NEW coronavirus restrictions are being introduced in four local authority areas in North Wales – Denbighshire, Flintshire, Conwy and Wrexham – following a rise in cases, Health Minister Vaughan Gething today announced.
The new measures will come into force at 6pm on Thursday 1 October, to protect people’s health and control the spread of the virus in the four areas.
The new restrictions will apply to everyone living in Denbighshire, Flintshire, Conwy and Wrexham:
People will not be allowed to enter or leave each of these areas without a reasonable excuse, such as travel for work or education;
People will only be able to meet people they don’t live with outdoors for the time being. They will not be able to form, or be in, extended households;
The restrictions will be in addition to the rules that apply everywhere in Wales, including:
All licensed premises must stop selling alcohol at 10pm
Everyone over 11 will be required to wear face coverings in indoor public areas – as is the case across Wales.
