News Item: Covid-19 Passes to be Introduced in Wales
The Welsh Government has confirmed that from the 11th October, attendees of nightclubs and large events in Wales will be required to show an NHS Covid-19 Pass, in order to enter, proving they have been fully vaccinated or tested negative for Covid.
All over 18 year olds in Wales will need to have a Covid Pass to enter:
- Indoor, non-seated events with 500+ people (such as concerts and conferences)
- Outdoor, non-seated events with 4,000+ people
- Any event with 10,000+ people
This decision follows the Scottish Government’s announcement that vaccine passports will come into force in Scotland on the 1st October. Health Secretary, Sajid Javid, has also discussed the possibility of Covid-19 passports being brought into England should cases spike in Autumn or Winter.
