Coronavirus lockdown restrictions continue to be eased in different stages across the UK, with significant changes in Wales taking hold from the weekend and in England from Monday.
Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford has said the country’s “stay local” requirement will be lifted on Saturday, meaning there will be no travel restrictions within Wales since it entered lockdown on December 20.
People can also stay in self-contained holiday accommodation from the same day, but an “all-Wales travel area” in place until April 12 means people cannot travel in or out of the country for at least another two weeks without a reasonable excuse, like work.
But the relaxations are not to be taken advantage of by people living elsewhere in the UK – with England, Scotland and Northern Ireland still under lockdowns.
