Garden centres to reopen in Wales as exercise rules relaxed
People in Wales will be able to exercise outside more than once a day, the Welsh Government has announced.

Some libraries, tips and garden centres will also be allowed to re-open from Monday, First Minister Mark Drakeford said.

But other existing lockdown measures are set to continue.

It comes 48 hours before Prime Minister Boris Johnson announces possible changes to the rules in England.

Nothing really has changed other than giving people another reason to leave the house and break the rules. Pathetic decision which can only be put down to pressure from big companies like Wyvale and Trago plus the flower industry who are losing a fortune.

Can exercise outside more than once but still not allowed to travel anywhere to exercise except in certain circumstances which hasn't changed. Still have to exercise only in your own locality for vast majority

Still not allowed to sit in the park or have a picnic or meet relatives or non essential travel allowed so really not much change in the stay at home restrictions as they were before today although many will argue that those restrictions are not stringent enough anyway.

David,

Your putting more people on the streets and it’s just been announced on BBC 1 that the GOVT on Sunday are raking away the slogan stay at home.

BBC

You can go out as much as you want, so everyone will mix more and more.

My strong opinion pathetic while the deaths are still high.

These were the last set of rules in Wales which i posted before on here - EXERCISE Once A day

Why are new regulations being brought in?
The Welsh Government says: "The fundamental principle is that people should stay home as much as possible".

What do the new rules on exercise say?
That it should be taken "as close as possible to the home".

You should not drive away from home to exercise, with no journeys "of any significant distance".

How often can you exercise?
Once a day. The time limit is not spelled out, but the rules say four or five hours is out of the question. You should stay two metres apart from other people.

Does this apply to everyone?
Some people with health or mobility issues may not be able to exercise directly outside their homes. They may drive to the nearest convenient spot.

Those with conditions or disabilities, such as autism or dementia, can exercise more than once a day.

Can you exercise with other people?
It should be alone, or with people from your household, or with carers if necessary.

Where can you exercise?
It advises places known to be potentially busy should be avoided.

What exercise is allowed?
It should usually be only walking, running and cycling. Risky exercise is ruled out.

Are you allowed to have a picnic?
Picnics are banned, as is sitting for a "prolonged period" on benches.

Can you do anything else when out exercising?
You can, for instance, walk the dog or buy food. These are considered acceptable reasons to be out.

How far are you allowed to cycle?
A "reasonable walking distance from home". This is not spelled out exactly, but the guidance says an accident a long way from home could put more pressure on the NHS.

I think some on here are letting party opinions cloud their judgement.

I really hope the UK Government deal with the next phase correctly, because we all need the Government to succeed - whatever our party loyalty.

'A row back from stories of major lockdown relaxation'

Vaughan Roderick

BBC Welsh affairs editor

What this was was an attempt to row back from the sort of news stories – and these haven’t come from Wales, they’ve come from Westminster – that there was going to be a major relaxation of the lockdown rules.

Yes there are some changes, like being allowed to exercise outside more than once a day, but the new message we heard there was as well as stay at home, stay safe and stay local.

Mark Drakeford denied this was an attempt to put pressure on Boris Johnson, but he knows perfectly well, and Nicola Sturgeon knows perfectly well, that this does put pressure on Boris Johnson.

Because these are governments saying: 'If you relax too far thousands of people will die' - in England that equates to tens of thousands of people.

'Modest' changes to the guidelines

As he announced earlier on Friday, Mr Drakeford said he was making "small, modest" adjustments to the current guidelines.

These are:

People will be able to exercise outside more than once a day, but only locally and not a significant distance from home

Garden centres will be able to open to the public provided they maintain 2m social-distancing

Local authorities have been told to prepare plans to reopen municipal buildings such as libraries and leisure centres

This easing of restrictions does not apply to the 120,000 people told to shield by the Welsh government, he adds.

Restrictions to stay for at least three weeks

Mr Drakeford reiterated that stay-at-home restrictions will remain in place until the next review date in three weeks' time.

"We must not lose the progress we have made," he said.

In particular, he said it was important to remember the following key advice:

People must continue to work from home whenever they can
Travel only when "absolutely necessary"
People should continue to observe the 2m social-distancing rules
Washing hands often should continue to be a priority

Councils' 'common approach' to reopen recycling centres

Councils in Wales will need to have confidence in adequate staffing levels, health and safety compliance, and consultation with unions, before considering reopening recycling centres, says Cardiff Council.

