First Minister to hold lunchtime briefing today to give latest regulations review update for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

First Minister Mark Drakeford will today set out changes to the coronavirus regulations in Wales making it easier for families and friends to meet outdoors.

In a trail from Welsh Government they say the First Minister will say from Monday (August 3rd), up to 30 people will be able to meet outdoors and children under 11 will no longer have to maintain a 2m distance from each other or from adults – in line with the latest scientific evidence about lower transmission rates in this age group.

Pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes will be able to re-open indoors from Monday, as will indoor bowling alleys, auction houses and bingo halls.

They say the First Minister will thank businesses for working with the Welsh Government and introducing new measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus but he will also warn action will be taken against those who ignore the measures designed to keep Wales safe.

There has been nothing specific to Wrexham mentioned in the ‘trail’ information.

The full announcements and Q&A session will be viewable live via some television channels, but in its entirety via the video feed that will appear on the @WelshGovernment twitter account just before 12:30pm.
