Cardiff and the Vale are facing a Covid emergency

Organisations on the frontline of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan’s response to Covid-19 have come together to warn that they are facing an emergency situation as recorded cases of Covid-19 in the region reach record highs.

The Police, University Health Board, Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan councils are extremely concerned by sharp rises in transmission and test positivity rates as well as the sheer numbers of cases.

Now the bodies responsible for keeping people safe during the pandemic are appealing to the public to address the behaviours that have put Cardiff and the Vale on course for crisis.

Aside from keeping two metres apart, regular hand-washing, and wearing a face covering when needed, it is important to:

•        Avoid car sharing.

•        Work from home wherever possible.

•        Avoid social interaction if you need to visit a place of work.

•        Avoid socialising and mixing in other people’s homes.

•        Conduct Christmas shopping alone.

It is also important to self-isolate and get tested if showing any symptoms and to self-isolate if another member of the household is showing symptoms.
