degree of physical distancing. There is still a legal requirement for such places to take reasonable measures to minimise the risk of exposure to coronavirus.
