FM to announce schools return date

Written by on 29th January 2021

The First Minister is today expected to confirm alert level four lockdown restrictions will remain in place in Wales for the next three weeks. While the situation in Wales is improving, lockdown restrictions must continue for another three weeks to allow the NHS to recover.
He will also indicate that the youngest learners in primary school could begin returning to school after the February half term, if rates of coronavirus continue to fall.The Welsh Government will work with schools and education partners on a phased and flexible return to school after 22 February, if the public health situation continues to improve. Rates of coronavirus across Wales have fallen below 200 cases per 100,000 people for the first time since early November. And every day, thousands more people receive their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine – the latest figures show almost 11% of the population have been vaccinated.

You can hear more from the First Minister about this on GTFM at 12:15pm today and on the Welsh Government’s social media outlets.
