Public Health Wales’s novel coronavirus outbreak. Giri Shankar said: “Public Health Wells Neth Port Talbot, Glamorgan and Turfen Valley The local ban on local bans is supported by the Welsh government’s announcement.
“These new bans will take effect from today (Monday, September 26) evening. We thank the public in advance for adhering to these new restrictions that are essential to reducing the spread of the virus, protecting the elderly and vulnerable, and protecting Wales.
“We are reminding people living in areas of Wales where there are currently no measures in place to always remember the importance of complying with the rules to prevent any local restrictions.
“The new restrictions mean that people living in the affected areas will not be allowed to enter or leave the local authority area without a valid excuse.
“For the time being, they will not be able to meet inside the home with anyone they do not live with – extended families (sometimes known as ‘bubbles’) have been suspended for the time being.
“Pubs, restaurants and other licensed premises must stop selling alcohol at 10pm and only provide table services. Closed licenses, including supermarkets and other retail outlets, must stop selling alcohol at 10 p.m.
“People who can work from home must do it. Those who cannot reasonably work from home can continue to travel to our workplace outside the area affected by restrictions in a local area.
“The other seven cases in South Wales already have local bans: Bla Blana Gowant, Bridgand, Kerfili Borough, Lleenley in Carmarthenshire, Tidfill Borough in Merythy, Ronda Sinon Taf and Newport.
“More details of these rules can be found on the Welsh Government website.”
Dr. Shankar requested that people living in Blaena Gowant, who have symptoms of Covid-19, undergo an examination after rapid growth.
“A mobile testing unit has been set up in the area. Local residents can book an exam by calling 0300 303 1222.
“The symptoms of Covid-19 are a new, persistent cough, fever and change in taste or smell (anosemia), but there may be smaller symptoms earlier.
“We encourage people with any flu symptoms, or those who are feeling generally ill, to book a test.
“In addition to effectively monitoring current and new restrictions, I would urge people to download the new NHS Covid-19 app, which was launched on Thursday (September 22, 2020).
“The application forms a central part of the NHS Wales Test Trace Protect program. We will encourage you to download and use the application in a timely manner to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. The app also notifies users of current risk levels in their postcode districts. “
