Name of the date when all COVID laws in Wales will be lifted

Wales is ready to lift all legal coronavirus measures by Monday, 28 March, should the public health situation remain stable, the First Minister has confirmed.

This means that wearing face coverings in shops, public transport or healthcare will no longer be mandatory on that date and self-isolation will not be required by law.

There is no announcement yet on whether testing for COVID-19 will remain free, but the Welsh government has indicated that the country will “gradually move away from universal and routine” testing.

On Friday the government will release its long-term plan on how to live safely with the coronavirus and transition beyond the pandemic’s emergency response.

First Minister Mark Drakeford said: “We have been living in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic for two long years. It has touched all our lives – families and communities in Wales have made many sacrifices to keep themselves and their loved ones safe The people in Wales have to follow the rules.

“But sadly, many families experience the pain of losing a loved one or close friend. My thoughts are with all of them.

“As we publish this long-term plan, there is no doubt that we have arrived at a critical moment in this pandemic and we can look to the future with growing confidence that the next year will be one in which we will be able to fight the virus.” There will be a different relationship with

“This has been made possible by the hard work of all and the efforts of all health and care workers, public sector workers and volunteers who have done a lot over the past two years.

“But the pandemic is not over – this virus is full of terrifying surprises and we are likely to see fluctuations in global patterns of infection for many years. We need to respond quickly to any future outbreaks or new forms We need to be prepared as we learn to live safely with the coronavirus for a long time.

“We have learned a lot over the past two years and we need to use it as we look forward to a safer and brighter future together.”

With the current security level, Wales will remain at zero alert level for the next three weeks. But the government confirmed that all legal measures could be lifted from March 28 if the public health situation remains stable.

The Welsh Government Scheme, called Together for a safer future: Wales’ long-term Covid-19 transition marks a gradual transition from pandemic to endemic, from emergency measures. It says it is “based on evidence” and “with the protection of everyone, especially the most vulnerable, at its heart”.

The plan sets out how Wales’ response to the coronavirus will change under two main planning scenarios: COVID stable and COVID urgent.

The Covid stable is the most likely scenario in which Wales is expected to face new waves of infections, but they are not expected to put continued pressure on the NHS for the effectiveness of vaccines and other drug treatments, such as the new COVID-19 antivirals.

The plan sets out a gradual, phased approach to the long-term management of the virus under COVID stable, including:

  • helping people to maintain behavior We have all become familiar with it to help reduce the transmission of all respiratory infections, not just the coronavirus.
  • Vaccination Boosters in the spring and a routine COVID-19 vaccination schedule by autumn for the elderly and most vulnerable adults.
  • Test, Trace, Protect The program gradually moves away from universal and routine symptomatic and asymptomatic testing and the need to self-isolate to a more targeted approach aimed at vulnerable people.
  • optimization of public services This includes, for example, using local risk assessments and outbreak control plans.
  • Businesses and other employers They have built in place to protect employees and customers, building on elements of infection control.

Contingency plans are also underway to enable the Welsh government and other public services to respond quickly to the immediate COVID scenario – such as a new version that survives the vaccine – if necessary.

The next three-weekly review of coronavirus regulations will be done by March 24 when the remaining legal measures at alert level zero are reviewed.
