Keep up to date with the latest coronavirus data where you live:

Pubs and restaurants will have to stop selling alcohol entirely and shut at 6pm under new rules coming into force in Wales on Friday, December 4.

First Minister Mark Drakeford made the announcement during the Welsh Government briefing at 12.15pm on Monday, November 30.

Mr Drakeford said said the measures were based on advice from the UK’s Sage group of scientific advisers and would be reviewed on December 17.

“From 6pm on Friday, our national measures will be amended to introduce new restrictions for hospitality and indoor entertainment attractions,” he said.

“Pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes will have to close by 6pm and will not be allowed to serve alcohol. After 6pm they will only be able to provide takeaway services.

“From the same date, indoor entertainment venues, including cinemas, bingo halls, bowling alleys, soft play centres, casinos, skating rinks and amusement arcades, must close.

“Indoor visitor attractions, such as museums, galleries and heritage sites will also have to close. Outdoor visitor attractions will remain open.”

Mr Drakeford added: “Unless we respond now to the growing number of people infected with the virus, the advice we have from our scientific and medical advisers is that by January 12, the total number of people with coronavirus in hospital in Wales could rise to 2,200.”
