COVID-19

Our regional travel advice

Wales has now moved to Alert Level 3.

The ‘stay local’ regulations have been lifted allowing people accross the UK to visit the Vale of Glamorgan and stay in self contained accommodation.  We are also pleased to welcome visitors to non essential shops on our High Streets once again. Hospitality venues have now re-opened allowing outdoor service only. Outdoor attractions have now also re-opened.

Some venues remain closed. Serviced accommodation and accommodation with shared facilities remain closed at this time. Indoor attractions and indoor service at Hospitality venues also remain closed at this time. Confirmation of their re-opening later this month will follow soon.  

First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford said:

The public health situation continues to improve and our vaccination programme remains a success. Thanks to the efforts of people across Wales, we are in a position to further ease the restrictions, in the way we have previously signalled, to allow more elements of normal life to return.
However, the virus has not gone away. We all still need to take those vitally important steps, that we are now all so familiar with, to protect ourselves and each other from this dreadful virus – by self-isolating if we have symptoms, by taking up the offer of a covid vaccine, washing our hands regularly, wearing a face covering in enclosed public spaces, following social distancing rules, limiting the number of people we meet socially outdoors, and only meeting with those we live with indoors.
By working together, by following these rules, the quicker we will return to normality. Together, we will continue to keep Wales safe.

The next review of the coronavirus restrictions is due by 13 May.
