Local lockdowns have been issued to four more areas within Wales as cases continue to rise.
People in Newport, Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil and Blaenau Gwent will have to adhere to local lockdown rules that will come into effect on Tuesday, September 22 at 6pm.
The new rules mean that people in Newport, Bridgend, Blaenau Gwent and Merthyr Tydfil:
- Must wear a face covering in shops if they are aged over 11.
- Can no longer meet with people from other households indoors. Extended households will not be allowed and overnight stays will be banned.
- Cannot enter or leave the borough council area without a “reasonable excuse”. This includes work, if people are unable to work from home, as well as making a compassionate visit to a loved one or to provide care.
- Can only meet others outdoors.
This comes after RCT was placed into lockdown last week and Caerphilly shortly before.
