Shop safe, shop kind

With rates of Coronavirus transmission still high in Wales, Economy Minister Vaughan Gething has called on shoppers and retailers to play their part in keeping people safe by ensuring face coverings are worn while shopping indoors.

This is a legal requirement in Wales for those not exempt and is crucial in helping to prevent the spread of the virus. 

Rates of coronavirus in Wales are currently the highest in the UK and unless rates begin to fall, Welsh Ministers will have to consider reintroducing restrictions to bring the spread of the virus under control.

Economy Minister, Vaughan Gething is calling on people in Wales to respect the rules and safety advice in place to prevent coronavirus spreading even further and more people falling seriously ill. This includes making sure that face coverings are worn in indoor public spaces like shops.
