From Friday (December 4), pubs, bars and cafes in Wales must stop selling alcohol and close by 6pm, except for takeaway services, First Minister Mark Drakeford has announced.
Mr Drakeford said that unless action was taken now, the number of people with coronavirus in Welsh hospitals could reach 2,200 by January 12.
He said: “From 6pm on Friday, our national measures will be amended to introduce new restrictions for hospitality and indoor entertainment attractions.
“Pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes will have to close by 6pm and will not be allowed to serve alcohol. After 6pm they will only be able to provide takeaway services.”
The restrictions will be formally reviewed by December 17 and then every three weeks.
