Item 1: COVID-19 updates

The First Minister put on record his thanks to spending ministers for releasing resources to deal with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. This had enabled the government to make a series of announcements relating to providing financial support for volunteers and the Third Sector, bus companies and business support.

The First Minister informed Cabinet that the leaders of the Welsh Conservatives and Plaid Cymru had been invited to attend the COVID-19 Core Group that meets on a Wednesday. Both leaders had been advised that the purpose of the group was an opportunity for ministers and officials to share information and provide updates on the major issues relating to the emergency.

The Minister for Health and Social Services informed Cabinet that the letters to the ‘shielded’ group of people had been issued and should be delivered to those concerned by mid-week.
