Accoding to the spanish media outlet, Eurofestivales , the Welsh broadcaster S4C and production company Rondo Media have put on ice all decisions regarding the nation’s participation in Junior Eurovision 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Both the television producer Rondo Media and the television channel S4C through their respective press departments, have stated to Eurofestivals that at the moment everything is stopped due to the global situation of COVID-19 in relation to the possible participation of the country in the Festival of Eurovisión Junior 2020.
The press department of the Galician chain S4C, affirmed that the decisions on the participation of Wales in the junior’s contest have not yet been made due to the current situation that is going through.

The Story so Far
