COVID restrictions announced for Wales – funerals not included

The Welsh Government has today (22 December) announced gathering restrictions in Wales, to take effect from Boxing Day.

We have contacted the Welsh Government and they have confirmed that funerals and wakes will not be included in the gathering limits for indoor/outdoor events. Instead, the numbers that can attend will continue to be determined by the capacity of the venue and its ability to manage social distancing.

You may wish to advise client families that anyone attending a funeral receptions/wake should take a lateral flow test and only attend if negative. This is not required for funeral services, given the exemption that is in already place for someone who is COVID positive to attend the funeral of a family member or close friend.
