Coronavirus: help and information for people in Wales

People in Wales have many questions about coronavirus related to employment rights, benefits, business support, travel, food, retail, cancellations, education and lots more. Assembly Members and their staff are receiving lots of these enquiries. Senedd Research will answer 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. We will update this post every week day, usually by 2pm. We will also continue publishing articles linked to Assembly plenary business.

People in Wales have many questions about coronavirus related to employment rights, benefits, business support, travel, food, retail, cancellations, education and lots more. Members of the Senedd and their staff are receiving lots of these enquiries.

Senedd Research will answer 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.

We will update this post every week, usually by 2pm on a Monday.

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. It has also published guidance on staying safe and social distancing, coronavirus and the law, self-isolating and testing and tracing. The Welsh Government published a coronavirus control plan for Wales on 18 August and challenges and priorities for coronavirus reconstruction on 6 October.
