Easing of COVID-19 restrictions in Wales: reopening of gymnasiums, recreation centers and swimming pools | UK News

Gyms, recreation centers and swimming pools reopen in Wales today as COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed.

Organized indoor activities for kids and indoor adult fitness classes can also resume and two households can form an exclusive bubble to meet indoors.

The next review of the restrictions is due on May 13 – a week after the May 6 Senedd elections.

The current plan calls for the reopening of domestic hotels and tourist accommodation from May 17, but this will have to be confirmed by whoever forms the next government.

Prime Minister Mark Drakeford said last week that the public health situation in Wales continues to improve and the vaccination program “remains a success”.

“Thanks to the efforts of the people of Wales, we are able to further ease the restrictions, as we have said before, to allow more elements of normal life to return.

“However, the virus has not gone away.

“We all still have to take these vitally important steps, which we all now know so well, to protect ourselves and each other from this terrible virus – by isolating ourselves if we have symptoms, by accepting the offer of a COVID vaccine. , wash our hands regularly, cover our faces in closed public spaces, follow social distancing rules, limit the number of people we meet socially outside and only meet those with whom we live inside .

“By working together, by following these rules, the sooner we can get back to normalcy. Together we will continue to keep Wales safe.”

Wales has case rates of less than 15 per 100,000 – the lowest level of infection in the UK.

It is the third in the world in terms of vaccine distribution.
