The following is the advice from the Welsh Assembly Government, which is affecting our ability to re-start our Interest Groups.
What are people in Wales being asked to do after the firebreak? Many people have made huge sacrifices to live within the rules, both before and during the firebreak. We now need to make sure that the effort we have made together is not wasted, and we do not have to undergo a further firebreak later in the year.
To do that, we all need to take steps to keep each other safe, and we must all keep living our lives differently.
The main things we are asking people to do are:
- Stay out of each other's homes except in very limited circumstances
- Limit the times you leave your home, and the distance you travel
- When you do leave home, please try and be restrained in how many different people you see
It is better to see the same one or two people regularly than to see lots of diffeent people
- Maintain social distancing outdoors
- meet people outdoors rather than indoors where possible, even in cicumstances where the law allows you to meet indoors
- Work from home if you can
- Wash your hands regularly and follow advice on hygiene
- You can meet up to 30 people outdoors as long as you socially distance
- Self-isolate if you show symptoms of coronavirus
There are also some laws to make sure people do not choose to take unnecessary risks.
The main requirements are that:
- other than in very limited circumstances, people must not enter each other's homes or gardens
- when you meet people you don't live with away from home,in most circumstances, the absolute maximum number of people meeting should be four (not including any children aged under 11)
- face coverings must still be worn in indoor public places, and
- you must self isolate when you are told to do so by NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect.
