The Welsh Government has revealed that nail and beauty businesses could reopen from 15 March as part of their plan to exit lockdown.

Despite Wales not publicly announcing a long term plan to see the country reopen, the government has instead opted to look no further than six weeks- or two three-week review cycles of lockdown restrictions ahead.

Health Minister Vaughan Gething said: “I think forecasting much further into the future is fraught with difficulty and uncertainty.”

What we know so far:

  • 1 March- Wedding venues reopen for limited-size wedding and civil partnership ceremonies.
  • 12 March- Next review of restrictions, possibility of more changes if case numbers continue to fall.
  • 15 March- Possible reopening of non-essential shops and more schools. This could include hairdressers, beauticians and all primary schools.
  • Easter- Target date for reopening of tourism businesses. Focused on self-contained accommodation.

First Minister Mark Drakeford has been urged to produce a roadmap for the end of the Covid-19 lockdown.
