Coronavirus Advice and Guidance

You are reminded about the importance of social distancing, good hand hygiene and the need to respect the places and communities you visit. This includes checking local information about the places you want to visit, going somewhere else if a place is already busy or car parks are full, making sure litter is not left behind and showing respect for local residents. 

From Monday 3rd August

  • The restrictions preventing more than two households or extended households meeting outdoors will be changed to allow up to 30 people to meet outdoors. Physical distancing must be maintained at all times
  • Pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes will be able to re-open indoors, as will indoor bowling alleys, auction houses and bingo halls
  • Licensed wedding venues will be able to re-open to provide wedding ceremonies. However, indoor receptions will not be able to take place for the time being
  • The guidance will be updated to relax the position on children under 11 having to maintain a 2 metres distance from each other and from adults. This reflects the scientific evidence, which shows the risk of transmission is lower among this age group. However, it is important older children and young adults continue to follow social distancing and the other measures to keep them safe

From Monday 10th August:

  • Swimming pools, indoor fitness studios, gyms, spas and indoor leisure centres will be able to re-open. Pembrokeshire Leisure is planning a phased re-opening from the 17th August
  • Children's indoor play areas will be able to open

What else is being considered?

If conditions remain stable over the next week, people will be able to see more of their family and friends as part of the next review of Wales’ coronavirus restrictions, First Minister Mark Drakeford announced today (Fri 14th August).

The intention is that from Saturday 22nd August:

  • Up to four households will be able to join together to form a single extended household
  • A meal following a wedding, civil partnership or funeral will be allowed for up to 30 people indoors if social distancing can be maintained

However, the Welsh Government will not be making any changes to the rules on people meeting indoors with people who aren’t part of their household or extended household. This means that people should only visit pubs, restaurants or other places indoors with people from their household or extended household.


Essential Health Guidance 

  • The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of a new continuous cough and / or high temperature or a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell. If you have these symptoms, however mild, or have received a positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test results, then you should immediately self-isolate stay at home for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. If you live with others, all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days.
  • You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access you should call NHS 111
  • If you have any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) you should arrange a test by visiting NHS.UK or contact 119 via telephone if you do not have internet access
  • Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, or hand sanitizer, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, before you eat or handle food, or when you get to work or arrive home
  • Cover your mouth and nose with disposable tissues when you cough or sneeze. If you do not have a tissue, sneeze into the crook of your elbow, not into your hand. Dispose of tissues into a disposable rubbish bag and immediately wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser
  • If you can, wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible, and where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet. You must wear a face covering on public transport (buses, trains and taxis) in Wales from 27th July. Social distancing, hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes, remain the most important measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people
