COVID-19 essential travel guidance

Advice from the Welsh Government

Guidance and advice to avoid non-essential travel in the UK.
Following on from the government’s guidance on social distancing in relation to COVID-19, people should avoid travelling unless it is essential.

For more detailed advice please see https://gov.wales/staying-home-and-away-others-guidance

Who this guidance is for:
This guidance is for people planning to visit second homes or holiday premises during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays.
People must remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk
