Extra restrictions for more than 500,000 people as fresh lockdowns announced in Wales

Written by on 29/09/2020

Four more areas in North Wales are being put into local lockdown following a rise in coronavirus cases, the health minister has said.

Vaughan Gething said the measures for Denbighshire, Flintshire, Conwy and Wrexham would affect another half a million people.

From 6pm on Thursday:

  • 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

Eleven of 22 Welsh local authority areas are already under special measures, but the four additions will mean nearly three-quarters of the country is affected.
