    Default Wales Lock Down

    Supermarket staff going around covering household goods like kettles and clothing like underwear. So it's fair.

    News

    Supermarkets have started covering up non-essential goods as Wales prepares to start a national lockdown.

    From 18:00 BST shops will be forced to close for 17 days, unless they sell essential items such as food.

    First Minister Mark Drakeford has said supermarkets should also stop selling items such as clothes as a matter of "fairness" until 9 November.

    But retailers say the rules are confusing as they have not been given any definition of what is essential.

    By law, clothing and homeware stores, and garden centres, will have to close during the national lockdown, while supermarkets, pharmacies and hardware stores can remain open.

    On Thursday, the Welsh Government said that supermarkets would be told not to sell non-essential goods, like clothes, toys, decorations and electrical items during the 17-day firebreak.

    Plastic covering was seen placed over pillows and cat baskets in Asda in Coryton, Cardiff.

    The company said it had been given "little time to implement these changes or clarity on what is deemed 'essential'" and had "expressed our deep concerns about the implications for customers accessing products they genuinely need".

    Tesco said it would work "incredibly hard" to comply with the Welsh Government's rules, while Sainsbury's said it was "working around the clock to put changes in place".



    Plus Welsh police on the roads leading in from England. So us in England don't infect those in Wales.

    It's almost like they're taking their lockdowns seriously... the only way a 2-week lockdown will work is if it is very well followed.

    2 weeks not enough - would have been if Covid was 2-3 till it hits, but it is 7-12

    Technically 17 days. Not sure if that's taking this into account, or just so it can run 2 weeks plus the weekend?

    6 week is bare minimum to make a serious dent - they are setting wrong expectations, but there is already talk of extension

    Having said that Wales is ahead of England in this

    Apparently 4 weeks will cause a 3 percent decrease in cases.

    Issue is that all the lockdowns are too late.

    Lockdown while the weather was halfway decent in the spring is one thing, lockdown when the weather is tulipty like it is now is quite another.

    Not forgetting that a fair percentage of Wales has been confined to the county they live in for weeks now.

    I see trouble ahead.

    Just keeping my fingers crossed that the kettle survives the next 16 days.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    If you've stocked up on ammunition then the kettle problem is easily solved.
