Bars, Restaurants & Cafes

From 26th December 2021

  • Meet no more than 5 other people at a café, restaurant, pub or other public premises (unless with your household of a larger number). This applies to both outdoor and indoor areas of the premises.

  • Wear a face covering (unless you have a reasonable excuse not to wear a face covering) in all indoor public places, including when not seated in a pub, café or restaurant.

 

When will I need to wear a face covering?

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

Wearing face coverings is a legal requirement in all indoor public places, including on 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.

Wear a face covering (unless you have a reasonable excuse not to wear a face covering) in all indoor public places, including when not seated in a pub, café or restaurant.

Yes. Alert Level Two states that 2 metre social distancing is required in all public premises in Wales.

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.

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.
