Welsh borders are set to open for tourism for the first time in weeks, with holidayers permitted to visit and stay in “self-contained” accommodation.

This includes cottages, static caravans and a selection of hotels.

Mr. Drakeford admitted that the country would proceed with caution and keep a close eye on the stats, stating: “We’ve got to be sure the virus is still under control at that point.”

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, the First Minister commented: “On Monday 6 July, provided the virus is still under control, we will lift our ‘stay local’ instruction here in Wales and at that point the tourism economy will reopen in Wales.

He continued: “I’ll be saying today to our tourism sector that they should use the next three weeks to prepare so that beyond that, self-contained accommodation will be able to reopen in Wales.”

Tourism businesses will be able to take bookings again from July 13.
