Wales will remove all Covid restrictions by Monday, March 28 if the public health situation remains stable, the First Minister has announced.

The removal of restrictions means it will no longer be compulsory to wear face coverings in shops, on public transport, or in healthcare settings on that date and self-isolation will not be required by law.

It is not clear yet if free testing will be scrapped in Wales, but the Welsh government has indicated that the country will “gradually move away from universal and routine” testing.

The removal of restrictions will bring the guidance in Wales in line with the guidance in England and Northern Ireland where there are currently no Covid restrictions.

Similarly, all legal restrictions in Scotland are expected to be lifted on Monday, March 21.

In the Republic of Ireland, most Covid restrictions in have been lifted, including the legal guidance on masks. However, the government is still advising that masks be worn on public transport and in health care settings. Self-isolate is still mandatory for those with symptoms of Covid or those who have a positive Covid test result.
