In his announcement on 13 April 2022, the First Minister spoke about the importance of continuing to take simple steps to protect public health to manage the spread of coronavirus. The publication entitled 'Together for a safer future: Wales’ long-term COVID-19 transition from pandemic to endemic' sets out the Welsh Government's ongoing COVID-19 plan in detail.
