First Minister of Wales to set out plans to ease restrictions

Written by on 13th January 2022

The First Minister will today (Friday) set out how Wales plans to move back to alert level zero if the public health situation continues to improve.

Mark Drakeford will set out the two-week plan to ease the alert level two restrictions which have been in place since Boxing Day at his press conference.

The Welsh Government is able to start removing the protections put in place in response to the omicron wave, thanks to the support of people across Wales and the successful booster campaign – more than 1.75m people have had the extra booster dose.

The move to alert level zero will be phased, with restrictions on outdoor activities being removed first.

The First Minister will hold a press conference at 12.15pm and you can hear it on GTFM.
