HOSPITAL VISITING SUSPENDED
Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health Board, which covers RCT, Merthyr Tydfil and Bridgend, have made a statement, saying:
“Despite the increased measures and local lockdown in Rhondda Cynon Taf earlier this week, cases of coronavirus across the Cwm Taf Morgannwg area are continuing to rise and are a real cause for concern.
“As a consequence of this situation across the county boroughs of Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf we are having to suspend visiting as we did at the beginning of the pandemic in order to protect our patients, our staff, and our communities.
“All hospital visiting will be restricted from Saturday, September 19, across all Cwm Taf Morgannwg hospital sites and will come into effect at 9.00 am.
“As a Health Board, we fully appreciate this is incredibly difficult, but please be assured these restrictions will be under constant review.”
Exclusions do apply, which include, when a patient is having end-of-life care, along with paediatrics and neonatal areas, with one person allowed in after being given the go-ahead with the clinical team.
