Pubs and restaurants in Wales reopen indoors Published Date: 03/08/2020

From today (3 August) pubs, cafes and restaurants in Wales will be able to serve people indoors with the BBC reporting that people have spoken of their excitement and anxiety about socialising again as lockdown rules are further relaxed in Wales.

The further relaxation of lockdown restrictions also include:

  • groups of up to 30 people can meet outdoors
  • children will be able to play with their friends
  • Bingo halls and bowling alleys will also reopen on Monday

First Minister Mark Drakeford is reported to have said he wanted to allow people to enjoy socialising "while they can" although the new coronavirus restrictions in the north west of England had given him "pause for thought" before announcing changes to daily life in Wales.
