Tourism businesses and hairdressers will not reopen as part of next week's lockdown easing measures – but they could start to come back in three weeks' time, the First Minister has said.

Mark Drakeford said that the next review on July 9 will see the Welsh Government consider "a range of specific options" for opening self-contained holiday accommodation and personal care services such as hairdressers and beauty salons, by appointment.

Accommodation providers were told that they could take bookings for the week beginning July 13 - but Mr Drakeford said they would be doing so "at their own risk".

He said the advice covers hotels, B and Bs and caravan parks "where accommodation is self-contained".

Discussions will also be held with the hospitality sector about the potential phased reopening of pubs, cafes and restaurants while maintaining strict social distancing.

The First Minister said: “I know the wider tourism industry is keen to reopen and to salvage some of this summer’s season. I am therefore signalling owners of self-contained accommodation should use the next three weeks to prepare to re-open, working with their local communities.

“But I want people to know coronavirus has not gone away. We have some headroom to make this package of changes to the regulations, which will be introduced in a phased and cautious way in Wales.

“Many aspects of daily life in Wales will be moving into the amber zone in our traffic light system. But we all need to continue to take steps to protect ourselves from the virus – that means working from home wherever possible; avoiding unnecessary travel; only meeting with one other household outdoors; maintaining social distancing and washing your hands often. It may also mean wearing a face covering in some situations.

“It is thanks to the efforts of everyone in Wales that we have slowed the spread of coronavirus but we can’t stop now. We need to do all we can to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the virus and to keep Wales safe.”
