Rules on Face Coverings and Self-Isolation End in Wales

From today (28th March) face coverings are no longer legally required to be worn in shops or on public transport in Wales. Face-coverings are still legally required in health and social care settings and it is ‘strongly advised’ that they are worn in crowded areas.

In addition to the change in rules for face coverings, it is no longer a legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive for Covid in Wales. People who test positive and those with symptoms are still strongly advised to self-isolate, but it is no longer a legal requirement.

Businesses, organisations and workplaces are still legally required to carry out a coronavirus risk assessment and implement reasonable measures to reduce the risk of spreading the virus on their premises

The Welsh Government confirmed that all remaining restrictions will be removed on 18th April if the current public health situation remains stable.
