Gwent Police Statement Following Local Lockdown Announced In Caerphilly. 

Tuesday 29th Sep 2020

Following the Welsh Government announcement yesterday, Caerphilly will have additional restrictions in place from 6pm today (8th September 2020).

Chief Constable Pam Kelly said:

“We understand that this is a challenging time for our local communities. Since the start of the pandemic we’ve all had to make significant changes to our way of life.

“This will cause frustration for many, particularly those who are following the existing guidance closely, but we all now must do what we can to control the spread of this virus across Caerphilly.

“Throughout the pandemic we’ve been working with our local authority partners to ensure that measures are in place to help communities and prevent the spread of COVID - 19. This will continue as we respond to the current situation.

“Our officers will be out in the community, engaging and encouraging everyone to follow social distancing and the new restrictions coming into play.   Today we will be working to understand the new guidance and regulations and what enforcement action we can take for the few who do not comply with the new restrictions. 

“Now more than ever we need to act as a community and follow the new measures.  By working together we can hopefully reverse the increase in numbers over the next few weeks so we are asking everyone to play their part.”
