COVID-19

Our regional travel advice

From 7 August 2021, Wales moved into Alert Level Zero. This means that there are no legal limits on the number of people who can meet, including in private homes, public places or at events. In addition all businesses and premises may be open.

However, Wales has not yet reached a position where we can remove all protections and – in line with the latest scientific and public health advice – there are some key rules in place in law.

In these respects collective responsibility is needed rather than personal choice.

1. 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.
2. Everyone must continue to self-isolate for 10 days if they test positive for COVID-19.  If you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive and you are aged 18 or over and not fully vaccinated, you must also self-isolate for 10 days.
3. Adults and children over 12 must continue to wear face-coverings in indoor public places, with the exception of hospitality settings such as restaurants, pubs, cafes or nightclubs.

Please familiarise yourselves with the Alert Level Zero Guidance before you travel. Some rules are still in place to ensure your safety and those around you. The Alert Level Zero FAQ's are a useful guide to what to expect when visiting Wales at this time. Customers are advised to pre-book at venues ahead of arrival.

The Wales Covid Passport

In Wales, the new requirements will mean people over the age of 18 will need to show their COVID19 status to attend the following venues or events:

  • nightclubs and similar venues
  • indoor venues with more than 500 people in the audience where some or all of the audience are not normally seated
  • any outdoor or indoor venues with over 4,000 in the audience, where some or all of the audience are not normally seated
  • any event,  which has more than 10,000 people in attendance

How to get your Covid Pass

Good to Go

Many businesses accross the Vale have been working hard to welcome you back safely. Look out for the 'Good to Go' accreditation that businesses have achieved to demonstrate that they have reached the standard required to make sure their premises are safe.

EVENTS IN THE VALE

We are seeing the gradual return of Events to the Vale. See our Event pages for news of events as and when they have been given approval to be held.


The Welsh Government has issued guidance for outdoor organised gatherings and events. From Monday 7 June, outdoor organised events such as concerts, festivals and sporting events were able to resume - with a capacities of 4,000 standing and 10,000 seated.

The health and safety of the audience, staff and performers is always our top priority, so if you are thinking of organising an event in the Vale of Glamorgan this year, please contact our Events Officer before putting any plans in place.

Events Officer email: sejones@valeofglamorgan.gov.uk

Diolch - Thank you

Visit the Vale would like to thank both residents of the Vale and visitors alike for their continued support.
