The latest update from the Welsh Government on whether more Covid restrictions are needed

Wales is still in a “critical” situation with the coronavirus, but there are currently no plans to introduce Covid tickets for more venues.

At a weekly Welsh government press conference, Finance Minister Rebecca Evans said the government was not yet considering extending Covid passports, although the first minister warned it was possible.

The latest review would normally take place on Friday and the data will be released on Thursday night, but this week it will be released on Wednesday, November 17th. In a previous review, Mark Drakeford said venues should be used for the next three weeks to prepare.

WalesOnline inquired from the Secretary of the Treasury under what circumstances hospitality tickets would be introduced due to fluctuations in the number of cases. Some venues have expressed concern over the first minister’s warning that they may be needed at the venues.

Ms. Evans said she could not provide details on how such a system would be measured because its introduction is not currently planned.

“We have no immediate plans to introduce these Covid passports more widely than at present.

“Since Elise, they have been expanded to include theaters, concert halls and cinemas, and there is a wider debate with the restaurant industry about what we can do to ensure that people are safe in these environments. But there is no immediate plan. I can’t talk about there is no immediate plan. “
