From 16 August, you can:
Go out more - But keep contacts to a minimum when you go out.
Take exercise - Consider what is suitable for your mobility or fitness.
Go to work - Speak with your employer about changes to keep you safe.
Go shopping - Go at quieter times and only when you need to.
Go to school - If you are in school, you can return in September.


To keep safe when you go out, plan ahead and:

Wear a face covering - Where required.
Together we'll keep Wales safe.
