Full list of lock changes expected to be announced in Wales today


Playgrounds, community centers and outdoor gymnasiums should receive the green light to reopen.The Welsh government is about to announce that further changes will take effect on Monday as the relaxation of coronavirus locking restrictions continues.

Prime Minister Mark Drakeford will hold a press conference Friday at 12:30 p.m. to announce the changes.

Speaking on BBC Radio Wales this morning, the Prime Minister said he plans to confirm the changes.

He said: “We are monitoring all the indicators closely and next week I think we will confirm today that playgrounds, community centers and outdoor gymnasiums can resume from Monday.

“We had another day yesterday when no deaths were reported from a coronavirus in Wales.

“This continues to demonstrate that, for the moment, everything is going in the right direction and we have the flexibility to move forward. “

Drakeford warned that if cases continue to fall in Wales, the outbreaks could continue.

He used the case of Melbourne, Australia as an example, which had to lock out due to a large increase in cases.

Future changes

For the future, the Welsh government has reserved a number of additional changes to the lock.

If the number of cases continues to go in the right direction, they said that as of July 27, businesses such as beauty salons, tattoo parlors and manicure salons should be allowed to reopen.

The display of occupied houses for rent or sale will resume on the housing market, while campsites and other accommodation with shared facilities may reopen from July 25.

Indoor cinemas, museums, galleries and archives are also slated to reopen from July 27.

Proposals will also be considered to allow the reopening of indoor hospitality such as pubs and restaurants from August 3.
