Christina Rees MP is urging constituents to follow the Welsh Labour Government’s new coronavirus restrictions, brought in as a result of rising rates of infection across the country.
Some restrictions remain in force, including the requirement for everyone over the age of 11 to wear a face covering in an indoor public place, unless they are exempt from doing so, and only 6 people from the same exclusive extended household group can meet indoors. Those who are able to work from home are still asked to do so.
Additional restrictions now in place mean hospitality businesses in Wales, including pubs, cafes, restaurants, and casinos, will have to stop selling alcohol at 10pm, close their doors by 10:20, and provide table service only. Off licences and supermarkets will also have to stop selling alcohol at 10pm.
Christina is also encouraging constituents to download the new NHS Covid-19 app which launched this week and can be downloaded to your smartphone from either the App Store or Google Play to know your local risk level, book a test if necessary and help keep the community safe.
Christina Rees MP said:
“These last six months have been incredibly challenging for all of us, but the efforts of everyone in the community helped to halt the first wave of the coronavirus.
“Unfortunately, with a new spike in infection rates across the country, we need to listen to the Welsh Government and take action to stop the spread.
“I’m also encouraging all constituents who are able to download the new NHS Covid-19 app which launched this week and can be used to check your local risk level and book a test if necessary, as well as letting you know if you are at risk of infection.
“If we all work together by following the rules and guidance, we can stop another full lockdown, support our friends and family and the NHS and prevent another serious wave of infection.”
