Wales will start easing Covid lockdown restrictions from today and drop the “stay at home” order.

Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford said the government will start trying to reopen public venues “cautiously, carefully and step by step”.

Four people from two households will be able to meet outside for get-togethers, while outdoor sports areas, such as basketball, tennis and golf courses, can reopen.

Hairdressers and barbers will be able to reopen for business starting Monday, the same day students in Wales can return to school.

Drakeford told BBC Radio 4 that the government hopes tourism can reopen in the summer for people from outside Wales if Covid cases continued to decline.

“So that’s a balance we’ve struck in Wales, a phased return to school, a phased return to business, a phased return to personal life,” he added.
