Dr Jerry Shankar, Incident Director for Response to the Novel Coronavirus Outbreak at Public Health Wales said: “Public Health Wales advises the public to take personal responsibility for their actions and to ensure that we are all doing our best to limit the transmission of the virus.
“We would like to remind everyone that the coronavirus is still active in our communities, so this does not mean a return to normal life.
“We ask the public to observe the new regulations and limit their contact with others as much as possible so that we work together to reduce the number of positive cases.
“This means staying out of other people’s homes, limiting the times and numbers of people you meet, maintaining social distancing and hand hygiene, working from home if you can, and self-isolating if you develop symptoms of the Coronavirus or are asked to do so by tracing contact.
All of these measures will help break the chains of transmission, reduce the spread of the virus, and keep people safe.
“We understand that people will want to continue shopping for Christmas now that the fire-breaking is over. We suggest trying to visit the shops at non-peak times, to always maintain social distancing and wear a face covering if you can.
“Options such as ‘click & collect’ or online purchase may be something to consider.”
