UNITED KINGDOM : It is considered that the rules for wearing masks in schools in Wales are likely to be repealed.
A senior doctor in Wales has said he is actively considering whether to remove the rules that require secondary students to wear masks at school.
The current rule in Wales is that masks must be worn in all areas, including the classroom.
Dr. Giri Shankar, of the Public Health Wales area, said, ‘The technical advisory committee here is also considering whether to drop the rules.
This issue is being seriously considered in Wales. Colleagues are also compiling all the resources, including the input of Public Health Wales.
Therefore, we can make an informed assessment of whether we can go straight to the point of not using masks in schools or whether we need additional evidence. ‘
In the UK, face masks will no longer be required in schools from May 17.
When people in Scotland go abroad and return home, it is understood that there is no need to be isolated.
It will be part of a ‘traffic signal light’ system similar to the one in the UK. It will also come into effect from May 24.
Countries should be classified as green, sem yellow and red. And a review will be held every four weeks.
This classification of countries is based on both covir infections and vaccination rates.
The green list, which runs south from May 17, includes Portugal, Israel, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Brunei, Iceland, Gibraltar, the Falkland Islands, the Faroe Islands, South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands, as well as Saint Helena, Tristan de Cunha and Ascension.
