On Monday a number of restrictions were eased including:

Dr Giri Shankar, incident director for the novel coronavirus outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: "While this easing of restrictions following the declining number of positive cases is welcome, we would remind the general public that coronavirus is still circulating in our communities and a large number of people have not been fully vaccinated.

"It is therefore vital that people observe social distancing, where face coverings when in indoor spaces, and wash hands regularly. These actions will help to prevent transmission of the virus.

"As schools return please do not send your child to school if they are unwell, even if you are not sure if they have coronavirus.

“"When you take your child to school, always keep your distance from other parents, wear a face covering, and don’t stay around and chat. Please don’t invite other children or their parents to your home to play or stay indoors, even if they are in the same bubble at school. We need to continue to limit the numbers of people we meet socially to minimise spread of the virus.

"Welsh Government restrictions state that you should not go into any other household or mix indoors with other people who you don’t live with. Currently a maximum of six people from two households can meet outdoors, including in private gardens. Please continue to work from home if at all possible."

The Welsh Government also announced last week that gyms and leisure centres will be able to open from May 3 - instead of 10 May - while two households can "bubble up" to meet indoors from the same date. Wedding receptions outdoors for up to 30 people will be allowed from April 26, also moving forward a week.
