COVID Pass for events and nightclubs announced
People will have to show a NHS COVID Pass to enter nightclubs and attend events in Wales from next month, the First Minister announced today.
The measure is being introduced to help control the spread of coronavirus – cases are currently very high in Wales but the alert level will remain at zero for the next 3 weeks.
Announcing the outcome of the latest 3-week review of the coronavirus regulations, the First Minister today encouraged everyone to work from home whenever possible and to make sure they are fully vaccinated.
Awareness and enforcement of other key coronavirus protection measures, including face coverings in indoor public places and on public transport, will be increased.
The requirement to show a NHS COVID Passwill come into force from 11 October 2021.
It will mean all over-18s will need to have aNHS COVID Pass to enter:
- Indoor, non-seated events for more than 500 people, such as concerts or conventions
- Outdoor non-seated events for more than 4,000 people
- Any setting or event with more than 10,000 people in attendance
People who are fully vaccinated in Wales can already download the NHS COVID Pass to securely show and share their vaccine status.
It also allows people to show they have had a negative lateral flow test result within the last 48 hours.
