COVID Passes will now be needed to enter cinemas, theatres and concert halls from today (Monday 15 November 2021).


The extension of the COVID Pass is one of a number of measures to be strengthened to help keep people safe and businesses open while Cymru remains at alert level zero but cases of coronavirus are very high.

The guidance on self-isolation has also been changed and people are being encouraged to work from home to help bring the virus under control.

The extension of the pass was approved by Members of the Senedd in a vote on 9 November.

Deputy Minister for Arts and Sport, Dawn Bowden said: “Cases of coronavirus in Wales are very high at the moment and we all need to work together to bring them under control.


“Extending the use of the COVID Pass to cinemas, theatres and concert halls is another way we can strengthen the measures we have in place to keep us all safe.


“I understand the challenges this sector has faced during the pandemic – this will help keep these businesses open during the difficult autumn and winter months ahead.


“We want to do everything we can to keep Wales open and to keep Wales safe and to give people the confidence to return to these venues.”
