Barmouth Town Council are closely following the advice and announcements stated by the First Minister Mark Drakeford, and the local announcements stated by Gwynedd Council.
Social distancing rules remain in effect. We, along with Public Health Wales, support the small adjustments made to the regulations which includes allowing people to exercise more than once a day. However, people should stay local. This means any exercise should start and end at home and not involve going a significant distance from home.
Wales is NOT open to visitors yet.
The message from us was, and still is, STAY AT HOME, PROTECT OUR NHS, SAVE LIVES.
Travelling to Wales to exercise, enjoy our great outdoors or to visit our seaside towns will result in a fine and the potential for a court appearance. North Wales Police and our bordering police forces are actively patrolling and acting on all breaches of the regulations in Wales.
All Gwynedd Council and Snowdonia National Park car parks are closed and all Public Conveniences are closed.
As much as we love to see our beaches and High Street bustling with the sounds of happiness and excitement, now is not the time to be here. Our local economy will get through this and will welcome visitors back with open arms… when it is safe to do so.
Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still circulating in every part of Wales, and the single most important action we can all take in fighting the virus is to stay at home. We want to thank each and every person across Wales and the UK for doing their bit to help slow the spread of the virus.
