COVID-19 BARRY UPDATE. Another week and another change to the Welsh Government rules to help us through this Coronavirus Pandemic. South Wales Police continue to ensure that everyone abides by the rules.
Welsh Authorities are making huge efforts to avoid the problems associated with an influx of visitors whilst we remain in lockdown.
Some Barry Island traders have started to prepare for the time when the Government review the Coronavirus Lockdown rules in Wales.
The first businesses to open are those who can offer take-away services. In fact these businesses were never forced by legislation to stop trading. They felt, however, that they had a social responsibility to close so as not to offer anything that might tempt the crowds of visitors we saw on the first weekend of lockdown….
With we have another bank holiday coming and there re photographs across the news of packed beaches in England. Barry Police are taking no chances and are implementing lockdown rules to ensure that our beaches remain safe and acesssible for local residents only.
These outside areas are for us, and us alone to use for exercise and fresh air whilst effectively social distancing…..
Last Saturday night was the first nights that all pubs, clubs and restaurants closed and the town in Barry were in Lockdown. The streets were was eerily quiet.
Check out the images taken Saturday night at 11pm. Broad street would normally be buzzing as people meet their friends, grab a take-away or move from the pub to the late night clubs.
