Lockdown in Wales will remain in place until at least the 15th March, despite many areas seeing the lowest COVID-19 infection rates for several months.

First Minister Mark Drakeford has hinted that hairdressers and non-essential retail could be some of the first sectors that are allowed to re-open.

Mr Drakeford told BBC Breakfast:

“I will set out today some discussions that we will have with non-essential retail over the next couple of weeks to see how we might begin the reopening of non-essential retail.

“If it is possible from 15 March to begin the reopening of some aspects of non-essential retail and personal services such as hairdressing then of course that is what we would want to do.”
