“If we continue at this rate, we will reach this point within weeks,” he added.
- People in Wales are required to stay home until Monday, November 9
- All non-core retail, entertainment, hospitality and tourism businesses will be closed as was the case during the March lockdown
- All community centers, libraries, and recycling centers will also close and places of worship other than funerals or wedding ceremonies will be closed.
