Prime Minister Mark Drakford said: “These additional facilities are part of our careful and phased approach to deregulation and enabling individuals and companies to resume their activities in the most secure manner.
“We are only able to do this because of the sacrifices that everyone across Wales has made over the past few months – all you do to keep your loved ones safe is also to keep Wales safe.
“The public health situation remains stable; our amazing vaccination program goes from strength to strength – we have ample leeway to make these changes.
“We are taking a step-by-step approach to loosening restrictions and want to continue being able to conquer Wales.
“To do this we need everyone’s help. That means staying alert for signs of infection; isolating if we have symptoms and arranging for testing.”
“It also means taking basic steps to keep us all safe while outside – keeping our distance from others; not mixing indoors; avoiding crowds; washing our hands regularly and wearing face coverings.”
