THE First Minister for Wales Mark Drakeford has made a statement on travel and social distancing during Coronavirus outbreak.
Self-isolation for those who have symptoms and social distancing by everyone is absolutely essential at this stage if we are to delay the spread of this virus and save lives.
We all need to follow this advice now to protect each other and our families and to help ensure our NHS is not overwhelmed.
Social distancing includes avoiding all but essential travel and if people don’t follow this advice we will have no choice but to use powers to enforce it.
