Coronavirus regulations end in Wales

From Monday 30 May, the legal requirement to wear a face covering in health and care settings will end. This follows the outcome of the 3-weekly review of coronavirus regulations and completes a gradual, phased easing of legal restrictions since January.

Over the last 3 weeks the public health situation has continued to improve, with the latest results from the ONS Coronavirus Infection Survey showing the percentage of people testing positive for coronavirus in Wales is falling.

The number of Covid-19 related patients has also fallen to less than 700 and is at its lowest level since 28 December 2021, although the NHS remains under pressure from a combination of emergency and pandemic pressures with a significant number of staff absences.
