Rediscover Anglesey safely and respect Welsh Covid-19 rules

CORONAVIRUS has not gone away, and everyone must continue to act responsibly and respectfully to protect their own health and the safety of others.

Visitors to Anglesey are also being reminded to research and familiarise themselves with Welsh Government Covid-19 rules before travelling.

These rules may be different from the area they have travelled from.

Wales officially moved to ‘Covid-19 Alert Level 1’ on Saturday 17 July. Consequently, some restrictions were eased.

However, it is essential that residents and visitors alike continue to follow the below rules:

• wear a face covering in all indoor public places
• only form an extended household with no more than 2 other households and they should stay the same
• not meet with anyone other than your extended household or a maximum of five other people from different households indoors in your home
• not meet with more than five other people in indoor regulated settings, such as cafes, restaurants and pubs (unless you are meeting with only people you live)
• observe social distancing with people you do not live with or who are not in your exclusive extended household

The summer period will see the Island become busier as many more visitors return to the Island to enjoy its fantastic beaches and stunning natural landscape.

As a result, the County Council has re-launched its ‘Rediscover Anglesey Safely’ campaign and is taking steps to support the local tourism and hospitality sector.

Economic Development and Tourism portfolio holder, Councillor Carwyn Jones, said: “The last 16 months have been extremely tough for our communities here on Anglesey as well as the tourism sector and local businesses in general.

“The easing of restrictions provides us all with a chance for some normality, and businesses to make up for lost time this summer.

“Coronavirus has not gone away and we must all act responsibly and respectfully – Anglesey residents and visitors alike.

“We all have an important role to play in protecting the Island.”

He added: “To rediscover Anglesey safely, it is imperative that we show care and consideration of our surroundings and others; and that we closely follow Welsh Government and public health guidelines.”

The County Council’s Rediscover Anglesey Safely campaign applies to all; and encourages people to enjoy their visit or day out, act responsibly to maintain their own safety, and the safety of others.

In addition, the Councils asks everyone to follow these simple guidelines:

• If somewhere looks busy, come back when its quieter and safer
• Respect others on the coast, in shops and in our communities
• Keep to footpaths and bridleways
• Use car parks and spaces, and not private land or highway verges
• Respect the weather and tide – prepare thoroughly
• Research, contact and book facilities and businesses in advance
• Take your rubbish home
• Protect yourself, residents and other visitors – follow the guideline at all times

Anglesey Council Leader, Cllr Llinos Medi, added: “Coronavirus is still a threat to us all. I ask everyone – residents and visitors – to continue to follow the core Covid-19 rules.

“We all have a personal responsibility when it comes to limiting the spread of the virus and protecting others.

“I fully appreciate that the differences in Covid-19 rules across the UK can be confusing. However, when in Wales, it’s imperative that everyone follows the Welsh Covid-19 rules.

“I hope residents and visitors can enjoy the well-deserved summer holidays and rediscover Anglesey in a safe and respectful manner.”
