After the ‘firebreak’ on 9 November, shops, bars, restaurants and gyms will be able to reopen and that churches and places of worship will be able to resume services.

All pupils will be able to return to school following the 17-day lockdown period.

Mark Drakeford also announced – if you give false details to contact tracers, you will be committing an offence.

Mr Drakeford did not outline what fines will be levied against those who break the new contact tracing rules as yet.

It will also become an offence for employers preventing people from self-isolating, which itself will become a duty for individuals under the law.
