COVID-19 Update 20th March 2021
No 10pm curfew for bars - but other restrictions will apply:
We could hear on April 22 when outdoor hospitality can restart:
Much longer wait for indoor drinking:
There will no longer be a 10pm curfew for pubs, bars and restaurants in Wales when restrictions are lifted - but only if you want to drink or eat outside.
Customers looking forward to an indoor tipple or meal will have to wait ‘much longer’ before they can venture inside, according to the Welsh Government’s updated Coronavirus Control Plan for bars and other hospitality venues revealed on Friday.
The report outlines how hospitality businesses will have to operate once they are allowed to reopen in Wales.
There will be no 10pm curfew but there will still be strict rules on numbers, drinking, table service and social distancing.
If Covid cases stay low ministers will consider reopening outdoor facilities for pubs, restaurants and an announcement on this is expected at a lockdown review on April 22.
This does not mean bars will get the green light to open on that date but it is the day when ministers will announce details of the phased reopening of outdoor hospitality.
As for indoor hospitality - that won’t be until rates are very low and vaccines are rolled out to more of the Welsh population, according to the plan.
When time is eventually called on lockdown, bars, both indoor and out, will have to continue to collect contact details;
restrict numbers; provide table service only and ensure, like before, social distancing arrangements are in place.
