Rejected petition Let people visit family/friends outdoors asap and before non-essential shops are reopened

It seems crazy that schools can reopen yet people, including school staff, will not be able to meet friends or family outdoors with a stay local ban lifted! Ideally this should happen before non essential shops reopen.

Why was this petition rejected?

It did not collect enough signatures to be referred to the Petitions Committee.

Petitions need to receive at least 50 signatures before they can be considered in the Senedd.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