It comes after the Welsh Government announced changes to the regulations on lockdown from Monday which enable councils to begin to work on their plans to re-open household waste centres and libraries.

No dates for restrictions ending in Wales

The man charged with Wales' recovery from the coronavirus pandemic has refused to set out a timeframe on when lockdown will be lifted.

Counsel General Jeremy Miles said while it was "important to give people a sense of the direction of travel”, he would not commit the Welsh Government to producing a roadmap outlining phased changes to the lockdown restrictions.

The Welsh Government has already set out a so-called "traffic light" framework to ending lockdown, which is based on a serious of questions which must be answered before restrictions can be gradually eased.

Speaking on BBC Radio Wales Breakfast with Claire Summers, Mr Miles said: “When the lockdown is lifted it will not be immediate, it will be gradual, and in the initial stages, it may not feel very different from the restrictions that we are living under now.

“But it's very important that that is the way that it happens so that we can continue to monitor and keep the spread of the virus under control, which is everyone's top priority.”

Mr Miles said work was “under way” to reintroduce some non-Covid-19 NHS procedures and getting more people to travel on public transport.

He also said Education Minister Kirsty Williams will publish a document “in the coming days” explaining the next steps for the phased return to schools.

Travelling to Wales is breaking the law, says FM

People coming into Wales to exercise will be breaking the law, First Minister Mark Drakeford has said.

He said police chiefs were worried that traffic into Wales could continue to increase from across the boarder, after Prime Minister Boris Johnson said travel to exercise will be allowed in England.

But Mr Drakeford said travelling to Wales to exercise was not exercising locally, as allowed under Welsh rules.

"I want to be clear – in Wales, it is Welsh law which applies", he said.

"We will use whatever means are available to convey this message, including signs on the major roads and motorways, and articles in local newspapers along our borders".

Mr Drakeford said the Welsh Government would continue to make decisions "which are right for Wales" and would use information and expert advice about how coronavirus is circulating here "to keep us all safe".

Golf clubs in Wales expected to reopen for local members
The Welsh Government says it expects that some golf clubs could reopen in Wales for "local members".

Under the easing of lockdown measures in England golf courses will be reopened from tomorrow, prompting questions about clubs which straddle the border, such as Llanymynech near Oswestry.

Golf clubs in Wales have been shut during lockdown but the government has offered legal clarification that could see golfers returning to the fairways.

Jason Thomas, director of the Welsh Government’s culture, sport and tourism department, told a Senedd committee he expects that clubs could soon reopen.

“Legal clarification is that golf courses are not included on the list of businesses or establishments that must remain closed - they have never been on that list,” said Mr Thomas.

“It's been other measures in force that has restricted the ability of the clubs to open - travel measures etc, so we have clarified this.

"Legally they don’t have to be closed. We have clarified that we do want to encourage people to exercise but exercise locally, so we are expecting a statement from Wales Golf imminently on the back of our clarification, because they may be minded to suggest to clubs that they can open so they can ensure that local members can play.”

Golf clubs in Wales able to reopen from Monday

Golf clubs in Wales will be allowed to reopen from Monday, 18 May.

Golf has been a key topic today with the Welsh Government saying it expects some golf clubs could re-open in Wales for "local members".

Wales Golf have now clarified their position in a statement, saying reopening is at the discretion of each golf club.

"Following recent Welsh Government announcements and the revision of certain Covid-19 related restrictions golf clubs are permitted to open if they so wish," they said.

"It is entirely at each golf club’s discretion as to whether they choose to open and if so when they choose to do so.

"We would advise that clubs that do wish to re-open do not do so immediately so as to ensure they have sufficient protocols in place to adhere to these guidelines, which we will be on hand to assist with.

"This would allow for a managed and co-ordinated reintroduction of golf across Wales from next Monday 18 May at the earliest."

Lockdown fines in Wales to increase to £1,920

The maximum fine for repeated breaches of coronavirus lockdown regulations in Wales will increase from £120 to £1,920, the Welsh Government has confirmed.

Under the new rules , initial fixed penalty notices will remain at £60 but double for each time someone is fined, to a maximum of £1,920.

First Minister Mark Drakeford confirmed that the increased fines would come into force on Friday, ahead of the bank holiday weekend. He said:

"Fines are a last resort in the enforcement of the regulations which keep us all safe,"

"The evidence from the chief constables and Police and Crime Commissioners shows we need a stronger fines structure to deter that small minority of people who persistently fail to keep to the rules."
