Gyms in Luton and Blackburn with Darwen are not reopening after they experienced a spike in coronavirus cases.

Swimming pools and other sports centres will not be allowed to open there either, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said.

First Minister Mark Drakeford has also given the green light for the viewing of occupied homes for rent or sale to restart from Monday, as well as the reopening of cinemas, indoor museums, galleries, arcades, beauty salons and tattoo parlours.

Monday will also see new rules come into effect which will make it compulsory to wear a face covering on public transport, including buses, trains and taxis.

Mr Drakeford said: "Thanks to the efforts we have all made to reduce the spread of the virus, we are taking further steps to reopen more of Wales.

"More of our retail, leisure, hospitality and tourism sectors, which play such an important part in our economy, will start to welcome back customers and guests."

He added: "It's the responsibility of all of us to follow these new rules so we can keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.

"Coronavirus has not gone away. But if we all work together, we can keep Wales safe."

Stay alert to stop coronavirus spreading - here is the latest government guidance. If you think you have the virus, don't go to the GP or hospital, stay indoors and get advice online.

In parts of Wales where 111 isn't available, call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47. In Scotland anyone with symptoms is advised to self-isolate for seven days. In Northern Ireland, call your GP.
