Covid: Wales' pubs and restaurants could reopen indoors in May

Pubs and restaurants in สล็อต Wales could reopen indoors in time for the Spring Bank Holiday at the end of May.

The Welsh government also said two households could meet indoors from 10 May, if Covid cases remained low.

The government has given more detailed plans for the easing of lockdown restrictions in the coming weeks
after earlier saying hospitality could reopen outdoors from 26 April.

From 3 May, wedding receptions with up to 30 people can take place outdoors.

Gyms, leisure centres and fitness facilities will also be able to reopen from 10 May. This will include individual
or one-to-one training, but not exercise classes.

Both the Welsh Conservatives and Plaid Cymru said gyms should be allowed to reopen immediately.

Spring Bank Holiday Monday is 31 May, but the Welsh government has not specified a date for reopening
hospitality indoors.

It said after 17 May it would "consider enabling indoor hospitality and remaining visitor accommodation to
reopen in advance of the Spring Bank Holiday".


How have businesses been coping?
Mathew Pemberthy, 29, the owner of Cactws, a men's clothing and lifestyle shop in Aberystwyth,
said he understood the Welsh government's decision to go into the latest lockdown in December, but the timing
of it - days before Christmas - "pretty much crushed us".

"Those three days before Christmas are our busiest days of the whole year. We make more in those three days
than we do in two weeks at other times of year. It was an absolute killer, heartbreaking," he said.

He has since diversified and now also sells home goods because people are spending more on their homes than
they are on fashion because of lockdown.

Mr Pemberthy said the next 12 to 18 months were "critical" for many high street businesses, adding:
"Things were slowing down before Covid hit, so if we don't see a pick up, it's going to be easier to call it
a day really."
