    The two major Covid restrictions being looked at in this week's Welsh Government lock

    The Welsh Government's three-weekly review of Covid restrictions takes place this week, for the first time since the nation moved back to Alert Level 0.

    Members of the cabinet will be briefed by experts throughout the week to look at the latest data, projections and what could change when.

    We know the First Minister has given some indication of what will be up for discussion at those meeting, but first let's see where we are now.

    What restrictions are still in place?

    Since January 28, 2022 Wales has been at alert level 0. That means there are no legal limits on the number of people who can meet, including in private homes, public places or events. All businesses and premises can open.

    There are four things that are still required:

    Businesses, employers and other organisations must continue to undertake a specific coronavirus risk assessment and take reasonable measures to minimise exposure to, and the spread of, coronavirus.
    Everyone must follow self-isolation rules and guidance
    Adults and children over 11 must continue to wear on public transport and in indoor public places, with the exception of hospitality settings such as restaurants, pubs, cafes, nightclubs or for solemnisation of a marriage, formation of a civil partnership or an alternative wedding ceremonies, although it is still strongly advised in these settings
    You must show a Covid Pass showing you're either fully vaccinated, have had a recent negative Lateral Flow Test, or have a specific medical exemption, to enter outdoor non-seated events of over 4,000; any event, of any nature, which has more than 10,000 people in attendance; theatres; cinemas; concert halls and night clubs

    This week, the Welsh Government announced that they are looking into two major Covid restrictions- the first is that Covid cannot be used in public sector contracts, and the second is that Covid cannot be used in Wales. These restrictions come as a result of Covid's alleged vulnerabilities. The Welsh Government is hoping to have these restrictions lifted within the next year.
