Unless you’re exempt, you still need to wear a mask in most indoor spaces in Wales – including shops and stores, and on public transport.
But not everyone is sticking to the rules. And if enough people ignore them, we have a lot to lose…
We could lose our health. Maybe we could lose some of our freedoms.
Worst of all, someone we love could lose their life (people still die from Covid every day).
Wearing a mask is a small price to pay if it helps ensure we have a happy and healthy Christmas.
Whether you're going to do some Christmas shopping, getting on the train or using the bus, remember that wearing a mask in shops and on public transport is the law in Wales.

The booster jab is important – get yours
Booster jab appointments are being offered by letter to eligible people across North Wales.
It’s really important that you don’t delay accepting your appointment.
Why do I need a booster?
Like other vaccines, the levels of protection can begin to wane over time.
By having a booster dose, you’ll be extending the protection you gained from your first two doses – giving you longer term protection.
And most importantly, it helps reduce the risk of you being admitted to hospital due to Covid-19 infection this winter.
Get your flu jab too
If you’re eligible for a flu jab, please take up the offer.
Most people won’t be offered their flu jab and Covid booster at the same time. Your booster will probably be given to you at a Covid-19 vaccination centre, while your flu jab will in most cases be given at your GP surgery.
Most people will be sent separate appointment letters for both jabs.
Does someone you live with have Covid, or symptoms?
Quick guide ????????????
How to get your Covid pass
From Monday (November 15), if you’re over 18, you must show the NHS Covid Pass to enter theatres, cinemas and concert halls – in addition to nightclubs and similar venues.
You can get your pass from the NHS UK website (you can’t use the NHS app to get the pass if you live in Wales). The pass can be downloaded and printed.
You must be:
- Aged 16 or over.
- Registered with a GP in Wales.
You’ll need to upload a photo of one of the following:
- Full UK driving licence
- Full European driving licence
(If you don’t have photographic ID or a relevant smart device, you’ll need to request a paper NHS Covid certificate.)
