Change in regulations in Wales

13, December 2021

The Welsh guidance on the COVID Pass has been amended to advise that a lateral flow test should be taken within 24 hours, rather than 48 hours. The Welsh Government is making changes to the regulations to:

  • Clarify that people face coverings must be worn in theatres, cinemas or concert halls (except when eating or drinking or when at in-house cafes or bars)
  • Require face coverings to be worn during a professional driving lesson or practical test;
  • Remove proof of natural immunity from the domestic version of the Covid Pass.

The changes on face coverings came into force on Saturday 11 December. The changes for the Covid Pass will come into force on Wednesday 15 December, to match those in England.
