The Welsh government has banned all alcohol sales across the country after 10pm in an attempt to combat the coronavirus.

From tomorrow (September 24), off-licences will no longer be able to sell alcohol after 10pm, Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford stated during a televised announcement last night (September 22).

The news comes after the Public Health Wales announced a further 281 positive cases of Covid-19 – the highest daily figure since April.

Mr Drakeford said: “In the weeks and months ahead of us, there is a very real possibility that we could see the virus regain a foothold in our local communities, towns and cities.

“Now none of us wants to see that happen again. 2020 has been an incredibly difficult year. We have all sacrificed so much.”
