Cautiously treading

Still remains....

The Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford has beaten Boris Johnson to announcing lockdown changes from Monday. The PM is making his announcement on Sunday evening.

The scientific document underpinning the changes says R is estimated to be 0.7-0.9 in Wales. The UK-wide estimate is between 0.5 and 0.9.

The modest changes in Wales are:

  • Local exercise more than once a day, starting and ending at home and not going a significant distance from home

  • Starting the process of safely reopening libraries and recycling centres

  • Allowing garden centres to open with physical distancing in place

In a statement Mr Drakeford said: "The Welsh Government is guided by the latest scientific evidence, advice from our Chief Medical Officer and the latest public health advice. The virus remains a very serious threat to us all and we cannot be complacent in any way. For that reason, the stay-at-home regulations will remain in place in Wales.
