Christina Rees, MP for Neath, has welcomed the news confirmed by the First Minister that Wales will begin a phased move to alert level one from Monday. This means up to 30 people will be able to meet outdoors and large organised outdoor activities will be able to take place, such as music events and sporting activities. Additionally, from Monday the size of extended households can increase to up to three households, and a further single adult household is also able to join.
Ahead of June 21, Ministers will review the public health situation again and determine whether indoor events can restart from this date. This two-stage approach will enable more people to be vaccinated and receive both doses before the resuming of indoor events, in light of concerns surrounding the spread of the delta variant of the virus.
The full list of changes to regulations from Monday 7 June, and the changes to be considered later in the month can be found here: https://gov.wales/first-minister-confirms-phased-move-alert-level-one.
Christina Rees, MP for Neath, said:
“It is brilliant news that from Monday we can begin the phased move to alert level one in Wales, and enjoy this fabulous summer weather as outdoor events restart.
“It’s really important that we continue to take steps to protect ourselves in light of the new delta variant of the virus, but rates across Wales remain low and the vaccination programme continues to be rolled out at the quickest rate in the country.
“This phased moved to alert level one wouldn’t be possible without the efforts of people in Neath and across Wales in following the rules to keep each other safe and stop the spread, so thank you and please do take up your vaccine when offered.”
