Current regulations in Wales
As of 28 March 2022, it is no longer compulsory to wear masks in Wales. Nor is it necessary to self-isolate if you test positive for Covid.
However, the Welsh government recommends that people still wear masks in crowded settings, and that people with Covid should stay at home.
As regards the walking festival, it is therefore no longer mandatory to wear a mask in the village hall. However, you are most welcome to wear one if you would feel safer doing so. (In order to increase the element of social distancing in the hall, we have this year somewhat reduced the number of walks so that registration can be spaced out at half-hour intervals. We have also capped the number of walkers on individual walks at a slightly lower number than usual.)
Whilst there is no longer any legal requirement to wear a mask on public transport or on our minibus, we are following Welsh government guidance and recommend that you do so for the safety of all concerned.*
This applies to the following walks:
Saturday – ‘If Carlsberg did Good Views’, ‘Hot Rocks & Monoliths’ and ‘The Scenic Way Home’
Sunday – ‘Cuckoo Country’ and ‘Dolgarrog Disaster’
We also recommend that face masks are worn if car-sharing, unless you have travelled to Trefriw in that group.
This applies to the ‘Bristly Ridge’ and ‘Mindfulness’ walks on Friday.
Whilst self-isolation is no longer mandatory by law, if you know (or suspect) that you have Covid, we again follow government guidance and strongly recommend that you do not attend the walking festival.
COVID IS BY NO MEANS OVER. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND CO-OPERATION.
