The Welsh government has announced on Thursday that people will now be allowed to travel between Wales and some other parts of the UK from Friday.
From 6pm on Friday the new regulations will permit travel to and from Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas of England only.
Those who live in tier 3 and 4 will not be allowed non-essential travel.
Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford said, “There will be no restrictions on travel within Wales but we need to have some restrictions on travel across the border to those parts of the UK where infection rates are high to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
“We are also advising people in Wales not to travel into those parts of England and Scotland where the infection rate is lower, to help prevent them taking coronavirus with them.
“Coronavirus doesn’t respect borders – we all have a part to play in keeping Wales and the UK safe. Please think carefully about where you are going and what you are doing. This virus thrives wherever we come together with others.
“Taken together with our other measures, these travel restrictions will help to keep us all safe.”
