From 6pm on Friday 23rd October 2020, Wales goes into a 16 day lockdown (firebreak).

During that time convenience stores and newsagents will be able to remain open, while other non essential stores will be required to close.

Essential stores will not be permitted to sell products from categories found in non-essential stores.

The regulations were published on the morning of 22nd October and there is little or no guidance as to what is or is not permitted.

The NFRN has been in discussions with the Welsh Government and further guidance has been promised.

Our table indicates our current understanding as to what may or may not be sold.  It will be updated as more information becomes available.

Last Updated 5pm on the 23rd October 2020.
