Published 02/06/2021   |   Last Updated 22/07/2021   |   Reading Time minutes

People in Wales continue to have questions about coronavirus, relating to employment rights, benefits, business support, travel, food, retail, education and lots more.

Senedd Research answers questions from Members and their staff through the usual enquiry process, but we’ve also collated some links to reliable information to help people in Wales.

It’s really important to follow guidance from official and reputable sources. These pages should be used as primary sources of information, rather than news websites or social media.

The Welsh Government has a webpage for all of its coronavirus information, and a page dedicated to addressing misinformation – coronavirus: the facts. It also has guidance on staying safe and social distancing, coronavirus and the law, self-isolating and what people and businesses can and can’t dotesting and tracing.

The Welsh Government published an updated coronavirus control plan, with revised alert levels. Recent and upcoming changes to the restrictions can be found on the Welsh Government website.

Senedd Research has a timeline of the response in Wales which highlights the key developments for more information.
