The purpose of this guidance is to inform the owners and operators of indoor play areas in Wales of ongoing legal restrictions and requirements related to restricting the spread of coronavirus at Level 4. Please see Coronavirus Control Plan: Alert Levels in Wales for further information

Indoor play areas, also sometimes known as indoor play centres or soft play centres, are indoor playgrounds. They are specifically designed for children to play in, with structures and play equipment often padded to absorb the impact when children fall or bounce around. As well as specific areas created for the purpose of indoor play, facilities such as these are often found in a range of buildings and services used by parents including pubs, shopping centres and some of the larger tourist attractions.

Level 4

At level 4, indoor play areas are required to close. Please see guidance on Business Closures at level 4.
