Wales has now entered a 17-day ‘firewall’ lockdown which will last 17 days until Monday 9 November.

Everyone is expected to stay at home as much as possible, non-essential businesses will close and high schools will close for those in grades 9 and up. Read the full announcement here.

Mr Drakeford said it was essential to act now to curb the rising rates of coronavirus in Wales.

At a press conference on Friday, he attacked people who claim the virus is just a hoax.

“There are those who seek to persuade us that the risk of coronavirus is just a hoax; that it is a mild disease that does no harm, ”he said.

“They are not facing the families of those who died this week who will never see their loved ones again or speak to their loved ones again.

“They will never face the hundreds more people who will die in Wales unless we act now to bring this deadly disease under control. “

  • Residents of Wales are urged to stay in their homes until Monday 9 November
  • All non-essential retail, leisure, hospitality and tourism businesses will close, as was the case during the March lockdown
  • Community centers, libraries and recycling centers will also all be closed and places of worship will be closed except for funerals or wedding ceremonies.
  • Primary and special schools will normally reopen after mid-term, but secondary schools will only reopen to students in grades 7 and 8 during the second week of the firebreak.
  • No gatherings will be allowed either indoors or outdoors with people from other households, the only exceptions being adults living alone and single parents who may join another household for assistance.

The Welsh government’s decision to ban supermarkets from selling non-essential products has been widely criticized. Despite this, Health Minister Vaughan Gething has said he will not reverse the policy.

Dr Robin Howe, Incident Director for the Response to the Novel Coronavirus Outbreak at Public Health Wales, said: ‘We urge the public to abide by the new rules, which are essential to help us regain control of the virus, to protect the NHS and to save. lives.

“Although national and local measures have made a difference, more action is now needed. Cases continue to rise in Wales, hospital admissions are increasing, including those in intensive care, and sadly the number of people dying from the virus.

“Under the rules, people have to stay in their homes, except for very limited purposes. They should not visit other households or meet other people with whom they do not live.

“Some businesses and places, including bars, restaurants and most stores have to close.

“High schools will offer online learning only during the week after midterm, except for children in grades 7 and 8. Primary schools and daycares will remain open.

“Face masks remain compulsory in indoor public spaces which remain open, subject to certain exemptions and exceptions, including on public transport and in taxis.”
