NEWS ROUNDUP: Indoor Hospitality returns
Indoor eating and drinking is back on the menu in Wales, as the country has moved into alert level two. Cinemas and visitor attractions like museums and galleries are also allowed to reopen in the latest round of lockdown easing. The latest easing of lockdown measures is very similar to what happened last summer, but this time a full vaccination programme is in place. Foreign travel is permitted to a small number of countries, although the Welsh government has advised against it. After three lockdowns and the vaccination programme roll-out, Wales has seen a significant fall in Covid cases in recent months.
Cardiff’s Debenhams closed it’s doors for a final time over the weekend. The established chain's last remaining stores closed on Saturday – five months after the company entered administration and was traded off for £55m. New owner Boohoo said the business will now run online-only as it plans to dip into the world of homeware retail, rivalling the likes of House of Fraser and John Lewis.
And according to the latest figures, More than two million people in Wales have now received their first Covid vaccine. Public Health Wales said a total of 2,019,160 people (64% of the population) have had their first dose. This comes as pubs and restaurants are now allowed to open indoors.
