Please Continue To Keep Wales Safe

Please Continue To Keep Wales Safe

Monday 13th Jul 2020

Despite Welsh legislation changing today North Wales Police are continuing to urge people to follow current Welsh Government legislation to help keep Wales safe.

Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Nigel Harrison said: “The region was noticeably busier this weekend with an increased number of people on our beaches and other beauty spots.

“The vast majority of people have listened to the government guidelines. But again we saw people travel in from the North West of England and the Midlands which clearly will be illegal on most occasions.

“As the regulations change here in Wales at 4pm today it will be vitally important that people do the right thing to try to protect their loved ones.   

“The message is clear - stay local whenever you can and keep your distance from each other. It is vitally important you only meet people from one other household in the open air. Keep in mind the purpose of the regulations - to prevent the spread of the virus, protect the NHS and save lives.

“We will continue to engage, explain and encourage people to adhere to the regulations and only enforce where there are clear unacceptable breaches. We will continue to play our part to keep our community as safe as possible but this is a real team game and we all have a role to play to make sure we get through this together. 

“We know it’s been a really difficult time for our communities, but the majority of you have stepped up and followed Welsh Government guidelines, enabling frontline services to keep moving efficiently.

“North Wales is a fantastic place to visit and we look forward to welcoming people back at the right time which isn’t now.”
