Rumours of night-time Covid curfew in Wales ‘completely false’ Welsh Government say
The Welsh Government have said that rumours being spread about a possible curfew in Wales are “completely false”.
A social media account called Bubble Wales had claimed that there were rumours that the Welsh Government were considering a Wales-wide curfew between 9pm and 6am.
“Rumours – at this stage *just* rumours – that the Welsh Government are considering a curfew, under which people in Wales would not be able to leave their residences between 9pm and 6am,” the account said.
However, the Welsh Government rejected the suggestion, in a message shared by First Minister Mark Drakeford.
“We are aware of rumours being spread about plans for a ‘curfew’ in Wales,” they said. “These are completely false.”
The conservative-leaning Bubble Wales account published news and gossip from inside the Welsh Parliament.
They previously broke the news of a leaked letter revealing the details of Wales’ firebreak lockdown.
