The Welsh Government is bringing in new coronavirus measures to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.
To help further prevent the spread of coronavirus, new measures were announced by the First Minister which will come into force at 6pm on Thursday, September 24, 2020:
- Hospitality businesses in Wales will have to close at 10pm and provide table service only.
- All off-licences, including supermarkets, will have to stop selling alcohol at 10pm.
We are also being asked to think carefully about making journeys: only travel where it is essential to do so. The fewer people we meet and the fewer journeys we make, the safer we all are.
The Welsh Government have also introduced the following measures:
- A new £500 payment to support people on low incomes who are asked to self-isolate if they have coronavirus;
- Strengthened regulations to ensure employers support people who need to self-isolate.
The new measures are part of a package of co-ordinated actions to control the spread of coronavirus and it is essential that we all play our part in order to keep Ceredigion safe.
These new measures are to be introduced alongside those that are already in place:
- Keep a 2m social distance from each other when out and about.
- Wash your hands regularly.
- Wear a mask in indoor public places, shops and on public transport
- Only meet 6 people indoors from your extended household (not including children 11 and under).
- Do not meet with more than 30 people outdoors.
- Work from home, wherever possible.
- Think carefully about making journeys: only travel where you need to do so. The fewer people we meet and the fewer journeys we make, the safer we all are.
We need everyone to follow the rules and guidance and to take the steps to protect them and their loved ones.
Together, we can keep Ceredigion safe.
