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. 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.

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. The UK Government has also published a guide for individuals and business in Wales.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23 March, the UK Government published guidance on staying at home and away from people. It also published a full list of the businesses and premises that must close.

The Welsh Government published FAQs on what people can and can’t do during the coronavirus outbreak.
