Beauty salons, cinemas and museums in Wales can reopen from Monday (July 27), First Minister Mark Drakeford has confirmed.
Nail parlours, tattoo shops, amusement arcades and art galleries will also be able to reopen, while restrictions are set to be lifted to fully reopen the housing market.
New rules making it compulsory to wear a face mask on public transport, including taxis, will also come into force from Monday.
Meanwhile, camping sites, hotels and other tourist accommodation with shared facilities will be able to reopen on Saturday (July 25).
Underground visitor attractions will also reopen on Saturday.
The First Minister 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 from tomorrow [July 25].”

Mr Drakeford added: “As more places start to reopen, we must get used to some changes to help protect ourselves and the people working in these businesses. This may mean having to book ahead or giving our details to the places we are visiting, to help our Test Trace Protect service, in the event there’s an outbreak of coronavirus.
“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.”
The next formal review of Wales’ coronavirus lockdown measures will take place before Thursday, July 30, with the indoor reopening of pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants indoors from August 3 expected to be announced.
