For further details see Welsh Government’s Frequently Asked Questions
Essential Health Guidance
- The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of a new continuous cough and / or high temperature or a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell. If you have these symptoms, however mild, or have received a positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test results, then you should immediately self-isolate stay at home for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. If you live with others, all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 10 days.
- You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access you should call NHS 111
- If you have any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) you should arrange a test by visiting NHS.UK or contact 119 via telephone if you do not have internet access
- Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, or hand sanitizer, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, before you eat or handle food, or when you get to work or arrive home
- You must wear a face covering on public transport (buses, trains and taxis) in Wales from 27th July. You must wear a face covering in shops and enclosed public spaces from Monday 14th September. Social distancing, hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes, remain the most important measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19)
- Cover your mouth and nose with disposable tissues when you cough or sneeze. If you do not have a tissue, sneeze into the crook of your elbow, not into your hand. Dispose of tissues into a disposable rubbish bag and immediately wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser
- Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people
IRONMAN 2021 CANCELLED:
Cllr Phil Baker, Pembrokeshire County Council Cabinet Member for Major Events, supported the decision to postpone the event originally planned for September 12th, 2021.
He added: “The postponement of IRONMAN Wales 2021 will, of course, be a disappointment to very many people, myself included, but this decision has been taken with public safety rightly at the forefront.
“Given the sheer number of spectators that have always supported IRONMAN, the narrow nature of parts of the course and the uncertainty that remains over the Covid-19 situation, following extensive discussions with organisers we have reluctantly decided it is not possible for us to support the event this year.”
Amroth Parish Hall has recently re-opened for smaller groups. (which have to comply with Covid-19 regulations) please see our “what’s on” page.
Due to lack of parking in the village, we realise that hall parking spaces have been used by locals during the past year, but we would appreciate if people could please try and avoid the spaces when there are classes on at the hall. Many thanks for your co-operation. We have asked the council in the past to try and help; any suggestions, please let us know on our “contact” page.
PLEASE STAY SAFE, EVERYONE.
Rosemary Tippett-Mawdsley is walking 1000 miles in a year for the Wales Air Ambulance Charitable Trust (20 January 2021 to 19 January 2022) because of the very valuable service it provides locally. £275 has been raised so far raised of the £1,000 target by 13 supporters.
Rosemary’s story: “When the Leader of the Llanteg Walkers’Group wrote in to the local Community Council in January raising awareness of the 1000 mile challenge. I thought that was something I could take part in as I had already started doing a lot of walking during lockdown. However I also realised that 1000 miles is a long way and without an incentive I might fall by the wayside. Hence the reason to do it for charity. I decided upon the Wales Air Ambulance. The Charity is funded by the people of Wales and requires £8 million a year to keep its four helicopters in the sky, serving Wales and saving lives. The charity can be anywhere in Wales within 20 minutes, its doctors and medics fly the A&E department to the patient. It also runs the Children’s Wales Air Ambulance service, transferring vulnerable babies and children to the specialist hospitals across the UK. Your donations will help keep this vital service in Wales.I started my walk on the 20January and I have been out every day since, in rain, hail, wind, snow and sun! I have seen some brilliant views, wonderful sunsets and spoken …..socially distanced of course to lots of people. If you see me on my travels please say hello. I have passed the halfway mark in my travels and now I need your support to spur me on to complete the 1000 miles and support the Wales Air Ambulance. Thank you”
