Review of regulations and new guidance

The Welsh Government has today (24/4) announced changes to the Covid regulations, as well as publishing new guidance – this follows the first statutory 3-week review of the emergency regulations. Links to the revised rules:-

As part of these changes, guidance on exercise has been published which provides greater clarity over type and duration of acceptable forms of exercise, and gives further advice on the use of travelling by vehicle for exercising. The guidance also acknowledges that people with specific health conditions or disabilities may benefit from outdoor exercise more than once a day, and lifts the restrictions in these circumstances:-

Framework

Also today (24/4), First Minister Mark Drakeford has published a framework and seven key questions to help lead Wales out of the coronavirus pandemic.

The framework will help to determine when the strict stay-at-home restrictions can begin to be relaxed in Wales and will help to find a way for people in Wales to live and work alongside coronavirus. It includes the development of a Wales-wide programme of surveillance, case identification, and contact tracing and highlights the importance of community testing to contain emerging coronavirus infections as and when restrictions are eased. The framework is based on three pillars:-

1.         The measures and evidence by which the current infection level and transmission rates for coronavirus in Wales will be judged.

2.         The principles by which proposed measures to ease the current restrictions will be evaluated, grounded in both scientific evidence and wider social and economic impacts.

3.         How surveillance and response system will be enhanced to enable close tracking of the virus as restrictions are eased.

The Welsh Government has worked closely with the rest of the UK throughout the pandemic and has shared the development of the framework with the Scottish, Northern Irish and the UK governments.

Centralised list of closures

Specific guidance on the Coronavirus Regulations in relation to rights of way and access land, along with a centralised list of links to individual Authority closures is now available on the Welsh Government website via the following links:-

Police Guidance on exercise

Following queries from stakeholders regarding the recent England-only publication from the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC) and the subsequent BBC news article that suggested it may be acceptable to drive farther afield for exercise, Welsh Government can confirm that the four police forces in Wales are not adopting this guidance.
