"Encouraging Green Shoots Of Recovery" Says First Minister As Children Begin The Return To School

  First Minister Mark Drakeford announces the new changes to lockdown restrictions in Wales

Wales will use the next three weeks to ensure a safe return to school, with First Minister Mark Drakeford speaking of "encouraging green shoots of recovery" in an announcement today, as cases of coronavirus stand at their lowest level since the end of September and one in three adults in Wales has had a coronavirus vaccine.

The youngest children will begin returning to school from Monday 22nd February as the public health situation in Wales continues to improve following the implementation of Alert Level 4 restrictions in the country.

The First Minister also announced that the Welsh Government will look ahead to the next review of regulations which will consider the restrictions around non-essential retail and close contact services and whether all primary pupils and some older students can return to schools and colleges from Monday 15 March, should the public health situation continue to improve.


Mark Drakeford has said it is thanks to the country of Wales' team effort that we are in the position we are in now as the seven day case rate of coronavirus now stands at 84 per 100,000 people.
