Pubs in Wales have also been sent a “clear signal” to prepare to open indoors from August 3 by the First Minister as he announced the latest round of lockdown changes.
The measures will be phased in every Monday over the next review cycle and will see large parts of Wales’ visitor, hospitality, leisure and tourism industries re-open.
Mark Drakeford also announced that “provided the re-opening of outdoor hospitality goes well and the state of the virus allows, indoor opening for pubs, bars, cafes, and restaurants will resume from August 3”.
Larger gatherings of up to 30 people will now be permitted provided they are outdoors “where these are organised and supervised by a responsible person for sports and other leisure activities and classes,” a Welsh Government spokesman said.
As expected he confirmed pubs, cafes, and restaurants will open outdoors and hairdressers, barbers and mobile hairdressers will re-open by appointment from Monday (July 13).
Playgrounds and community centres will open from July 20 ahead of the school summer holidays.
The wider beauty industry, including tattooists, was told to begin to prepare to re-open from July 27 if conditions allow.
How pubs in Wales will look from Monday

What headteachers say about schools re-opening in September
Headteachers say they are looking forward to welcoming pupils back full-time next term, but are divided in their support for the re-opening plans announced by Education Minister Kirsty Williams.
One headteacher said returning must not be optional, unless there is a medical reason. She urged the Welsh Government to change its decision not to fine parents for keeping their children at home.
Jane Jenkins, head of Moorland Primary in Cardiff, said not penalising parents who choose not to send their children back in September "undermines the message that schools are safe".
Mrs Jenkins, who is chair of the Cardiff Primary Headteachers' Association, said she will ask parents their reason for keeping children at home and will not provide online learning for those staying away unless they are doing so for a sound medical reason.
Some schools said without further guidance on whether school will be compulsory they have drawn up three or four timetables for different scenarios. Some have planned for 25%, 50% and 100% attendance.
There are also concerns about how "contact groups" of 30 pupils will work in secondary schools where there are subject options. Read more here about what they have to say.
People in England might have to wear face coverings in shops
Face coverings could be made mandatory in shops in England, Boris Johnson has hinted, as he urged Britons to go back to work if they can.
The Prime Minister said he wanted to be "stricter" on insisting people wear mouth and nose coverings in confined spaces where they are meeting people they do not normally see.
Downing Street is understood to be looking at the issue, amid suggestions new rules could be introduced within a few weeks.
Mr Johnson was pictured wearing a face covering for the first time during the pandemic while visiting businesses in his Uxbridge constituency on Friday.
And in an online question and answer session with the public, he said: "I do think we need to be stricter in insisting people wear face coverings in confined spaces where they are meeting people they don't normally meet.
"We are looking at ways of making sure that people really do have face coverings in shops, for instance, where there is a risk of transmission."
Mr Johnson said he wanted people to go back to work "if they can" as he expressed a desire for people to "lead their lives more normally".
He said: "I think everybody has sort of taken the 'stay at home if you can' - I think we should now say, well, 'go back to work if you can'. Because I think it's very important that people should try to lead their lives more normally.
"I want to see more people feeling confident to use the shops, use the restaurants, and get back into work - but only if we all follow the guidance."
Face coverings are currently compulsory on public transport and in hospitals in England, but are only advised in other enclosed public spaces where social distancing is not possible and where "you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet".
Restrictions that have eased in England
Outdoor swimming pools, water parks, outdoor theatres and grassroots sport are allowed to start again from Saturday, July 11, ahead of more rule changes on Monday and more again at the end of the month.
The changes in England come a week after pubs, restaurants, cafes and hairdressers reopened and ahead of beauty salons reopening
There is still no date for venues such as theatres, bowling alleys and casinos to throw open their doors.
The travel rules also changed on Friday meaning people across the UK can now travel to dozens of countries without facing 14-days of quarantine when they return.
Portugal upset at not being on the list
Portugal's government will make "no attempt" to hide its disappointment at being left off a list of countries where travellers can avoid having to quarantine when arriving in England, the country's ambassador to the UK said.
The new rules came into force on Friday with the list including popular destinations such as Spain, Germany, France and Italy, but notably omitting Portugal.
Manuel Lobo Antunes wrote in The Daily Telegraph that Portugal was the first European country to receive a "Safe Travels Stamp", which the World Travel and Tourism Council gives in recognition of health standards amid the coronavirus pandemic.
He wrote: "In this context, as Portuguese ambassador to the UK, I make no attempt to hide my disappointment, or that of my government, in the fact that Portugal was not included on the list of countries whose travellers are exempt from quarantine on their return to the UK.
He added: "We feel the scientific arguments supporting the UK Government's decision, which we obviously respect, including data, models and other factors, were lacking in detail."
"The economic impact of the UK's decision to keep Portugal under quarantine is immense and there are fears it could be lasting if not scrapped at the next review in just over two weeks."
90% normality for holidays abroad
British tourists can expect to experience "90% of normality" as flights and holidays restart for the UK's biggest tour operator.
Andrew Flintham, managing director of TUI UK and Northern Ireland, said holidaymakers would need to be prepared for some changes as operations gradually begin again, but he was confident they would enjoy their trips.
Starting this weekend, the company will run a limited number of flights and holidays to the Spanish destinations of Ibiza, Lanzarote, Palma and Tenerife.
While new British quarantine rules mean travellers will no longer need to self-isolate when returning to or visiting the UK from certain countries, there are still foreign coronavirus regulations to consider.
From Monday, the Balearic Government has ruled that face masks must be worn on its islands at all times apart from at beaches, swimming pools and while doing sports activities.
Travellers arriving to Ibiza have to fill in health check forms ahead of arrival and will have their temperature screened at the airport.
Mr Flintham acknowledge people will need to observe local rules but will still "be able to enjoy the major amenities and the things that you really, really want".
He said: "The 90% or the 85% of the normality of your holiday is going to be there."
Violence in Serbia after lockdown was re-imposed
Police fired tear gas at hundreds of demonstrators who tried to storm Serbia's parliament on Friday as protests against the country's president continued.
Demonstrators - who were defying a ban on mass gatherings amid a spike in virus infections - threw bottles, rocks and flares at the police guarding the domed parliament building in central Belgrade.
Several people were arrested, and many reporters were injured, mainly in attacks by the demonstrators.
Some opposition leaders have said the violence was the work of far-right nationalist demonstrators controlled by the government - with an aim to discredit the peaceful protests that began in response to president Aleksandar Vucic's efforts to reimpose lockdown restrictions against Covid-19.
But they have mushroomed into an expression of wider frustration with his hard-line rule.
9,000 jobs to go at Emirates
The president of Emirates said the Middle Eastern airline is set to cut as many as 9,000 jobs because of the coronavirus pandemic.
It is the first time the world's biggest long-haul carrier has disclosed how many jobs will be lost.
Prior to the crisis, Emirates had 60,000 staff.
Sir Tim Clark said the airline had already cut a tenth of its staff but said: "We will probably have to let go of a few more, probably up to 15%."
The global airline industry has been severely impacted by coronavirus, with activity all but grinding to a halt.
